No problem at all. It will be hot as hell. I went last year and it was terrible because of summer rush and huge lines. I felt that maybe because I usually like quiet vacation spots but again with little kids, you can't have everything. Good location but weather is like india and more ppl from other countries fill that place up.

Thanks. Do they make you go through body scanners and use metal detection wands? Just worried about kirpan of course...

They do have security check station where they look into your bags etc. I wear very small kirpan but always underneath. We went in with no problem. I also know a Singh who visits from Canada almost every year and he says it’s no issue.

I went to Disneyland in California last year, and we were not allowed to wear Kirpans inside. They had metal detectors and would not allow Kirpans inside under any circumstances, religious or not. I think you should personally call their security department and get additional information or perhaps pre-approval, and also you may have to look at wearing small Kirpans.

No, you wiil not be allowed to take in kirpan.  Metal detectors that you have to walk thru like airport security. before you go thru turnstiles.

@S1ngh is referring to the turnstiles where you have the bag check. This used to be main point of entry before the scanners came in few years ago. If it asks you to declare any items that may be considered dangerous, and it will have posters with pictures, then you must declare. Don't try and "conceal" to sneak it in.   The police dept will come down heavy if there is any issue and you will spend the night in a cell until released by legal representative.

Then don't forget Universal park, they've had the same levels of security for many years.

I don't remember going thru metal detector when i was there last year. However, family of ours went in with sri sahibs and same with disney land and universal studios many time. I guess it is more like hit and miss thing.

Thanks for this information. It seems too risky. Its a big cost from UK and could be huge disappointment for children if turned away. Sad times when arguably the most peace loving way of life is turned away for the fear of mindless violence.

    • I saw the video on TikTok I think. It was at Wembley Stadium and I was unable to bookmark/favourite it because Tiktok decided to refresh. It was the "mainstream" Chaupai Sahib you will hear at a Singh Sabha gurdwaras, usually so-called Ramgarhia gurdwaras and also for the past 100 year or so in Harimandir Sahib under the current committee system.  In other words, the sikhs who give up or quit at ਖੜਗ ਕੇਤ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ਰਨਿ ਤਿਹਾਰੀ ॥ ਆਪ ਹਾਥ ਦੈ ਲੇਹੁ ਉਬਾਰੀ ॥ Lord of the Almighty Sword, provides a shield for my protection. With Your Hands you have saved me.   ਸਰਬ ਠੌਰ ਮੋ ਹੋਹੁ ਸਹਾਈ ॥ ਦੁਸ਼ਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥ You bestow help on me at all places and rescue me from pain and the designs of my demons.401. Kharag kait mai sarann tihaaree. Aap haath dai leho ubaaree. Sarab thor mo hoho sahaaee. Dustt dokh té leho bachaaee. (25) O The Lord of Sword, I seek Your protection. With Your Hands you have guarded me. At All Times be my Support. Save me from wickedness and pain. (25).
    • Bro, can you post from what line to what line they did paath of?
    • A decade later and I can show you all what the problem is. Both Khalsa Primary School and students from Pioneer Secondary Academy were invited for Vaisakhi celebrations, and they done a Chaupai Sahib paat. The problem is, they performed the politics ridden anti-dasam Bhasauria mutilated cut version of Benti Chaupai which is disrespectful to traditional puraatan samrpadaiye and mahapurakh. If bani politics is going to be used on children to skip lines from Dasam Pita ji dhan dhan Guru Gobind Singh ji's Benti Chaupai Sahib, that certain groups think it is ok to do, then @serious guptwas right to raise concerns a decade ago! IN 2024, when sangat is much more knowledgable about dasam bani and katha, when we have so many resources - then if we are not allowing our children to learn bani shud and let them choose their groups to follow later, then this raises RED FLAGS IN 2024!!!! AKAAAAL!
