A 61-year-old man was arrested Monday after being discovered with a loaded gun at Walt Disney World, according to multiple reports.

The Orlando Sentinel reported Michael Langston of Louisiana attempted to enter the Epcot theme park by going through the no-bag security line. The arrest affidavit states that a Disney security officer noticed Langston and asked the man to go through the metal detector. At that point, Langston confessed to having a gun in his possession.

Police found a loaded Smith and Wesson Bodyguard .380 automatic tied around the suspect's waist. The gun was fully loaded.

Langston had no intention to declare his firearm, according to the arrest report, nor does he have a permit to carry a concealed weapon. He reportedly told officers he forgot to leave his gun at his hotel room, but he didn't want to take the time to drop it off. 

A Disney spokeswoman confirmed all firearms are prohibited on any Disney property. 

Langston posted bond and was released on Tuesday, according to court records, and is banned from all Disney properties.
