    With the proliferation of cellphones and other portable devices, why would anyone be remotely worried about something like this?

    I agree with F5VHZ.... Enjoy the park and leave the radio at home!

    Many of the Constitutional protections only apply to the governmental bodies and subsidiary organizations.

    The best example involves suspected shoplifters. If a merchant has reason to suspect you're trying to leave his premises with merchandise that you didn't pay for, the merchant can detain you and search you WITHOUT A SEARCH WARRANT.

    Once you contact law enforcement, even if it's to ask for advice, it becomes a "law enforcement search" and a warrant is required

    Maybe, but that would only apply to suspected shoplifting. Private individuals / organizations cannot confiscate your property, that would be theft, and you can bring charges against them.

    On the other hand, we're replying to a four year old thread.

    Don't know about Disney World but many decades ago Disney Land in Anaheim CA actually had a ham radio club and had a 2 meter repeater on site with the antenna atop the Matterhorn. Good coverage for miles around. Used it many times when I lived in Orange County CA

    Property owners have the right to prohibit the public from bring certain items onto their property, The public MUST BE informed of restricted/prohibited items by notices printed on admission tickets or posted at entrances to the venue.

    Trying bringing prohibited items into a major league sports venue. The prohibited item will be confiscated and you MAY BE denied admission. This practice dates back to at least the '70s at the major league ball parks.

    That's nice to see there is a radio club and repeaters around the park. I don't think I would take a radio with me if I were going there... I'd simply enjoy it with my family.

    Last time I checked, the repeater had been moved to a location outside the park, but that was several years ago. Since I don't go to DL very often and I usually leave my radios at home when I do, I don't know if it's still operational.

    I got a QSL card from a 2 meter net on one of the repeaters there back in the 90’s. I didn’t carry a radio the last time I was there.
