2 Families Get Into a Ridiculous Fight at Disney World Over Who Gets Photographed First
Disney World is an ideal location to spend some quality time with your family. But what happens when chaos breaks out in the land of happiness as well? Two families were recently captured feuding with each other before breaking into a physical fight in front of the iconic Disney World garden. In case you are wondering what caused the brawl, then you'll be surprised to know that this was all for a picture.
According to NBC News, the fight occurred at the Magic Kingdom area around 2:30 p.m. on May 15, 2023, as reported by the Orange County Sheriff. A member of a visiting family was trying to pose for a photo in front of the amusement park's 100th-anniversary sign and had asked another fellow from a larger family of tourists to move out of the frame. But it seems the other party did not take it lightly.

As per the reports, someone from the larger family started punching a member of the other family in the face and the "fight ensued from there." Two unspecified people were also got banned from the property post the altercation. "If they return, they can be arrested," the sheriff's office said in a statement. But at the end of the day, no one was arrested because the victim did not want to press charges and they were medically treated on the scene as well.
The viral video which was circulated on several social media platforms shows a group of adults throwing punches at each other while the onlookers watch cluelessly. Another footage showed the authorities handcuffing someone on the ground but it is not confirmed whether the video is related to the family brawl or not. "We have no way of knowing whether what is in the video that has been circulating online is this incident," a sheriff's spokesperson said, per the outlet.

The outlet reached out to Walt Disney World for a comment on this incident but there was no response from their side. Amongst many of the rules of the famous theme park, visitors are not supposed to use "profanity or engage in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior, jumping lines or saving places in lines for others,” as listed on the official website of Disney World. But it is obvious that these folks did not read through the rules and ended up fighting over a petty issue.

As you can see.. neither family has common sense— Lil Lefebvre (@LefebvreLil) May 19, 2023
Time and place for all that beefing
Judging by physical prowess, you'd think they're fighting over who goes first into the buffet line— ✍ 𝐂𝐫𝐲𝐩𝐭𝐨 𝐅𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐬 📒 (@BlocksNThoughts) May 18, 2023
However, this isn't the first time a fight has broken out in the popular theme park. In July 2022, three people were arrested on misdemeanor battery and one was hospitalized for a minor injury after they were involved in a fight at the Magic Kingdom, reports the outlet. All we can say is that the next time you visit an amusement park, make sure to not step into other visitors' frames or you might be at risk of getting punched.
