Altercation breaks out at EPCOT between couple; Cast Member attempts to diffuse the situation, only adding to the tension

Believe it or not, sometimes EPCOT is referred to as the “boring” park at the Walt Disney World Resort. To some, many areas of the park seem a bit dated, and others feel like it’s the park to skip if they only have a three-day trip planned.

On the contrary, however, EPCOT has been undergoing a major overhaul recently, and the end results are sure to have EPCOT described as anything but boring. However, while we await the exciting changes at EPCOT to be completed, a few Guests have made sure to keep things interesting at Disney World’s second park, as seen in this video, posted by @frafraaaa999, which shows a couple in a verbal altercation at EPCOT while a Cast Member nervously looks on and attempts to diffuse the situation.

A young male Guest and young female Guest are seen standing in a main thoroughfare at EPCOT, having a heated “discussion” at best and possibly an all-out verbal altercation at worst. The young female Guest has her arms crossed, and the young man shakes his head at her as the video goes on.

A Cast Member stands with the couple and appears to be attempting to bring a sense of calm to the scenario. But in the very next video, also posted by @frafraaaa999, it’s evident that his attempts weren’t quite working.

In the second video, tensions are still high, but much of the interaction in this video involves the Cast Member as well. It’s difficult to understand what is being said for the majority of the video, but at one point, it’s clear that the young male Guest asks the Cast Member, “you think I’m a gangster?” The young female Guest is much more verbal in this video as well. Again, the Cast Member continues to attempt to bring the rising tension down a few notches, but to no avail.

The poster of the video had to lower her camera at one point because she felt that the couple “was on to her.”

It’s clear that the couple didn’t have an all-out fight at EPCOT, but the verbal altercation was enough that other Guests commented on these videos on TikTok, saying they were in the park on the day of the altercation and even witnessed the couple arguing, several asking what the outcome was.

We aren’t sure what began the altercation, what resolved it, or if it was resolved. The positive side of this scenario is that a huge fight didn’t ensue, and no one was hurt. Here’s hoping the couple was able to reconcile their differences and have a better day in the park.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
