Magic Kingdom Thief Stole Guest’s Backpack, Threw Driver’s License in the Toilet, and Ordered Uber Eats

At the Most Magical Place on Earth, a thief stole a woman’s belongings, threw her driver’s license in the toilet and then tried to ring up UberEats on her credit card, according to a new sheriff’s report.

The Magic Kingdom theft happened March 14,  but it took the Orange County Sheriff’s Office several months to release the incident report for WDWNT to find out about it.

The 31-year-old Florida resident was watching the fireworks when she left her stroller unattended at the New Fantasyland stroller parking area.

After the fireworks, the woman and her family realized the stroller was gone around 11 p.m.. They reported the theft to Disney Security.

Later, they found the abandoned stroller near Cinderella Castle.

Disney kept looking for her backpack which was still missing.

The woman’s “backpack was later discovered in one of the male bathrooms within the park by a Disney cast member. (The woman) stated that her backpack was found opened and left emptied out,” the sheriff’s report said. “All of the contents of the backpack were scattered all over the floor in the male’s bathroom. (The woman) also stated that her driver’s license was found in the toilet of one of the stalls in the male’s bathroom.”

She calculated what was stolen — four bank cards, her social security card, $25 in cash and a Disney gift card with $35 left on the balance. 

And to add insult to injury, the woman said she got bank alerts that someone was trying to buy $43 worth of items from Uber Eats at 12:04 a.m., about an hour after the theft.

The thief attempted to make four other Uber Eats orders that all got declined. 

“The fraud department also advised that two attempts for purchase were made at a vending machine within Magic Kingdom,” the incident report said. “One of the transactions was labeled ‘Canteen Vending 840’ for $5.”’

The deputy investigating the theft had an idea.

“I asked Disney security if they had any way of locating a specific vending machine by using specific numbers, considering the transaction label which was given by the bank ending in 840, and they stated that they would have to contact the vendors of the vending machine,” the incident report said.

As of this week, no one has been arrested, according to the sheriff’s office.
