Uhh… this is certainly interesting.
One thing is true: Disney sure does attract a variety of people. Many people say that there is something for every kind of Guest at the Disney Parks and Resorts, and for this reason, every kind of person can be found on Disney property. To maintain order for all Guests, both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort have a strict but clear set of rules and guidelines that they enforce at all times. When a rule is broken, Disney is known to swiftly implement appropriate punishments for the Guests in the wrong.
One Guest has gained the attention of Disney fans online after posting a rant about being banned from Disney. Clearly, the public reaction to this fan’s story was not what the Guest had hoped…
How to Get Banned From Disney
Disney strives to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all its Guests, and when someone’s behavior becomes disruptive or goes against the Park rules, appropriate action is taken. In the case of one Disney Magic Key holder, their Park privileges were stripped from them after they broke a major safety rule.
Being banned at Disney may come as a shock to some, but it serves as a reminder that even the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’ has its limits. Disney takes Guest safety and comfort seriously, and their dedication to maintaining a wholesome and family-friendly environment is evident.
One can only imagine what kind of actions would warrant a ban from Disney. Oftentimes, reasons for a ban could be as extreme as physical altercations or verbal abuse towards Disney Cast Members or other Guests. Other reasons could involve illegal activities, such as attempting to sneak into restricted areas or vandalizing Park property. Disney makes its rules very clear when you are in the Parks, so to break one, you usually would have to go out of your way to be naughty.
It’s important to note that being banned from Disney is not a temporary inconvenience. Disney takes these matters seriously, and a ban typically extends beyond a single trip or visit. The length of the ban is determined by the severity of the offense committed. This serves as a deterrent to ensure that individuals think twice before engaging in inappropriate behavior or breaking the park rules.
Guest Irritated by Year-Long Ban, but Fans Don’t See Things the Same Way
One Guest took to Disneyland Resort’s Reddit page to share their irritation over being banned. According to the Disney Park Guest, they were banned by a Cast Member because they unbuckled their seatbelt while riding Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! Not only is this “trend” extremely dangerous, but it also clearly goes against a Park rule. After the incident, the Guests was reportedly escorted out by Disney security.
As punishment for their actions, this Disney fan will be restricted from using their Magic Key Annual Pass for an entire year. While this Guest thinks this punishment is too severe, many fellow Guests in the comments are surprised Disney was not more strict. The post reads:

While it may seem harsh to some, Disney has a responsibility to prioritize the safety and well-being of its Disney theme park Guests and Cast Members. By enforcing strict rules and consequences, they uphold their commitment to creating a positive and magical experience for all. It also sends a clear message that such behavior will not be tolerated and that Disney is committed to maintaining the integrity of its brand.
