An EPCOT Guest became belligerent after pre-established drunken behavior apparently earned special attention from both Disney Security and Police.
Her story was documented and shared via TikTok videos by Adriana Perez (@corasmomster) in a four-part series.
In the first video, Perez explains, “On our way out of Epcot, we encountered a little situation,” and we see a woman being held up by her husband saying incoherent things to a police officer. The only intentional moves she appears to muster are ones that move her aggressively toward the officer, and we can hear her scream, “I’ve done nothing wrong.”
The woman’s husband appears more than willing to cooperate with the officers, trying to keep her out of reach of the officer and move her into a wheelchair. Disney World Security tries to keep Guests moving, but a crowd still forms around the scene.
Later, more of who appear to be Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies are waiting for her outside the Park Gates. She somehow got out of her wheelchair and started screaming for help, convinced that the cops were going to beat her up.
Getting her back in the chair, the group was able to get closer to the parking lot as she held up a middle finger to the cops behind her. Still not satisfied, she jumped up towards another cop, and her husband had to wrestle her to the ground.
This lady had all these cops plus more waiting outside the park 👀 I’m still trying to figure out why it escalated to this?! Anyone who was there and knows, please elaborate. I’m genuinely curious. #fypシ #epcot #viral #cops #drunkatepcot #foodandwinefestival2022
“There was a lady who was drunk being asked to leave, and I’m assuming she was not happy about that,” Perez explained later. “So she started being really belligerent towards the cops. She started trying to slap them, punch them. She was saying, ‘F**k you.’ She was saying, ‘You have every right to take me to jail. I’m not going anywhere. Take me to jail. I want to go to jail.’”
It is unclear at this time if the woman was arrested or if the officers simply left the clearly-disturbed and drunken woman in the custody of her partner. It is also unclear if she will face any trespassing charges from The Walt Disney World Resort for her behavior.
The EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival is a fun and magical way for drinking-aged Guests to have a culinary adventure around the world. However, Walt Disney World remains a family-friendly environment and requires that all Guests maintain appropriate behavior.
Disney World states on its website,
Please show common courtesy to fellow Guests and our Cast Members by not using profanity or engaging in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior, jumping lines or saving places in lines for others. For your safety and the safety of others, please refrain from running except in designated areas.
We at Disney Fanatic will continue to update our readers on Disney Parks news and stories as more developments come to light.
