When you walk through the gates of a Disney park, it can feel like the real world fades away. Disney parks are full of magic, and it seems like nothing bad can happen while you are there. However, it is important to remember that you are still in the real world. Anything can happen, and you must be careful and not be completely reckless.
It seems that two parents forgot that there was no magic spell that had been cast over the parks when they visited Disneyland Resort recently. They also seemed to forget that a small child cannot be left alone in a place like Disney.
TikToker Victoria Ahedoa (@victoriaahedo) was absolutely stunned when she saw that a young child — small enough to ride in a baby stroller — had been abandoned by its parents in Tomorrowland. Victoria uploaded a series of videos, with the first one showing the stroller, with a cast member and security looking it over to make sure the child was okay.
The second video is even more shocking than the first. Victoria said that the parents came back AFTER AN HOUR. Yes, you read that correctly. The parents had allegedly left the baby or toddler alone for more than an hour while they strolled around the theme park. The second video shows the parents talking to Disney security, but we cannot hear what is said.
In the third and final video, the parents are seen walking away with their older child, as well as the child in the stroller. Security is not escorting them, so we can only assume that they were not told to leave Disneyland Park.
In addition to being upset with the parents who left their child, but also the way the situation was handled by Disney cast members and security. Many were calling on Disney to not only kick the guests out, but also call Child Protective Services for child abandonment.
I just came from Pt. 2. These two employees should be fired for not reporting this, and parents should be arrested for child neglect.
However, someone who appeared to be a Disney cast member jumped in and defended the cast member in the video. They said that this actually happens more than we would like to think, but cast members can only do so much. It is mainly on security to decide what will happen.
i see things happen like this almost every week and i wish more would happen to the parents 🤷🏻♀️ unfortunately it’s not up to me it’s on security
Others were more sympathetic to the parents. They said that, in a lot of countries, it is not unusual to leave a child in a stroller while the parents do what they need to do. They thought that maybe the parents were from a country where leaving a baby in a stroller is more the norm than it is in the United States.
In the end, we can only hope that the parents learned their lesson and will not leave their young child alone at Disney in the future. Places like Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris, and other Disney parks are safe, but guests must always act responsibly.
What do you think about what the parents did? Do you think Disney security handled it the right way? Let us know in the comments.
