Under Florida Statue §810.09 a trespass occurs when, whoever, without being authorized, licensed, or invited, willfully enters or remains in any structure or conveyance, or, having been authorized, licensed, or invited, is warned by the owner or lessee of the premises, or by a person authorized by the owner or lessee, to depart and refuses to do so, commits the offense of trespass in a structure or conveyance.

For purposes of Disney, this would mean you are no longer allowed on any Disney Property, this includes the Theme Parks, Disney Springs, Disney Resort Hotels, and other Disney owned and operated areas. This could include a “ban” or trespass from Disney Parks and Resorts in other states or countries.
No not always, just because you have been trespassed does not mean they have brought criminal charges against you. However, depending on the incident that got you trespassed there may be criminal charges associated. Also, should you attempt to go back onto a theme park property, like Disney or Universal Studios, once you have been trespassed, you can be charged criminally for trespassing.
Lately, we have noticed that Disney is really cracking down on firearms, and any person attempting to bring guns or any kind of weapons onto the property. We have had many cases where people only bring a gun in their car or it’s on their person in a parking lot (not in a park, but technically on Disney property), and Disney security finds out about it, and ban that person from ever coming back to the theme park. Furthermore, even if you have a concealed firearm license, and you try to come onto Disney property with your gun, they also have the ability and discretion to issue you a lifetime ban.
The amount of time of a trespass from a theme park, like Disney or Universal Studios, can vary. However, most trespasses that are entered are lifetime bans or lifetime trespasses.
Disney has its very own security department and while they do not have their own website for security and trespass related issues you can find some information about them here: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/guest-services/park-security/
Once a person has been trespassed or banned, Disney security and the legal team are made aware and all further inquiries into the matter goes through those offices. A Disney Ban and Disney Trespass Lawyer can help you write an effective letter to increase your chances of prevailing.

Walt Disney World reserves the right to ban or trespass individuals from its premises to maintain a safe and enjoyable experience for all guests. Reasons for banning may include engaging in disruptive or illegal behavior, violation of park rules or policies, harassment of cast members or other guests, intentional damage to property, or attempts to resell tickets for unauthorized purposes. The severity and duration of the ban depend on the nature and extent of the offense. Often, they are lifetime bans and/or trespasses.

I recently found a very well-written and thorough article on this topic here relating to Disney Bans.
Being banned from Walt Disney World has significant consequences. The individual is denied access to any of the parks, resorts, and entertainment venues owned by Disney. This includes being unable to visit Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and other Disney-owned properties. Additionally, the ban may extend to online services, such as the My Disney Experience app or Disney’s official websites.
Disney takes the enforcement of bans seriously, employing advanced technology and security measures to identify banned individuals attempting to enter the parks. The duration of the ban varies, ranging from a temporary ban for a specified period to a permanent ban, depending on the severity of the offense and any repeat violations.
If your appeal to have the trespass or ban lifted is denied, then you can reapply in 1 year.
Being banned from Walt Disney World has substantial implications, with individuals facing restrictions on park access and other related services.
