Trespasser at Disney World

A guest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas recently went on the r/WaltDisneyWorld subreddit to ask for more information on an incident at Jambo House. The resort patron explained that they witnessed five sheriff cars and a security car sitting outside the resort as they returned for the evening. Apparently, a manager was talking to the police officers.

Sorry if this isn’t the right place, and if it isn’t I can remove it. But we were coming back to the resort and there were five sheriff cars and a security car sitting outside the resort, and a manager was talking to one of the officers. Obviously the cast members wouldn’t say what was going on, but does anyone know what might have happened? We heard some strange noises back to our room too…

The guest could not get any information from the resort cast members and was curious about what occurred on the property. Thankfully, Reddit commenters were happy to give whatever insight they could find. According to the Orange County Sherriff’s Office dispatch, the incident surrounded a “trespasser” on the property.

To be fair, other responses indicated that any incident involving someone on a Disney resort property can be flagged as trespassing, even if they are a guest at the resort. The full extent of what occurred is unknown, but it most likely involved someone who needed to be escorted off Animal Kingdom Villas property.

Disney Fanatic will keep you updated on any new developments involving this story. Walt Disney World takes trespassing incidents very seriously. Hopefully, nothing too drastic occurred.
