Drunk Guests Disrupt ‘Space Mountain’ Ride


It is no secret that Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, and even Disneyland Paris Resort Guests have been misbehaving on such an unprecedented level that there is actually a documentary being made about the unpleasant phenomenon.

Therefore, it will also be no surprise to Disney fans to learn that misbehaving Disney Park Guests have caused problems and dampened the already-struggling Disney magic once again!

Alcohol can obviously make troublesome Disney Guests even more disruptive — leading to fights like this one, in some cases — and this has been the case once again at Space Mountain in Tomorrowland within Disneyland Resort.

In an online discussion about Disney Guests’ bad behavior on the website called Reddit, which was about Guests’ behavior reaching an “all time low”, one Disney Guest described a particularly upsetting experience that put a damper on their Disney day.

“A group of drunken people were in front of me on Space Mountain and had their phone flashlights on and shining on the track and surrounding area,” the Disney fan wrote. “That ride is no fun when you can see where you’re going.”

We already knew from seeing glimpses of the interior of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind that the inside of roller coasters certainly leaves something to be desired when the lights are on, so being forcibly shown the inner workings of a Disney roller coaster (especially  when there is not a ride breakdown or malfunction going on) adds insult to injury.

In recent months, we have seen Disney making several changes to its alcoholic beverage offerings, and many Disney fans have theorized that the decrease in alcoholic offerings is an intentional effort to decrease the amount of drunk Guests that are permeating the Disney Parks and doing everything from fist-fighting to harassing Cast Members or performers.
