Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Guests have certainly been putting Disney’s security teams and Disney’s Cast Members to the test recently, with everything from fistfights to abuse on their track record — but social media influencers have also been causing trouble, and one social-media-loving woman has been banned from Disneyland after exhibiting some shocking behavior on a classic Disney ride!
The J Family is a family of Youtubers and TikTokers whose matriarch, Myley, has been banned from Disneyland (and had her Annual Pass revoked). The J Family spoke to the popular website Buzzfeed about the ban, explaining their side of the story in three videos. Check them out below!
Apparently, Myley jumped onto one of the moving Pirates of the Caribbean boats because she had been separated from her family in the ride queue and had gotten so far behind that her family was about to round the bend in their boat without her.
Instead of just riding with strangers and contenting herself with that experience, or going on the popular Disneyland ride a second time with her family, Miley chose to trespass over a gate and jump onto the boat as it moved away.
The Pirates of the Caribbean ride was then slowed down shortly thereafter, with Myley and her family realizing that Disney Cast Members were not letting her behavior go easily. Instead, Disney security guards were checking each boat to determine which Guest had jumped.
Myley was then approached by Disney personnel when she exited the ride; they took down her identifying information, relieved her of her Annual Pass, and escorted her out of the Disney Park.
“My brain wasn’t working as a normal brain in that moment,” Myley admitted when thinking about her reasons for jumping. “It was only thinking one thing: ‘I gotta get on Pirates'”. However, as soon as Myley sat down, the family experienced “instant regret” and Myley worried throughout the ride that she was going to be “in so much trouble” and lose her Annual Pass — which she did.
She even attempted to disguise her appearance, knowing that Disney employees would be looking for “the lunatic that jumps onto the moving boat”.
Although the J Family seemed to approach this situation with good humor as they looked back on it, and were apologetic at the time of the incident, other Disney fans are not holding back on their negative opinions regarding Myley’s behavior.
“1st rule broken was line jumping,” one TikTok user pointed out, since Myley admitted that she had cut past several people in line to catch up with her family members “Once you leave the line – it’s not okay to cut in front of everyone to get back with your party.”
“As an Annual Passholder I can’t understand why she would be so desperate to ride. She could go any time,” another TikTok user pointed out. Another saw no humor in the incident, asking “why is it funny that they broke the rules?”.
Myley was able to get a new Annual Pass after the null-and-void Annual Pass expired, and expressed regret when it came to her actions as she spoke about the experience. Have you ever seen someone jump onto a boat during a Disney ride?
