Bad Guest Behavior

Over the last few years, we have seen our fair share of poorly behaved Guests. Whether that be someone sticking their feet in the water on Splash Mountain, brawls breaking out, or a drunk man shutting down the Skyliner, we feel like we have seen it all. School parents even went so far as to take a dip in an Epcot fountain

Disney even went so far as to post a courtesy reminder on the website over one year ago.

Be the magic you want to see in the world. You must always remember to treat others with respect, kindness and compassion. Those who can’t live up to this simple wish may be asked to leave Walt Disney World Resort.

Be the magic you want to see in the world.

Magic Gone?

It seems like fights and arguments occurring at Disney seem to be more common than in the past. Maybe it’s the increase of social media in our technological world or emotions at an all time during a pandemic. While we certainly don’t like reporting it, it does shed a light on the state of the theme parks and the daily happenings.

It definitely feel like all these arguments and fights are causing the magic to fade a bit at The Most Magical Place on Earth. No one likes to witness these incidents, especially when you are traveling with children.

We have reported fights and arguments on the tramsferry boats, and in the parks. We share these incidents to make you aware that these physical fights and verbal arguments do happen in the park. Many of us like to think we leave the real world behind when we visit the parks, but that is not always the case.

Brawl at the Magic Kingdom

Just yesterday, May 15, a fight took place in front of the train station at the Magic Kingdom. According to our eye witness who saw the incident take place, a family was getting a photo with a PhotoPass Photographer. Another family walked in the picture on their way into the park and the family getting their photo taken grew upset.

This led to a physical fight where blood was drawn and law enforcement stepped in. Approximately 6 people in both groups were involved throwing punches, pushing each other, and more.

It does appear that a few people in the group did attempt to stop the fight. They could be heard yelling, “Stop! Stop!” Unfortunately, this did not stop the fight.

We are unaware if any arrests were made or if anyone was transported to the hospital. Many people will argue this type of behavior deserves a lifetime ban from the Disney World theme parks.

Two parties got into a brawl at the Magic Kingdom over a photo.

What do you think? Should they be banned? Let us know in the comments below.


  1. I think it is the exhaustion, overstimulation, heat, and stress over the cost of admission, trip to get there, and family members that contributed to the bad behavior. They snapped.

    Nevertheless, it was inexcusable for a civilized society.

  2. This is not a Black, Latin, Acian, Redneck or any body in particular. This is plainly been not polite, educated or simply a nice person. Just the fact that you are at Disney with your family or not having a good time were there are other families duing the same should be enoff for any body to control your emotions and avoid confrontations. I blame bouth side. If am with my family and encounter a situation like this any were the last thing I will do is complaint and start a confrontation that I dont know where it may end. Just ingnored and continue with another picture shoot. There is a time and a place for evrething and at the times we are all living confrontations may end up deadly.

  3. Umm Donald it was Black New Yorkers that attacked a white family that was getting their photo taken the Disney photographer. So those are just FACTS, and honestly MOST of these issues have video that backs up those facts. You can change your OPINION, but you can’t change facts.

  4. There’s so much violence in the world right now it’s very disturbing it does not matter the color of anyone’s skin the violence is everywhere! Treat others as you would like to be treated !! Set a good example for your kids !!!

  5. Exactly!!!If you walk in front of a group of people getting their picture taken accidentally because you are looking around.Thats different!!I’ve done it and I stopped and was very apologetic about it!!Then move on!If you did it because of pure meanness then you need a good shot to the “you know whats”!!!There are stupid people in every race and color!Stop this stupid stupid things of saying blacks or Hispanic or WHATEVER race or color!!In my opinion when you do that you are looking for trouble and when you do that around me you’re gonna get it!!But the bottom line is that when you do that in front of your children or anyone else’s children you are showing the kind of person that doesn’t need to be around children at all! IT’S DISNEY FOLKS!!!!HAVE FUN AND MOVE ON!!!!

  6. Lifetime ban for those involved. It’s on camera. Let the others go on with their day. Disney needs to enact facial recognition on all guest why wrong the park for this reason. Be up front about it. If people don’t wanna go they won’t. Those people don’t need to go to large public places anyway.

  7. It seems race has more to do with it than we’d like it to be. But Race in itself isn’t the Sole factor..you may find blacks and Latinos involved in many confrontation due to the fact they were brought up in similar environments. Skin pigment doesn’t determine a person’s level of integrity.

  8. One family is minding their business taking a family photo. Another family deliberately walks into the middle of the photo. It’s rude it’s disrespectful and reeks of bullying. Unfortunately this is the baseline for the past several generations. Zero respect.

  9. Exactly. Race has nothing to do with it. I think a lifetime ban is perfect. Also the Ducky person isn’t spelling correctly. Makes me wonder if he or she is just a trouble started.

  10. People need to grow up and act like civil people .
    This world is going to hell in a hand basket fast.
    Parents should be teaching there children to behave not act like animals.

  11. WTF?? WHAT DOES r RACE HAVE TO DO WITH THIS… ALWAYS GOTTA START THE RACE BAITING!!! maybe these people were just assholes and has nothing to do with color!!! i’m so sick of this crap… yall just trying to start some sort of civil race war huh>?:
