Photo Op Disagreement Turns into Brutal Magic Kingdom Brawl

It seems a disagreement over a popular location outside of Magic Kingdom to take photos was enough for two families to throw punches and get into an all out fight that got very brutal very fast.

According to Fox 35, the fight began Monday afternoon at the Walt Disney World theme park just past the entrance gates at the recently debuted 100 sign, which celebrates the 100 years of magic of The Walt Disney Company.

According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the police department say they responded to the theme park around 2:30 p.m. on Monday. Reportedly, one family was standing in front of the sign, where another family wanted to take a photo. One family asked the other to move and it was followed by one family member punching another member of the other family in the face. You can probably imagine what followed.

A bystander captured the fight on camera and shared the video with FOX 35 News. To see the full video, be sure to head over to Fox 35 by clicking here.

“Did you see how it broke out?” someone could be heard saying in the video. “I was just walking right here and I saw it just happening.”

According to Orange County deputies, at least one person was treated medically at the scene following the fight. However, that person did not want to press charges. Two others were removed from the theme park entirely.

FOX 35 reached out to Walt Disney World for comment, but did not immediately hear back.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time we’ve heard of adults getting in brawls at the Disney Parks.
