There’s trouble at the Most Magical Place on Earth again. Over $20,000 in attraction parts from such classic attractions as Peter Pan’s Flight and Space Mountain have been reportedly stolen after a burglary took place at Walt Disney World, according to a piece by the Orlando Sentinel.
A new law enforcement report notes that the pieces went missing from a storage shed located behind Test Track in Epcot. A Cast Member (listed as a “materials attendant”) noticed a set of sails from Peter Pan’s Flight missing during inventory counts, and later found that “a shell” and three ride vehicle seats from Space Mountain had also disappeared.
The report was filed with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office on October 2nd, a day after the items were found missing. According to the Sheriff, these items were not tagged, nor did they have serial codes or any unique markings. The storage shed, however, is surrounded by fencing, and was padlocked.
Disney declined to comment on the case of grand theft and burglary that has occurred on property, but this is far from the first incident to take place in recent history.
Just this past May, a former Walt Disney World Cast Member was arrested after entering a restricted area in Disney and stealing (and subsequently reselling) over $7,000 in items from The Haunted Mansion. His arrest warrant also detailed facts behind the missing Buzzy animatronic that was stolen back in December, as well as the animatronic’s missing clothes, which were sold off for $8,000.
