After an unfortunate incident, Disney has taken action against Guests trespassing and breaking Park rules.
Disney Parks worldwide are known to be the happiest and most magical places on earth, with beloved characters interacting with Guests, timeless classic attractions, innovative new experiences, world-class entertainment offerings, and so much more! With so much to see and do, it’s no wonder Disney Parks are a favorite destination for an unforgettable family-friendly experience.
To maintain this family-friendly environment and ensure the safety and enjoyment of all Guests visiting the Parks, Disney sets out several rules and regulations Guests are expected to comply with during their visit. Cast Members are also trained to ensure that these rules are enforced at the Park to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all Guests.
However, an unfortunate incident in June 2022 caused Disneyland Paris to take action against Guests trying to trespass into restricted areas of the Park and break the rules set out by the Parisian Park.
For those unfamiliar with the incident, back in June, a couple trespassed onto a restricted stage in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Paris, trying to have a memorable marriage proposal. However, a Cast Member rushed to take the ring from the couple, interrupting the moment and escorting them off the stage.
While the Guest claimed that he had received permission to climb onto the stage, that area is restricted to all Guests, as several pieces of equipment can be damaged by Guests and even be dangerous to them, including fireworks and other fire hazards. You can read more about this story here.
After the polemic incident that divided the internet, Disney officials apologized to the couple. However, some images recently surfaced of the actions Disneyland Paris has taken to prevent a similar incident.

Because it’s sad to have to come to this

And when Raphael did his job, he was the villain and not the selfish guest
While it is unfortunate to see these additional restrictive measures being implemented at the Park, Guests must remember that Disneyland Paris decided to take these actions to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all Guests visiting the Parisian Park.
