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.

    • The way I see it is that it depends on the spiritual stage of the couple. Remember we are not robots programmed to act in a such manner. There is no program/software put in us to behave only in such particular way.   Giving example based on original topic here. One couple who are amritdhari but spiritual Jeevna is at let say beginner level.  They believe issue like eating outside or sexting between them is ok. This is because their inner mind (spiritual level) does not make them think that it is wrong ‘yet’.    Now another couple who are practicing Sikhi at high spiritual level and their mind says that refrain eating outside and indulge in any sexting. That is their gut at oriented lifestyle.   They both are Sikh couple at different spiritual stage. There is no quick fix to make the young couple think otherwise, unless they advance to higher spirituality with help of sangat and discipline.    Now you will also see folks following rules such as above - same example of refrain from eating outside etc etc.. but the only negative part is that they are doing it without their inner spiritual awakening. Now, it is always good to have rules for newbie to follow but it is a temporary roadmap to get on high ground of spirituality. We have lot of those folks even me in this category.  
    • Same as today any writer can write about general majority of Sikhs being non-turbaned, drinking or some smoking. 100 years later we cannot simply believe that they were the actual Sikh. Just like in past there were actual Sikhs who followed guru path and some who were on and off that path with their weakness. Maharaja Ranjit is the perfect example of a Sikh who was not a Sikh in our guru eyes with his lifestyle.
