“Keep your hands, arms, feet, and legs inside the ride vehicle,” is a phrase many Guests visiting Disney Parks are very familiar with. Recently at Disneyland Park, however, a Guest did manage to take their bare foot outside of a boat on “it’s a small world,” for a quick dip in the water, and the original poster is now the recipient of backlash from Disney Guests in the comments section.

It seems the original poster meant the video as a joke given the caption of “coolin the dogs off,” but many of the commenters on the video are simply not having it causing a stream of backlash on the TikToker’s account.

Comments on the video range from pure shock, with replies like “are you SERIOUS,” from @fatmahswrld, to words of caution like, “I’ve been in the security rooms, there’s literally like forty cameras on each ride. Security for sure saw this ?” from @billthomas31.

Other viewers took more serious takes in their responses to the video pointing out that putting your foot (or arm, hand, or anything else really) outside of any ride vehicle is dangerous, with some commenters pointing out the incident on Pirates of the Caribbean at Walt Disney World where a Guest suffered a serious finger injury after running their finger along the bottom of the boat while it was moving.

As for “it’s a small world,” this is far from the first time that a video has surfaced of a Guest touching the water outside of their boat. Earlier this year, a Guest was caught on camera placing their hand beneath a boat on “it’s a small world,” an incident that thankfully ended without injury but caused a similar backlash in the comments.

While this video was taken and posted as a joke, we do feel compelled to share the reminder that Disney’s official policy is that hands, arms, feet, and legs should remain in each and every ride vehicle for your own safety. No further details were shared with this video detailing any possible consequences for this Guest, but in addition for the potential safety hazards, Disney reserves the right to remove Guests who do not follow park rules so it definitely isn’t worth it to take the chance by breaking them.
