If you know me, you know I love me some Disneyland. What you may not know is that I also like looking at strangers’ vacation photos and videos taken at the Magic Kingdom. Sick, I know, but I have the uncanny ability to look past the images of not-cute children to where the real magic is.
My favorite site for Disneyland lurking is MiceAge. In addition to actual breaking Disney news-type stuff, MiceAge hosts forums where obsessives like me can post said photos and videos. This is where I found the following video by a poster called RPDigger, who was at the Magic Kingdom with his family when he witnessed a foot chase occurring.
As best he could tell, some idiot struck a Cast Member somewhere near New Orleans Square then took off for Main Street, where he was apprehended by Disney Security (if you’re going to commit a crime, best not to do it in flip-flops). Check it out:
I really hate to see people misbehaving at Disneyland, and though I’m sure Walt wouldn’t have approved of a takedown in the middle of idyllic Main Street, I’m glad to see douchebaggery being punished accordingly. It warms my heart to think these fools paid hundreds of dollars just to get tossed out (you know, assuming they did something worth getting tossed out for; guilty until proven innocent! — or whatever).
Interestingly, this same poster, RPDigger, on the very same day, was riding the Jungle Cruise when something went awry and the boats had to return to the dock in reverse. I’ve posted that video after the jump. There’s nothing more fun than having a ride break down at Disneyland — that’s when you get a glimpse behind the magic.
[By the bye, I’m in full obsessed-with-Disneyland mode now, so expect more posts like this on this site. You’ve been warned.]
