Recently there seem to be several physical altercations between Park Guests at Walt Disney World Resort. This particular fight, like the others, results from alleged line-cutting while waiting for Disney Park attractions.

The Original Incident

The incident happened in the queue for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at the Magic Kingdom theme Park. The accused woman, Eboni McFarley, was arrested and charged with battery. McFarley had entered the queue with four children. She tried to make her way through the line of people to “join the rest of her party” but was stalled when a pair of senior citizens refused to budge.

The two women (ages 73 and 64) told McFarley to wait in line just like everybody else. McFarley became agitated, according to those who witnessed the exchange. She then tried to force her way past the two older women and scratched one with her nail-drawing blood.

The Escalation

Witnesses in line tried to intervene but only found themselves getting pushed and attacked by McFarley, as well. One woman from Illinois who confronted McFarley was shoved into a wall, while three men (the eldest being 72) were also pushed to the side. Meanwhile, one woman told McFarley not to touch anyone after managing to snap a few photos on her phone as the altercation unfolded.

McFarley, however, maintains her innocence. She stated that she did nothing wrong and was the victim in the scenario, claiming she was targeted for being African-American.

The Fallout

A battery charge was filed, but the case was “not suitable for prosecution,” according to the assistant state attorney’s office. However, McFarley is trespassed from the entire Walt Disney World Resort property, meaning she is banned from ever returning to the Disney theme parks.Banned from Disney

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…)
