This is truly a shocking and horrific turn of events.

Walt Disney World Resort is supposed to be a magical and wholesome place for Guests of all ages. Unfortunately, all it takes is one lousy Guest to ruin the experience for everyone.

An unfortunate incident took place at EPCOT when a Guest assaulted a Cast Member on Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is a popular attraction based on the hit Disney-Pixar film. It allows Guests to shrink down to the size of a rat and embark on a thrilling adventure through the sights, sounds, and smells of Gusteau’s restaurant in Paris. On this day, a ride breakdown on Remy’s ride ended up resulting in a massive fight between a Guest and a ride worker.

EPCOT Cast Member Assaulted by Guest

On May 30, 2021, Seth Griffin Davis was spending a day at EPCOT. According to witnesses, Davis was waiting in line to ride Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure when the line stopped moving. Davis was then seen approaching a Cast Member to ask what had happened to the ride. The Cast Member informed him that the ride was experiencing technical issues and that Davis would not be able to go back in line for the attraction at this time.

This news made Davis irate, and he began having a heated argument with the Cast Member. At this time, the Cast Member went to go get his supervisor to help with the situation.

Cast Member Sent to the Hospital for Injuries

After the supervisor arrived, Davis began fighting with her as well. The supervisor attempted to aid the situation by adding Davis and his family to the lightning lane for the ride when it reopened, but the iPad could not scan their tickets. This escalated to Davis slapping the iPad out of the supervisor’s hand, causing an injury to her left wrist and ribcage. The supervisor was sent to the hospital for her injuries.

The police responded to the scene at the Disney Park, where they arrested Davis and transported him to the Orange County Jail.

This situation is very disturbing to hear. At this time, Davis has pleaded not guilty to this crime.
