Criminal Activity on Disney Property

There are plenty of concerns that Guests might have when heading to Disney Parks for a vacation or outing. Things like weather, crowds, and costs are all things that Guests worry about before their trip. What doesn’t usually come to mind is a high-speed car chase.

One of the things that makes Walt Disney World and Disneyland unique is that both of them are Resort properties. This means that they both have an expansive piece of land that they own besides just the theme parks. It was on the property that a car chase went down between cops and a speeding vehicle.

Thankfully, no one has reported being hurt by this incident, which is semi-shocking due to the number of pedestrians on sidewalks in the area. This situation was definitely scary, and hopefully, all has been resolved for the Anaheim Police Department.
