The Disney parks PR folks are having a rotten week. The day after a small dry-ice bomb exploded at Disneyland in Anaheim, a woman and her grandson found a loaded pistol on the Dinosaur ride at Walt Disney World in Orlando. Grandma turned the Cobra .380 automatic over to park authorities, who called Orange County Sheriffs. When deputies found its owner, 44-year-old Angelo Lista, in the park, he told them he realized the gun was missing several minutes after he’d left the ride. Lista — who has a concealed-weapon permit — said he didn’t realize that Disney doesn’t allow park visitors to pack heat, assuming that the checkpoint patrons go through before entry is merely to check bags for weapons and explosives. He later told deputies that the piece “just slipped out” of his pocket “as a result of the ride being extremely bumpy”.
