    Was the door locked with the safety bar?

    I go to the bathroom with the door open so they can have fun walking in to the byproduct of a Casey Corner hotdog, a dole whip, and about 8 Busch Lights. No issue on my end.

    It's the CM's safety that I am deeply concerned about. There should be a buddy system (or something similar) if this new policy puts them at risk. No question that Disney has an outstanding record of safety (which also makes them an attractive target, unfortunately). I am not saying I would carry/use any weapon at Disney, but rather paint a deplorable scenario that is part of their risk assessment/planning.

    Locked, no safety bar at that hotel.

    Okay, so now stuff doesn't match up for me.

    The OP is just NOW talking about an instance where someone came in his room? Nearly six pages in?

    And "I am not saying I would carry/use any weapon at Disney" – when in the first post he said "I almost always have a baseball bat in my room" and spent other posts talking about items that could be used as weapons?

    I just can't pretend to understand what's happening anymore.

    Almost does not equal always. No confusion there at all.

    Nothing is 100%.

    I am usually reading the material that is on the table in room or that we get at checkin because my phone is charging and it won't reach. That should answer your question.

    Then why even start a thread asking what would happen if you assaulted someone coming into your room with a baseball bat?

    I guess it comes down to the fact that I have more reliance on Disney security than you do. I am certain that it is a major part of parks management and that they have hired some premier talent to help manage the same. Likely some DoD individuals as you referenced. After all they hired a retired general to build WDW

    OP: What if during a CM access (if someone was unaware they were entering or have entered) that someone challenges them? Then a sub-bullet mentioned that I ALMOST always have a baseball bat when staying in a hotel room.

    "Not saying I would ever assault a cast member with a baseball bat – but IF I DID, would I be held liable?"

    IF is a scenario question, not just limited to me.

    Remember, the context is not being able to discern a CM or an intruder.

    Back to square one on this one. It’s never okay to assault a CM with a baseball bat and it’s pretty strange to preplan for the event by bringing a bat on vacation with you. Over and out

    Well, the question was specifically phrased as a "what if I did this" scenario.

    Withholding so much context from the original question, trying to walk back multiple previous statements ... I've gotta call it quits on this thread.

    Good luck, truly.

    IF applies to any individual in the interest of risk assessment and potential threats a CM may encounter.
