All the heightened security at Downtown Disney still can't prevent something like this. Apparently, an off-duty Disney cast member and her boyfriend were robbed at gun-point at Pleasure Island early Thursday.
It just shows you how difficult it is to monitor a public place such as Downtown Disney while still not infringing on people's rights. Disney certainly do not want such incidents to occur, but yet they'll get bad PR if they try to crack down on something like this by imposing preemptive measures that can easily be perceived as infringing upon individual rights, especially if they appear to be doing something that resembles a "racial profiling".
Knock on wood, I haven't had any unpleasant experience at DD.
