The Walt Disney World Resort is famous for a lot of things. The first thing that comes to most guests’ minds is the incredible theme parks found here. Magic Kingdom is the original and most popular, bringing in millions of guests each year. Magic Kingdom is so popular that it consistently ranks as the most-visited theme park destination on Earth.

EPCOT is the most unique theme park experience offered at Walt Disney World, giving guests the chance to experience exhilarating rides and attractions as well as learn more about different countries, cultures, and continents thanks to World Showcase.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has the best selection of thrill rides, featuring adrenaline-pumping experiences like The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a beast of a park featuring Walt Disney Imagineering’s most immersive and captivating land yet: Pandora – The World of Avatar.

Each one of these four parks is incredible and is worth spending one, two, or even three days during your vacation. However, time is limited, meaning guests often have to make difficult choices. Time is more valuable than money inside the Disney parks and resorts, which is why it’s crucial that guests act accordingly. Walt Disney World lays out a very rigid set of rules it expects all guests to follow, as this not only helps maintain the family-friendly atmosphere of the parks but also ensures that guests and cast members are safe. We’ve even compiled a list of everything that will get you kicked out of Disney, which you can take a look at here.

Unfortunately, as we’ve covered many, many times here at Inside the Magic, not all guests abide by these rules, causing quite a scene.

From fistfights in Magic Kingdom to undercover sting operations, we’ve seen it all when it comes to the Walt Disney World Resort. However, what occurred recently truly takes the cake and has left us speechless.

Recently, a guest, presumably a man, leaped off of a bridge at World Showcase at EPCOT. There are several bridges and walkways that carry guests over different waterways and canals, some of which actually feature water taxis traveling through them. EPCOT features an actual drawbridge as well.

The video starts and shows a man on the outside portion of one of these bridges. He would have had to climb over metal railings to get to this spot. The man hesitates for a moment until he eventually decides to leap.

This incident was shared earlier today on TikTok. You can take a look at the entire video down below:

The video ends with the man jumping into the water, but we don’t have to think hard about what probably happened shortly after. Any type of unruly behavior is grounds for removal from the resort.

A close-up video was also shared on @disfamilyadventures:

An offense like this may have landed the guest in Walt Disney World jail, with a total ban from the resort rather likely.

What do you think of this video?
