Disney Cast Members do a lot of behind the scenes that Disney Guests do not realize they go through. To be a Disney Cast Member, they train for the attractions or even “Disney school” to learn to be a character. Cast Members training to be a character learn the character’s signature and way they act.

Warning: Not Safe For Magic Spoilers Ahead!

In a viral TikTok, a former Disneyland Cast Member comes out about the time she was assaulted while playing the Disney Character Eeyore. During this experience, she explained that there is two Eeyore who are scheduled for the same day that way Cast Members can switch off every half hour to take a break. The other Eeyore came in to take a break, and she was walking out as Eeyore to go wait in the queue to meet Guests. When a father and daughter spotted her walking out, they tried to stop Eeyore for photos.

Sadly, Disney characters cannot stop to take photos for one Guest, as they mostly will be taken over by a crowd or Guests waiting for them may get upset. This father started backing up to get these photos, and Eeyore points to her watch, saying she has somewhere to be. As Eeyore walked past this father, he puts his camera down and backhanded the character in the face. This Cast Member talked about how dangerous this is because the Disney character’s heads are attached to the headpiece that the Cast Member wears, so when he hit Eeyore, her head also turned. This father tried to hurry off after this altercation, but everyone in Critter Country had already seen it.
