Disney World Guest Courtney Randall filed a lawsuit on November 4 in Orange County Circuit Court against Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts for negligence. According to the complaint, in September 2019, Randall and her family were staying at an unnamed Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

Specifically, on September 9, 2018, Randall noticed that one of the electrical outlets in their room did not work and they “protruded out of the wall”, according to the lawsuit. She notified Disney and was assured that a Cast Member would come to their hotel room the same day to check out the issue.

The lawsuit states that Randall assumed the issue was addressed while her and her family were at the theme park that day, and so on September 10, 2018, she attempted to use the electrical outlet, but she was electrocuted.

Randall is filing the lawsuit as she says the electrocution caused suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, the expense of medical care and loss of future earning capacity.

This is not the first lawsuit against Disney within the past year. Recently, The Walt Disney Company issued a formal statement regarding a $20 million lawsuit filed by a Vermont family who claims their daughter was sexually assaulted by another child onboard a Disney Cruise Line ship.

And in July 2021, The Walt Disney Company faced a legal battle over a lawsuit connecting to the shutdown costs relating to the pandemic.
