Disneyland fight caught on video stuns Toontown crowd

A brawl broke out among family members visiting Disneyland. The fight, which was caught on video, brought a disturbing dose of reality to the Happiest Place on Earth.

The video, posted to YouTube July 7 and dated the day before, shows two men hitting women even as one of the women pushes a stroller carrying two toddlers. The video contains violence and graphic language.

The guests were immediately escorted from the park and the case turned over to Anaheim police.

“We do not condone this behavior,” a Disneyland official said. 

The fight took place inside Toontown, a child-friendly area where families can meet and take photos with Disneyland’s most popular characters.

The video begins with an argument between a man and woman. The woman, pushing a stroller, spits in the man’s face. The man retaliates by slapping her as those nearby react with groans.

A second man enters and squares up against the man who slapped the woman. The two throw wild punches, most of them missing their targets.

The second man then pulls back his fist as if to throw another punch at the first man, but he suddenly turns and strikes a nearby woman attempting to intervene and break up the fight.

The two men continue to trade wild blows when a third woman in a scooter drives between them. At that point, the first man backs up and tracks down the woman who spit on him, who was watching from several feet away.

He slaps her and pulls her hair when the second man again approaches and gets the first man to back off.

At one point a maintenance man attempts to intervene as members of the crowd scream for others to call for security.

Even as the first man walks away — the fight appearing to be over — two women scream at one another and swing wildly, knocking over the woman who had been riding the scooter. That woman lay prone on the ground until others help her up.

That’s when the first man returns to check on the woman who had fallen, whom he refers to as “Mama.” He again slaps the woman who had spit on him, pulling her hair and knocking her to the ground.

Two minutes into the video, members of the crowd intervene and ask those involved to break it up, stepping between the combatants and asking them to walk away.

You can hear some of the shocked comments that a profanity-laced brawl would take place in Disneyland, of all places. One woman is heard calling the police as the first man screams, “I’m ready to go to jail tonight.”

Just when things appear to calm down, the first man screams at the woman who was punched earlier when she tried to intervene. Accusing her of hitting his mother, the man punches the woman in the face, knocking off her glasses, before he grabs her hair with his left hand and pummels her with his right.

Many in the crowd scream and it takes three men to pull the man off her. They bring him to the ground, where he appears to finally relax.

Three and a half minutes in, a Disneyland security officials arrive to take control of the situation. As the upbeat Toontown music plays in the background, the four-minute video comes to an end.

It’s been viewed more than a half-million times.
