Instagram user foosgonedisney recently shared footage of guests disembarking “it’s a small world” at Magic Kingdom without Cast Member authorization or supervision.
Disembarking “it’s a small world”
The video appears to show a family getting out of their boat in the Polynesian section of “it’s a small world,” as a small child starts wading in the water, followed by another older child, while what may be the parent follows suit not far behind.
The full video can be viewed here. Original audio has been replaced with a song in the post, with which listener’s discretion is advised.
Guest Incidents at Disney Parks
More and more guest incidents have been shared online in the past few years. The apparent increase in rule-breaking even led to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort adding “courtesy” sections to their websites. The Walt Disney World message reads:
Be the magic you want to see in the world. You must always remember to treat others with respect, kindness and compassion. Those who can’t live up to this simple wish may be asked to leave Walt Disney World Resort.
At Disneyland Resort, a prohibited drone flew over Frontierland, a guest jumped onto a Lunar New Year cavalcade float, and another guest brought a sparkling firework into Disneyland for photos. Most recently, a guest who snuck into the park hid at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad to avoid arrest.
There have been several recent EPCOT incidents. A guest shared a photo flashing her breasts in the park, multiple guests lounged in a France Pavilion fountain, a possibly inebriated person climbed out of her Gran Fiesta Tour boat to escape the ride, yet another individual jumped out of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind during a temporary stop, and a guest slapped an iPad out of a Cast Member’s hands and sent them to the hospital after Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure shut down.
At Shanghai Disneyland, a guest was banned after refusing to stop smoking, berating a Cast Member, and then apparently collapsing on the street, forcing the cancellation of the “Mickey’s Storybook Express.”
Wading in water also isn’t new to “it’s a small world” at Magic Kingdom this year. Returning to Disneyland Park, a guest with a baby decided to disembark Pirates of the Caribbean instead of waiting for Cast Member assistance and guidance.
Even Tokyo Disneyland saw a guest removed after they laid down in the parade route.
