Walt Disney World Cast Member Fired After Sneaking Into Wedding Pavilion and Drinking Out of Disney Springs Fountains in Viral TikTok Videos

Cast Member Jete (@showmelovejete) shared that he was fired from Walt Disney World after a series of TikToks he posted around the resort went viral.

The first viral TikTok followed Jete as he walked around Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. He entered the wedding pavilion unaccompanied, pointing out that “they just leave the this wide open,” exposing a potential security concern. This video amassed over 3 million views.

The second TikTok to go viral showed Jete drinking water around Disney Springs, including out of actual water fountains. The number of views on this video jumped to over 6 million.

Jete expressed in a more personal TikTok that he would’ve taken the videos down if Disney would’ve asked instead of being fired, but it seems as though damage has already been done thanks to his large social media following. You can watch this video below:

Is it trespassing when it’s unlocked and empty? We’re there signs? I don’t know the backstory, if there is one, but this young man appears to love WDW. Far worse things have happened. (For instance, Was anyone fired for allowing an environment that resulted in a child being killed by an alligator?)

Hey I left my front door unlocked. Is it trespassing if I didn’t leave any signs saying no trespassing?

No one “allowed” that poor child to be dragged away and killed by an alligator and the family was informed they could sue for lack of signage around the resort and its lake access but they chose not too. This very sad very tragic event is not a good comparison in the least to what this dummy did on WDW property! Another guest and famous you tuber was banned for life after he did thus only to be allowed back in after a few years of being banned. He knew as a CM what was and wasn’t allowed and he… Read more »

Yes. While thousands of us employees wait for a return to work call, this guy knowingly flaunts the rules for some TikTok views. He deserved to be fired and arrested for trespassing.

No, he should not have been fired. Should have been written up, maybe suspended from work for a day or two for entering wedding pavilion if it is off limits, as for drinking water across Disney Springs, I see nothing wrong with pointing out the obvious there are not enough water fountains in Disney Springs. However on the flip side he being an employee of the Walt Disney Company, you never ever say a negative thing on a public page against your employer ( no matter what Company you work for ) it will get you fired.

First sentence you said that he should Not have been fired. Last sentence you said anyone who badmouths their employer should be fired. Make Up your mind, gurrl

Your statement seems to be a non-sequitur in this situation. You state it’s OK to do something wrong only if you are smart enough not to get caught. This kid was not devious enough to hide his mistake; he owned it -that alone is worthy of sympathy. Yes, he should have been more aware of the literal constrictions of his contractual agreement.
“To err is human…” Though I am far from “divine,” I’d choose forgiveness -with a warning- for this type of youthful indiscretion that did not harm anyone besides himself.

This did not seem like a mistake. It was very much on purpose. Did not make sense but was on purpose.

Absolutely deserved to be canned. Also hope he has so support from more intelligent people who care about him. Drinking chemically treated fountain water? Why?

If I learned anything by visiting sites like WDWNT it’s this. Disney doesn’t care for ANYONE bringing any kind of negative publicity of any kind. I’ve heard elsewhere like SomefishTV that they were dropped as Disney promoting influencer, just because they said ToyStory Land was too hot. Disney corporate follows all social media for both positive and negative news.

Why is this being written as if it’s up for debate? He even has videos stating he’s signed NDAs as a cast member and then continues to divulge private company information and tell “stories” of totally inappropriate cast behavior. He 100% should have been fired a long time ago

Considering how strict the rules for cast members are, I don’t see how he expected this to result in anything BUT his termination.

No! I agree he should have been given a warning! There are cast members abusing the Covid call-off policy and not getting terminated. That is worse than what he did!

Yes he deserved it. He should have realized that Disney would not appreciate him showing possible security issues to the world.

If these are “security issues,” apparently Disney did not see them as such or chose not to address them. Perhaps he inadvertently did the WDW lawyers a favor by pointing them out before anyone could sue. Don’t blame the messenger.

Well deserved. Another adult with no concept of consequences. Saying he would have removed the posts rather than be fired is like a robber pleading to return the stolen goods to avoid jail.

Where was someone legally punished by the government for exercising their right to free speech? Please explain how you believe Glen thinking the firing is well deserved is them trying to say “free speech is a crime.”

It is when you sign papers to work saying you won’t do stuff like this. He already knew the consequences as a cast member is required to sign to accept the job.
