The last few times we have been to Disney I see the same speed trap and car after car get a speeding ticket while trying to discover the magic of Disney.
When driving on World Drive to or from the Contemporary watch your speed as the Orange County Sheriff has a nice little spot just before or after Vista Boulevard (World Drive runs along the monorail line here).
Not the way to start your day! :eek: :crying: :eek:
Thanks for the reminder Tink!! :D

With the piddly little rental we usually end up with, speeding tickets are not a problem.

There's another one on the street by WWof Sports & Pop Century. When we were there, there were cop cars just parked there just about every time we took a bus ride!

I am surprised thepr are speed traps on Disney property.

That intersection is JUST at the entrance to the World, so maybe it isn't on property!?! That's a good point!

Earlier this month, while driving back to the airport (MCO - Orlando), the cops were using radar right before approaching the airport. Of course my rental minivan was able to go right thru --who speeds in a minivan? :-)

We drove to disney on our honeymoon to save on airfare. On the way home I fell asleep and all of sudden I hear my dh swearing, he was being pulled over in our minivan for doing 140km in a hundred. A $400 ticket. It was a chevy Venture he was driving. We should have flowen. The officer told me I was not to fall asleep again.
