Walt Disney World Resort is known as The Most Magical Place On Earth. Guests visiting Walt Disney World can experience amazing fireworks shows, ride immersive attractions, and dine on incredible food. Unfortunately, sometimes Guests have some not-so-magical experiences, and that usually comes at the hands of other Guests that display behavior that is considered inappropriate.
Oftentimes, Cast Members will approach the problematic Guest and ask them to change their behavior, and, most of the time, the Guests listen and the day goes on. However, sometimes there are Guests who do not appreciate being told what to do by Cast Members because they feel entitled to behave how they want to on a vacation that cost them a lot of money.
Such was the case with one Guest, whose behavior was so abhorrent that he ended up being banned from Disney property for life. The Guest, seemingly thinking that he was in the right, videoed his encounter with Orange County Police and Walt Disney World security as they escorted him off of Disney Springs property. A Redditor who goes by DrKillFactory saw the video and recently uploaded it to the Reddit Forum /PublicFreakout.
You can watch the video by clicking here. Warning: The video contains very explicit and offensive language.
As the Guest states, he was escorted out of Disney Springs for using an incredibly offensive word and tells the camera that the police in Florida aren’t used to dealing with people from Detroit — thinking that that makes what he said okay. He continues to say the offensive word and directs it to one of the officers in particular. The video later cuts to the man sitting in his hotel pool, and he says that Disney has banned him from the Parks for life.
Walt Disney World currently has the following rules in place that Guests must follow while on Resort property:
Please show common courtesy to fellow Guests and our Cast Members by not using profanity or engaging in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior, jumping lines or saving places in line for others. For your safety and the safety of others, please refrain from running except in designated areas.
If Guests, like the one in the video, violate these rules, Disney reserves the right to remove the Guest from the property. In some instances, Disney can and will ban Guests from the Parks for a certain amount of time and, in extreme cases, lifetime bans will be put in place.
Do you think Disney did the right thing in banning this Guest for life?
