ORLANDO, Fla. -- A man who says he forgot he had a firearm on him and unsuccessfully tried to get into Walt Disney World is facing a criminal charge.

Court records show Nathan Polit was charged Monday with carrying a concealed weapon, a third-degree felony.

Authorities said he didn't have a concealed carry permit.

Orlando television station WKMG reports Polit was stopped at a security checkpoint Sunday when he tried to get into Animal Kingdom at Disney World.

He told authorities he had moved his handgun from his vehicle to a backpack because he was worried about a vehicle break-in, but he forgot to put it back in the car.
