An irate Disneyland Resort guest picked a fight with a Disney cast member last week because his child was too short for a ride. Another guest caught the incident on video.

The latest Disney fight comes just one week after a brawl broke out in Fantasyland at Disneyland Park. Two families fistfought, allegedly because one party wouldn’t move out of the other’s way.

Disneyland Resort enacted a “courtesy” policy late last year, hoping to curb increasingly violent incidents at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. But little has changed.

“Please show common courtesy to fellow Guests and our Cast Members by not using profanity or engaging in unsafe, illegal, disruptive, or offensive behavior, jumping lines or saving places in lines for others,” the updated rule reads. “For your safety and the safety of others, please refrain from running except in designated areas.”

Last week, TikToker @saradubyou shared this video of a man arguing with a Disneyland Park cast member after his child was too short for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, which has a 40” height requirement.

“Nothing kills your vibe more than being directly behind an individual complaining and making a scene in [the] happiest place on Earth,” the TikToker wrote.

In the video, a man argued with a Disney cast member who identified herself as a manager. It appears that the man’s daughter was at first permitted to enter the ride safely but failed the second height requirement check.

“They have like five seconds to check her height up front,” the manager explained. “If they say no…”

“They had 30 seconds,” the man argued. “All the other cast members have gotten involved, and they say, ‘Okay, stand up for me. Stand up straight, make sure you’re not on your tippy toes. Oh, yeah, she’s good.’”

The man argued that the Disney cast members who denied his child entry barely looked at her.

“Were you filming my cast members, though?” the manager asked.

“Absolutely,” he responded.

“I’m not going to accept you filming my cast members,” she replied. “They don’t deserve that.”

“No, absolutely not,” the man argued. “I’m here, and I paid to be here.”

“I will call security,” the manager said before the video ended.

In the comments, the TikToker explained that the family ultimately made it onto the ride.

“So what happened?” @kellz222 asked. “Did he get his way?”

“He unfortunately did because the manager rechecked and it was determined the child wasn’t standing straight and she had her feet too far apart,” the TikToker replied.
