While magical, a vacation at any of the Disney Parks and Resorts can be stressful and hectic. Due to how many rides, attractions, and other things there is to do, Guests have a lot of pressure to make the most of their very expensive day at Disney. If there is anything guaranteed when at Disney, it’s the long lines you will for sure be waiting in, which only adds to the stress.

Waiting in line is just a part of the trip to Disney and is usually a quite boring and uneventful experience for most. However, sometimes people can reach their breaking point while waiting, which can cause arguments or even fights to break out.

Corey Krause, a Guest who is part of a Disney fan group shared their story to us about being assaulted while waiting in line at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World, check out the full story below:

So today was a rough start at Hollywood Studios. Around 9:05 AM my wife, my one year old daughter and myself were patiently waiting in line to get in the park. Unfortunately there’s always some sort of line chaos but everyone 99% of the time just sorted out. However, we were approached by another gentleman and he asked us if we were apart of a party that was in front of us. I told him no. He then proceeded to tell my wife and I “back of the line buddy.” So my response was “excuse me sir.” He proceeded to get violent and try to fight me in line while I was holding my one year old in my arms in front of hundreds of people in line. He eventually was pulled away by his wife who apologized for his actions but this incident was reported. This behavior from an adult should not be allowed in a family safe and fun park. The end result is this man is being removed from the park once found cause Disney has 0 tolerance of this type of behavior. Other than that, it’s a beautiful day to be at Disney!!!

As you can read, the Guest claims they were verbally and physically threatened by the other supposed line-cutting Guest. Eventually, the Guest was removed from the Walt Disney World Park as is protocol for this type of behavior. Disney is very strict about rude and dangerous behavior and does not tolerate it.

Just yesterday, we reported on a rule infringement that multiple Guests engaged in. Two Guests were caught by Disney security while chugging a Truly alcoholic beverage on property, just before entering security for EPCOT. Of course, the Guests were given a stern talking to and had the drinks removed as personal alcoholic beverages can only be consumed in your Disney Resort room. We have also seen Guests be kicked out of Disney World for sharing backstage footage and ruining the magic, promoting unsafe activities, using excessive vulgar language, and for attempting to steal.

We made a whole list of things that will get you kicked out of the Disney Parks which you can check out here.
