The theme parks are a place to have fun and relax with the family, however people also find themselves on the wrong side of the law and get arrested while at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, Florida. Many times alcohol is a factor at this theme park due to all the bars and restaurants plus the sale of alcohol through the park. Many people also find themselves making the mistake of committing a retail theft at one of the stores. No matter how small the amount of the theft you will still get arrested and charged or be given a notice to appear in court.
The common misconception is that Disney World will not have you arrested for theft while at the theme parks. Disney World will almost always have you arrested and seek prosecution if you are caught stealing even a small dollar item. I have represented numerous clients who were down here on vacation or live here and were visiting the theme parks and were arrested for shoplifting or other crimes. If you find yourself in this situation and do not hire an attorney you will be required to attend court dates in Florida which you would have to attend in person.
