Guest Violates Disney Rules During ‘Sword in the Stone’ Challenge

Disney Guests have been breaking rules left and right lately in Disney Parks at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, whether they have been fist-fighting or yelling at Cast Members, and now another Walt Disney World Resort Guest has flagrantly broken a Disney regulation. Ironically, this recent misbehavior (which involved the Sword in the Stone in the Magic Kingdom) was captured in a video by TikToker JoJo Crichton, who has become known for his own attempts to acquire the Sword in the Stone that’s found in Walt Disney World Resort!

“I hype other people up [too] while I wait [my turn]”, JoJo Crichton wrote in the video’s caption (whch is shown below). The video shows another Disney Guest climbing onto the Sword in the Stone attraction, which can be found near Prince Charming’s Regal Carrousel within the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort.

Like its Disneyland counterpart near the King Arthur Carrousel, the Sword in the Stone attraction is based on the 1938 T.H. White book about the sword in the stone from the Arthurian legends about King Arthur — and, of course, the 1963 Disney movie The Sword in the Stone, which was inspired by King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table as well. In this Disney Park version of the tale, whoever removes the sword from the stone will become the King of Fantasyland.

JoJo Crichton’s attempts to retrieve the sword have been comical and lighthearted ones (such as the one in the video shown above), but this new video shows another Disney Guest trying to pull the sword from the stone while being literally on top of the Disney attraction. Climbing on Disney attractions is a common misdemeanor among Disney Guests (particularly in Disneyland Paris at the moment), so even though JoJo Crichton calls the other Guest’s approach a “good strategy”, it is not actually a permitted strategy.

JoJo Crichton did put his foot on the sword’s stone, but the TikToker did not climb directly onto the sword’s hilt like the other Disney visitor did. Have you seen anyone go to extreme lengths and break Disney rules in an attempt to pull the sword from the stone in the Magic Kingdom and become the King of Fantasyland?
