Vloggers With COVID-19 Reportedly Visit Disneyland, Hundreds Sign Petition For Disney to Stop Them

According to Reddit user diskneelvr, some Disney influencers sick with COVID-19 were planning on visiting Disneyland today to ride Pirates of the Caribbean after it reopened. Diskneelvr shared a screenshot of the sick vloggers, seemingly from a video.

The influencers are Katie Slockbower and Spencer Emmons of “Best Life and Beyond.” A Change.org petition calls for “Disney [to] remove Best Life and Beyond from being able to Video in your Parks.”

According to the petition, Slockbower in particular “continues to break park rules and harass and attack park goers while recording her vlog posts at the park.”

The petition references Slockbower mocking a disabled guest riding a scooter in one of her videos. It also mentions Slockbower, who is white, attacking an African American family, including children, on the Mark Twain riverboat.

Reddit users also referenced Slockbower claiming another guest assaulted her after she was “coughed on.” Reddit user winnmab describes that video, which has since been taken down:

“Basically she was hawking some merch on the Columbia during a live stream and kept showing the other guests. This gentleman cleared his throat and said, “don’t give these grifters any money” when she walked by. She had him interrogated and thrown out of Disneyland with his kid claiming he assaulted her.”

The man got the video removed because she showed his child’s face without his permission.

Reddit user No_Point_6996 describes an encounter with the influencers:

“I got stuck behind them last year on the Fourth of July at the plaza inn. They were at the front of the line and wouldn’t let anyone else get their food because they kept reshooting saying happy Fourth of July multiple times. If you go back and watch the video from them on last Fourth of July when they’re at the plaza inn I’m literally right behind them. I’m not on camera but I was starving and they wouldn’t move away from the counter where you get chicken and pasta.”

“She has a history of making false claims against guests at the park,” the petition, created by Stephanie Fox, reads. “She uses staff and security at the park as a weapon and constantly video’s about how she will use them against park goers.”

Fox also references Slockbower selling and promoting her products, even asking for money in the parks.

“Her attitude and actions [go] directly against the values and magic of Disney and they need to be stopped for creating videos inside the park that are meant to intimidate guests and promote selling of their personal merchandise,” Fox writes.

We don’t yet know if the couple did visit Disneyland today. Pirates of the Caribbean is currently closed after several breakdowns this morning.

  1. I cannot stand these two people! They posted a video today and Spencer was there for the opening. He mentioned in an earlier video that they also have reservations tonight for Blue Bayou. Katie will most likely be there since she NEVER misses a meal and Spence loves those BB Hurricanes.
    These people are lying, cheating grifters and should be banned from the parks!

      1. Disney Parks has no mask mandate. This petition is useless and stupid. There are scores of people in public places no longer wearing masks, despite the ongoing pandemic. Including my office building. It’s on Disney if guests with Covid and no masks are entering the parks. Like I said, there is no mask mandate and no one can really prove if Spencer or any other influencer has Covid. This is pointless and this publication is feeding a feud that needs to die.

  2. I know that people say thar Chapek is against what Disney is but if you want a real example of that then here yoy go. Those two influencers who belive that they are in charge here.

  3. I saw clips of their video from last Wednesday night, and both saying they’d be going Friday. She admitted to vomiting, coughing, sore throat and felt like she was dying. She coughed over a dozen times and he sounded congested. Only he went on Friday, met up with David from Fresh Baked, who had tweeted out that he disagreed with these 2 going. David now has a sore throat and runny nose, per his tweet yesterday. This is why this pandemic will not end. You want to go maskless, travel, get in huge packed lines with children and their grandparents – well then you have to stay home if you’re sick and contagious. If you’re still blowing your nose and mucus is coming out, then you are contagious. This carelessness for this 60 year old -ish man to what looked like shoving his way to the front of the line, in front of children is just a very bad look. Catching a few minutes of his video, you can tell he’s sick. Oh well, too bad David.
