Filming at Disney

A man was banned from Disney for life for posting videos he took of non-public areas.

And now this... a man fimed an entire movie without anyone knowing. It will be interesting to see what happens with this one.

It's going to be interesting to see how the first story plays out with the law. I know at least one student film project that was shot at WDW (because a peer of mine did it when we were there). He had no issues shooting either, but he also didn't distribute it for profit or bring it to a festival like Sundance. With smaller cameras and more advanced editing programs, as well as the popular desire for a rough and not so polished final look, it's easy to get away with filming a scripted scene discreetly. It's not so hard to blend in with people taking vacation videos.

Adam the Woo on the other hand...well, as someone who likes abandoned places, I very much admire the videos on his website. I was in high school at the peak of Weird NJ's popularity and admit to doing urban exploring that was probably dangerous and could have gotten me in trouble if I got caught. But exploring an abandoned factory or creepy looking caves aren't the same as trespassing on land currently held by a major corporation that strictly prohibits guests in certain areas.

And I admit it, two weeks ago in Ft Wilderness I couldn't help but grab a few quick photos of River Country for my own personal scrapbook. But in doing so, I didn't set foot in any of the grounds that are blocked off from the public because I knew the risk of doing so. Everything I saw was viewable from an area accessible to guests. To me the risk of being banned from Disney is not worth the excitement of seeing all of it close up. Honestly, I'm surprised that he thought the company wouldn't ban him immediately. His youtube videos have ads on them, which means he makes a profit on exposing their off-limits areas, no matter how small of a profit it may be. That's something they can't let go.

Anyway, if anyone is interesting in seeing some of his videos, here is his site. And here is his River Country video.

I honestly do not know what I would do with myself if I ever got banned from Disney.

That's what I thought as well...I don't need to get behind the magic that badly.

The banning makes me wonder how the heck Disney enforces bans. I just don't see how they can actually enforce bans. You need id for an annual pass so it's possible there & I suppose it's possible at the ticket booths as they could have pictures of those that are currently banned. What I don't understand is enforcement at the park entrance since you can buy tickets from Undercover Tourist & at DL from neighboring non-Disney hotels.

Perhaps through the biometric scan? You can buy a ticket someplace else but you still have to put your finger down.

But what if you use a different finger? Also I'm quite sure they have facial recognition on their security camera system. Now thats not instantaneous like you see on TV, but it works, we have it at work, but don't use it yet. Heck google has it!
