We live in a wild and wacky world. Even our “safe places” aren’t that safe anymore, and yes, we mean Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Whether it’s guests breaking the rules by jumping off of bridges at EPCOT, fighting at Magic Kingdom, or excessive alcohol usage, Disney has become a bit of a circus on social media. It’s all caught and documented by content creators, a market that is growing quickly on social media. It’s a tough world out there for a Disney content creator, but sometimes, they can go a bit too far when other guests aren’t providing the content they need.
Disney Parks were created to escape the stress of everyday living. For many of us, Walt Disney World and Disneyland offer a chance to slip away into nostalgic stories from our childhood while getting in touch with our inner kid again. For this reason, it’s understandable that guests of Disney Parks would be defensive, condemning activities and behaviors that tarnish the memories and legacies that people like Walt Disney built.
With the rise of social media, many of the behaviors that guests experience within Disney Parks that are admonishable remained handled without an outside voice loudly claiming that they were ruining the overall experience. Sadly, as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and X (formerly Twitter) have become primary sources of information on Disney Parks, those same guests’ behaviors are now plastered all over social media for everyone to see.
Disney Social Media
Although Disney runs their own social media accounts, today we’re discussing actions captured by those who identify with Disney Parks but ARE NOT employed by them. Social media platforms have seen a boom in Disney content creators and influencers. Typically, these Disney Moms, Disney Dads, or Disney Fans use their voice to give guests an inside peak at food, merchandise, and other common aspects of a day at Disney.
Disney content creators use their love for Disney Parks to help guests learn the ins and outs of visiting Disneyland and Walt Disney World. The industry is booming, with a select few becoming extremely popular, garnering a decent income from hanging around Magic Kingdom or California Adventure all day, explaining to viewers how to use Genie+ or where to eat. Typically, once a large following of viewers is obtained, Disney has zero qualms with working closely with these influencers, outsourcing promotion to millions without lifting a finger.
Although some Disney content creators and influencers can get a little “too big for their britches,” typically, they’re good people who are just doing their part in trying to bring a little magic to your YouTube suggestions or timelines. However, in every bunch, there are always a few bad apples.
When Creating Content Goes Wrong
As we’ve mentioned, the world of Disney-related content creators and influencers has grown tremendously. It’s easy to find thousands of Disney-based YouTube channels, TikTok accounts, or publications while you’re searching around the internet. As the market becomes flooded, creators have to start thinking outside of the box regarding content creation that sets them apart from others.
Because of this, we’ve seen satire accounts pop up, accounts from Cast Members that show inappropriate behaviors behind the scenes of Disneyland and Walt Disney World, guests running through the park filming hip-hop videos full of suggestive and disgusting language, materials featuring YouTube personalities fishing in ponds at Disney World or breaking into locations where they aren’t supposed to be, and apparently now, even adults-only content creation at Disney!
Disney Content Creator Allegedly Makes Adult-Only Video at Disneyland
According to Inside the Magic, recently, the internet reacted to a TikTok video by user @niivuh. The video, which has garnered millions of views, explains a situation in which a guest to Disneyland makes Only Fans content within the park.
We’ll spare you the details, as you can read them for yourselves, but apparently, a TikTok video shows a content creator who sneaks in inappropriate, sexually oriented items and uses them in the park. The referenced TikTok video by user @niivuh questions the behavior, and rightfully so, as it is undoubtedly deemed inappropriate not only by Disney standards but also by state laws.
“I just saw a TikTok of a girl making a… OF type of video at Disneyland and the comments was [just] a ton of girls hyping her up,” the TikToker wrote. “As a female, get your bag girl. But at Disneyland? At a children’s place? Is this not extremely messed up???” – says the poster.
She continued, ““This is where kids go to be kids??” she added. “Why is this normalized??? Is this not borderline [pedophilia]????? Am I the ONLY one who sees an issue with making that sort of content in a setting made for little children???”
Fans Agree, the Behavior Has No Place at Disney
It isn’t easy to wrap your mind around why someone would think this type of behavior is okay. If the poster accurately depicts what took place, it could be that pressures for likes and views in a world of Disney content that is extremely flooded have led to the decision to make illegal and inappropriate videos to garner attention. No matter the reasoning, it’s incredibly disheartening that someone would go this far in social media views.
Thousands of commentators on the TikTok post felt the same, disapproving of the behavior and attesting to its seriousness.
“No, you’re not alone. It’s not just at kid’s places (even tho those are terrible). It’s like..the people around you didn’t consent to being involved.” said one commenter.
We can only hope that whoever is involved, if this TikTok video is true, will come to their senses and find a different way to set themselves apart in the flooded world of Disney content creators, before something more serious happens.
