Marcia Temple Incident Details
The incident occurred on October 8 at the Disney Ticket Transportation Center in the Magic Kingdom.
Officers were told that Marcia Temple had placed a wallet behind a plant and left it as abandoned property before going through the metal detector, according to the sheriff’s office. When officers opened the bag to see who it belonged to, they found a loaded gun. She ran 10 rounds with one round in the chamber.
When an officer opened the bag, Temple walked up to her and said, “Ma’am, it’s mine,” WTSP reported.
An Advent Health employee was doing temperature checks at the entrance when she saw Temple grab something from a stroller, the sheriff’s office said. He saw her take the item and put it behind some plants next to the tents in the security area.

But when asked why she brought a gun to Disney World, she said her 6-year-old son was supposed to hold it.
“I had told my son to hug me and stay here while I go find my brother,” Temple said, according to WTSP. “He left it and messed with the plants and I gave them back to him, but I didn’t know that I had left it and I didn’t know that I had left it here.”

She was charged with carrying a concealed firearm and received a trespassing warning prohibiting her from returning to all Walt Disney World properties.
