It’s not-so-magical news from the Magic Kingdom: a Guest assaulted a Cast Member, and the video of this interaction and the former’s consequent arrest has surfaced.

While we usually love to report on stories of the magic that encapsulates Walt Disney World and share tips, tricks, and hidden gems in the Disney Resort, today, we have a less-than-magical story to report. Walt Disney World Resort is undoubtedly a place to fulfill your dreams and fantasies, but it has also been a place of some unfortunate incidents.

Recently one more account of an altercation between a Guest and a Cast Member where the former attacked and assaulted the latter has come to light. Although the incident is older, it’s a shocking story nonetheless.

Per the narration in the video, it becomes evident the incident happened in December 2021. A Cast Member reportedly asked a man, a Guest, to put on a mask. The Guest was angered by this and reportedly lunged at the Disney employee and struck her on the shoulder.

Check out the whole story:

Unfortunately, the story doesn’t end there. Disney security was alerted and came to the scene and alerted the local authorities. The man was spotted on Main Street, U.S.A., and was apprehended and detained by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. The OP posted a follow-up video, adding more context.

You can see that video down below:

This is unfortunately not the first time an altercation like this or incident like this has happened at the Disney Park. We have previously reported on the massive brawl that broke out in the Magic Kingdom and later reported on the same incident when further information came to light about the instigator.

In the video, law enforcement shares that if the Guest had cooperated downstairs, this situation would likely not have come to pass. It’s important to remember to treat all Disney employees and Disney Cast Members with respect and be courteous of and cordial to fellow Guests and CMs at the Parks. This kind of behavior is unacceptable, and Disney has even gone so far as to address it with recent announcements.

We at Disney Fanatic will continue to report on all Walt Disney World news.
