Disney Cast Members are all about creating magic, but in this situation this Cast Member should be considered a hero for helping a domestic violence victim that called Walt Disney World, pretending to book a vacation. Thankfully, the Cast Member caught on quickly to the situation.
As shared by FoxNews13: A Walt Disney World employee realized a Pennsylvania woman who called under the guise of buying theme park tickets was actually in need of help. The Disney employee heard the woman yelling “get off me” and “get away from me” at someone while they were on the phone together on Jan. 9 and sensed something was wrong, the York Dispatch reported.
The woman would only answer questions with a “yes” or “no” response, so the unidentified Disney employee asked if the woman was actually calling to book a trip, according to the report. The woman said, “no.” “She then asked (the woman) if she needed law enforcement to her home and she stated ‘yes,’” authorities said in court documents, according to the report.

FoxNews13 goes on to report: The Disney employee called Northern York County Regional Police in Dover, Pennsylvania, where the caller lives, and alerted authorities, according to the report. When officers arrived at the home, they found that the woman and her 38-year-old boyfriend had been arguing, according to the report. The woman told police that he’d choked her three times and slapped her. The boyfriend also threatened the woman, saying “I’ll (expletive) kill you,” police said in court records.
Police arrested the boyfriend. He’s facing a felony charge of strangulation, as well as misdemeanor counts of terroristic threats with the intention to terrorize another and simple assault, plus harassment, court records show.
