Does paying big bucks for a Walt Disney World vacation entitle you to break the rules? One Walt Disney World Guest seems to think so! You’ll never believe why one Guest thought he was entitled to skip out on some health and safety protocols.
No right, no wrong, no rules for me…
Recently, one Disney World Guest thought he could test the limits of Disney’s health and safety protocols by refusing to comply with a temperature screening.
Kelly Sills, 47 of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was caught skipping the temperature screening tent in Disney Springs.
Authorities confronted Sills outside The Boathouse Restaurant after he skipped the temperature screening tent.
Sills refused to go back to have his temperature screened and then refused to leave the property when asked by Disney and the sheriff’s office.
Sills had one big reason why he thought you should be exempt from this important health and safety protocol.
As Sills was being handcuffed, he stated:
“I paid $15,000. You can’t trespass me for paying $15,000. If I take $15,000 from you, I can’t kick you out… Bring me to jail for $15,000 grand, I’m fine… In front of my kids, too, at Disney World.”Orlando Sentinel
As officers escorted Sills from the property, he seemed to have a change of heart. He pleaded with them to allow him to have his temperature screened, after all.
Sills was arrested and trespassed from all Disney property.
Testing the limits
Sills is among a handful of other Guests who thought they could avoid complying with Disney’s strict health and safety protocols.
It seems every few weeks, we hear stories about Guests refusing to wear a mask for varying reasons.
For now, if you want to visit Disney World, you will have to comply with the health and safety protocols that are in place to protect Cast Members and other Guests.
