Two people were arrested at Walt Disney World in separate incidents Monday after authorities say they tried to enter two Disney parks with firearms.

  • 2 people tried to carry gun into Disney parks, deputies say
  • One arrested at Animal Kingdom, the other at Epcot
  • Both incidents happened Monday

Baleigh Lynn Turner, 23, of Mobile, Alabama and Michael Langston, 61, of Louisiana face charges of carrying a concealed weapon.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, Turner had a loaded .380 caliber gun in her backpack. A bag-checker at the entrance to Disney's Animal Kingdom found the gun. Her concealed weapons permit expired in January, the Mobile County Sheriff's Office told the off-duty deputy working at the park.

Langston was arrested at Epcot. His weapon was found after a Disney security officer selected him for a random metal detector screening.

Both face a charge of carrying a concealed weapon.

Disney bans guns from its parks, and even guests with weapons permits can face trespassing charges.
