Disney banned famous Disney Adult for thirty days after breaking Company rules and posting a forbidden selfie on social media.
Since the advent of social media, Guests experience Disney Parks worldwide in entirely new ways, thanks to the popularity of theme park content on platforms such as Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook. Now, some users have built entire brands on their Disney fandom, often going to extreme lengths to get the perfect shot… even if it means breaking a few rules.

Indeed, this sense of entitlement has irritated many theme park-goers, who lambast so-called “Disney Adults” on social media for these practices. For example, an unidentified woman recently went viral online after a TikToker shared a video of her posing in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle with an open flame before a Cast Member notified Disney security.
However, not all Disney Adults are so anonymous, such as self-confessed hardcore fan Rebel Wilson, star of the Pitch Perfect trilogy. Allegedly, while spending her 40th birthday inside Disneyland Park, she attempted to “break into” one of the storage locations for the coveted Park churros, or possibly a churro cart itself, according to Glamour.

However, this feat was not Wilson’s first or most impactful infraction. While appearing on The Daily Show yesterday, the Australian actress, who spends most weekends and special occasions at Disney Parks, told Hasan Minhaj a story about when she received a Disneyland Resort ban after posting a controversial image online.
Of course, Rebel is a member of Club 33, an exclusive Disney Parks membership that offers legendary perks, such as access to locations typically restricted to the average Guest, like the Lily Belle Caboose Car, a Carthay Circle Lounge, and obviously, New Orleans Square’s Club 33 itself, which offers a fine dining experience unlike any other. Although Wilson said of her membership: “You’re not supposed to say you’re in it. You’re not supposed to reveal other celebrities who are in it or other members, but yeah, I am in it. And we do secret cool shit together,” it’s not precisely that taboo.

Even so, there are a few rules members have to follow regarding theme park conduct, inviting Guests into the dining location, and the purchase of limited-edition merchandise. For instance, the bathrooms inside Club 33 do not allow any photography or recording, which assumably is the “secret bathroom” location Wilson mentions in the segment.
Moreover, the star then posted this “illegal” image to her social media accounts, resulting in a 30-day ban from the Southern California Disney Park. Luckily, Disney allowed Rebel to negotiate the terms to apply to a period in June when she would be unavailable anyways while filming a movie and regained access just in time to orchestrate a magical fairytale proposal to her partner Romona Agruma, with approval from Disney CEO Bob Iger himself.
