The Fight Seen Around the World

The confrontation arose when one family requested the other to move aside momentarily for a photo. In response, the family member being asked became extremely upset and resorted to throwing punches involving other individuals. Equally distressing was a woman holding a toddler while a young boy watched from the sidelines.

Videos capturing the fight swiftly circulated on social media, leaving viewers appalled by the disgraceful behavior exhibited by one party involved.

Medical professionals treated the victims at the scene and the Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that no one was arrested after the fight. The office stated that the victim did not wish to press charges.

As per the Orange County Sheriff’s office, two individuals were issued trespass notices by Disney, prohibiting them from returning to the property. The duration of these bans is unknown, but given the severity of the violence displayed, it is highly likely to be a lifetime ban.

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
