Sometimes it’s not just the character interactions that can make for unique experiences at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.

A resurfaced video from a character meet-and-greet with Baloo and King Louie of The Jungle Book (1967) at Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort went south when a rather large rat made it’s way straight through the meet-and-greet and had Guests running and dancing to avoid it.

TikTok user @disney_stuffbackup posted the resurfaced video.

As seen in the video, even the characters and Cast Members hilariously had a mini heart attack.

Speaking of rats that are supposed to be in the Disney Parks, Remy Ratatouille Adventure recently opened this last fall at EPCOT.

Disney’s official description of the ride reads:

A Recipe for Excitement

In this 4D ride experience, join Chef Remy on a daring culinary caper that will captivate all your senses as you zip, dash and scurry through the bustling kitchen, dining room and walls of Gusteau’s famous Paris restaurant. C’est magnifique!

How to Experience Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is available via virtual queue or individual Lightning Lane purchase. A standby queue is not available. The virtual queue is limited and subject to availability. Each Guest can enter the virtual queue no more than once per day.

Disney brought back distanced character interactions earlier last year and Guests have had the opportunity to meet with characters in select destinations throughout the Parks.
