Disney Guest’s Vehicle Burglarized in Disney Parking Lot
The Bonds family visited Walt Disney World last week and had a not so magical (or typical) experience. On Saturday night after returning to their car after visiting the Magic Kingdom they found their vehicle had been burglarized on the theme park’s property.
The Bonds family lost a computer, GPS, some Christmas gifts and even a loaded gun with the value of the items stolen well into the thousands of dollars, said the family.
“I have stories of coming back to my car, in a Disney parking lot, with nothing left,” said Jennifer Bond.
The gun taken from the family’s car was Randy Bond’s grandfathers.
“What if that gets given to somebody, or sold to someone, and somebody gets killed with that gun, I mean how am I going to feel,” said Bond.
Unfortunately, Disney security told the family that there are no security cameras in some of the park’s parking lots, including the Magic Kingdom lot where there car was parked.
Interesting tip, according to the Orange County Sheriff Office and Disney security officers who talked with the family, car thieves are cruising the parking lots at local attractions with a handful of keyless entry devices until a car’s lights or alarms go off. That allows for an easy in and out for the thieves.
