More Details About the Magic Kingdom Brawl Come To Light

Reporting on brawls and bad behavior in a Disney Park is never fun, but recently, more information has come to light about a Disney star who was involved in the Magic Kingdom brawl we reported on earlier this year.

The Walt Disney World Resort holds its own as one of the best places in the world to enjoy a Disney vacation. Whichever Theme Park you pick within the Disney Resort—Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom—every Disney Park has something unique to offer Guests with many a world-class attraction and ride that gives you the ultimate Disney experience.

But for all the magic Disney World can boast, sometimes it has less than savory stories that come from it, including this one about the brawl at Magic Kingdom back in July. The fight looked like it took place between the gift shop for Mickey’s PhilharMagic and Peter Pan’s Flight attraction involving two groups of people and was between two New Jersey families.

Twitter user @sweetisme3 shared the video from a Facebook group to the former social media platform.

One man involved in the fight was hospitalized with a facial laceration, while others suffered minor cuts and bruises. Reportedly, personal designer items and phones were damaged in the incident. The video went viral on social media and even became FOX national news. According to their reporting, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrested three people for misdemeanor battery.

Per an incident report, body cam footage, and other Orange County Sheriff records, three members of the New Jersey family were considered the aggressors – Tauheesha Richardson, Antuan Richardson, and Fuquan Grant, and were interviewed by the police.

However, per a tip received by Inside the Magic, the individual who self-identified as Fuquan Grant is allegedly actually Elijah Richardson, who recently starred in Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Hollywood Stargirl (2022) on Disney+.

In body cam footage, Fuquan Grant provided the same birthday as Elijah Richardson: September 24, 2002. What’s more, Richardson is a New Jersey native and publicly identified a Tauheesha and Antuan Richardson as his parents in a 2015 interview.

Richardson hasn’t publicly acknowledged or admitted to the fight, and no charges have been filed. The other involved family is pursuing legal options at this time. Both families involved, including some Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members, were banned from Walt Disney World Resort.
