Disney World served up a special dish of eggs with glass at one of its most exclusive restaurants at Magic Kingdom. That’s according to a new lawsuit filed last week in Orange County Circuit Court against Disney on behalf of Illinois resident Mary Brumbaugh, who says she was visiting Magic Kingdom Park along with 14 family members and enjoying breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table restaurant, the iconic, Cinderella-themed table-service venue located inside Cinderella Castle.

The lawsuit reads in part, “When [Brumbaugh] ate her eggs, she bit into broken glass that was contained within the eggs.”

In the lawsuit, Brumbaugh accuses Disney World of being negligent and of putting her in a dangerous situation. The Illinois resident says she was injured by the broken glass in her food and required medical treatment because of her injuries. She further claims that her physical injuries were serious and that the treatment required for her injuries resulted in bills from her doctor and her dentist. Brumbaugh also says that she also had to deal with the emotional effects of the ordeal.

“On July 31, 2019, Mary Brumbaugh, who was 58 at the time, and her family visited Disney World from Chicago, Illinois, for what they believed would be a fun vacation,” said attorneys John Morgan and Scott Halperin in a statement released on Wednesday morning. “While dining at a restaurant in the Magic Kingdom, our client was allegedly served glass in her food that fractured two dental crowns and led to extensive bleeding in her mouth. We are working to ensure Disney is held accountable for their alleged negligence and to ensure they take more care to prevent future incidents like this.”
