Odd Incidents Reported at Disney World in 2019
Orlando Sentinel has just published what has to be one of our favorite Disney articles of the year and we strongly encourage you to check out the original here. The piece examines some of the more peculiar police reports filed at Walt Disney World during 2019. From a wheelchair chase to bathroom emergencies a lot happens at the theme parks.
Here are a few of the key incidents outlined in the article:
Nature Calls on Flight of Passage
One of the incidents filed with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department involves a 22 year old Peruvian woman who reported being urinated on while waiting in line for Flight of Passage.
According to reports, the woman was standing in line for the Avatar-based attraction notorious for long lines when she felt something wet on the back of her legs.
Turning around she realized that a 46 year old man from Brazil decided to urinate in the queue. The woman reportedly waited 20 minutes after the incident to report it to the nearest cast member.
According to the Sheriff’s report, the man was banned from Animal Kingdom for the rest of the day and the woman was given a change of clothes.
Space Mountain Wheelchair Chase
A Tantrum Over Turkey Legs
A disagreement over an oversized turkey leg caused a quarrel at Magic Kingdom. A woman told authorities that she had been pushed by a stranger at Magic Kingdom after she accidentally dropped pieces of meat on the ground while walking through the park She was confronted by a man in an incident reported this past October.
A Reminder To Check Those Security Settings On Your Phone
Last but not least, the Sentinel article mentions a handful of reports of guests getting AirDrop messages and other content from unknown users while at the parks. In 2019, at least two guests reported that they had been sent weird pictures while at the theme parks. In May, a group of students visiting Animal Kingdom received an image of a dog’s rear end and a little boy without a nose sent to their mobile phones.
The messages were tracked to a 19 year old from Barstow who apologized and deleted the images. In another incident a 35 year old man received Dropbox images from a stranger while waiting in line for Test Track at Epcot. He received images from “iCarly” of a male character covered in spaghetti with no shirt on. The sheriff’s department never found out who sent the images.
