11 Crazy Things Disney Employees Have Witnessed While Working
TIL people are terrible. Found via Reddit.
1. This awful mom/dad:
2. This very public breakup:
Azov237: I was working in the kitchen at Cinderella's Castle when this family of four came in for their dinner. About halfway through the dinner the husband politely stands up and taps his glass for attention. He announced that his wife of 15 years has been cheating on him for over a year. The entire place stood still in shock. He motioned for his kids, paid the waitress, and left the wife crying at the table.
TL;DR: Guy tells an entire restaurant his wife has been cheating on him.
3. This ceremonial gesture:
4. This incident:
Vashthechibi: I never saw anything that extreme, but here is my wildest story: One time, as soon as the lights went out [on the Sounds Dangerous: Drew Carey ride], I saw a guy straight up finger bang his girlfriend/wife. It was obvious that he had been on the attraction before because he had it timed perfectly so that no one knew what he was doing. He wasn't even caught when the lights suddenly came on, and he was back at it as soon as the lights went out again. These kinds of things were not common occurrence, but it was funny to watch those people carry on afterwards as if nothing ever happened.
TL;DR: Guy got frisky with his girlfriend on the Drew Carey ride.
5. This child's innocence:
6. This bad example of parenting:
Broken_long_thumbkey: This couple was trying to ride Space Mountain, and had a black duffle bag. [My brother] heard something come from the bag, so he asked them to open it. They refused. Security comes, forces them to open it. It was their six-month old baby.
TL;DR: Someone tried to smuggle in their 6-month-old baby into Space Mountain.
7. And this one:
8. This not-so-happy ending:
Steakandasideofsteak: In the dark of the theater [at Honey, I Shrunk the Audience ride], some girl decided this would be a good time to go down on her boyfriend. Little did she know, about halfway into the show, one of the effects is this little tube that comes wiggling out of the seat to simulate mice running by your legs. This hit her throat, she bit down, and the guy was bleeding pretty profusely. A Grad Nite to remember!
TL;DR: Some girl goes down on her boyfriend on a ride and accidentally bites down, making him bleed everywhere.
9. This uprising:
10. This bomb scare:
Steakandasideofsteak: Someone had left an abandoned bag at the base of Space Mountain for more than 15 minutes, so we followed the normal security procedures and they brought a bomb dog out to sniff it. When our Pluto came to check the bag, he sniffed it and then sat down, which signals there is something wrong with this bag. So we had to evacuate all of Tomorrowland, literally all of the attractions/stores/restaurants, and all the CMs (cast members) were standing at all the entrances freaking out because now of course we were sure a bomb was going to go off and we would all die. Turned out that the backpack was just forgotten, full of carne asada burritos, and Pluto sat down because he thought he was getting a treat.
TL;DR: Someone left a bag, they called a bomb dog named Pluto, he sniffed and sat down, which signals that something is wrong, everyone panics, turns out it was a burrito and the dog wanted a treat.
