Disney World at Christmas time.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (FoxNews.com) –  A Walt Disney World patron on a ride with her grandson found a loaded gun on her seat, officials said Wednesday.

According to FoxNews.com, Officials said that the woman found the pistol on the Dinosaur ride at Animal Kingdom. The woman turned over the loaded weapon to a park attendant, who then contacted her manager and authorities.

The gun’s owner, Angelo Lista, told authorities he discovered his gun was missing several minutes after leaving the ride. He has a concealed weapons permit.

Lista told authorities he didn’t know Disney World patrons weren’t allowed to bring guns. He said he thought the security checkpoint at the entrance to the Florida theme park was only so that guards could check bags for bombs or explosives. Patrons do not walk through metal detectors nor are they subject to patdowns.

Disney World prohibits patrons from bringing weapons of any kind on its property.
