For many, Walt Disney World is a magical place where fairy tales come to life and dreams come true. Millions of Guests flock to the Florida theme parks every year, excitedly taking their picture in front of Cinderella Castle, seeing animals like elephants up close and personal, or maybe taking a journey into imagination with an adorable purple dragon named Figment. Disney truly seems like a place where your worries disappear and nothing can go wrong.
Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Long days under the hot sun and dealing with large crowds can sometimes push people to their breaking point. Emotions run high and that can cause some to lose their temper. That seems to be what happened recently at the popular EPCOT attraction, Living With the Land. Guests riding the attraction — which takes you through beautiful greenhouses — saw two families engaging in a fistfight where the boats unload.
RandomDisneyDude shared a shocking video of the fight on social media, and you can watch it below.

No one, except the parties involved, knows what the fight was about, but as you can see, fists were flying and one man was on the ground. A Cast Member stands off to the side and shouts at the parties to stop, but wisely did not try to insert herself into the fight. The parties eventually separate, while still screaming at each other, and walk away. It is unknown if security caught up with either group and removed them from the Park.
Walt Disney World states the following rule on its website:
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.
Guests who violate this policy may be asked to leave and escorted from whatever Park they are in, or wherever the incident has taken place. Sadly, this is not the first time that a fight has broken out at the Most Magical Place on Earth. Fights have broken out on the Magic Kingdom Ferry that takes Guests between the Magic Kingdom, Polynesian Village Resort, and the Grand Floridian.
