When Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway opened at Disneyland Park this month, most Guests’ biggest issues with the immersive ride were the pricey Individual Lightning Lane and complicated virtual queue. But a recent TikTok has Disney Parks fans up in arms about a completely different aspect of the ride.

TikToker @oooof…avaa originally shared the video, which now boasts tens of thousands of likes. In it, Train Conductor Goofy speaks to Guests at the end of their adventure:

“Hey, picnickers! Told ya nothing was gonna go wrong,” he says. The ride continues as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse sing “Nothing Can Stop Us Now,” the ride’s theme song.
But the Guest and many others misheard “picnickers” as a racial slur (the N-Word). “Goofy said WHAT?!?!” the Guest wrote.
“I THOUGHT THE SAME THING,” said @josh.schools2.
“I literally jumped,” @michael_bergman wrote.
