Wild brawl breaks out near Goofy’s House in Disneyland

July 11, 2019 Headline News No Comments Email Email

A violent brawl in Disneyland, involving both men and women, has produced jaw-dropping footage showing punching, screaming and weeping, set against the cartoonish backdrop of Toontown, as horrified families look on.

Disneyland tags itself “The Happiest Place on Earth” so the mass punch-up near Goofy’s House was incongruous, to put it mildly, especially as Disney cast members in costume were around.

An alarming video shows two men punching women, even though one of the women is pushing a stroller carrying two toddlers. The video then shows men brawling, along with screaming and graphic language.

“Who ARE these people?” shocked onlookers wondered.

“Call security!” one bystander demands, repeatedly.

Park officials handed those involved over to Anaheim police. A Disneyland spokesperson told USA Today: “Any type of violence is inexcusable and will not be tolerated.”

The fight took place in Toontown, a low-key, child-friendly area where families can meet and take photos with popular Disneyland characters.

Wild scenes in Toontown

Mickey’s Toontown opened in 1993, inspired by Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It resembles a set from a Max Fleischer cartoon. The stylized and colourful buildings make the melee seem even more bizarre. Some bystanders may have thought it was some sort of act, or show.

Cries of “oh wow!” and laughter can be heard, as well as groans and children crying.

The video begins with an argument between a man and woman. The woman, pushing a stroller, apparently spits in the man’s face – and he retaliates by slapping her. A second man then enters the scene.

Part of the fighting

Stunned bystanders, some with children in strollers, watch in horror as adult men and women attack each other. Someone is dragged by the hair and at one point during the fight, a woman in a mobility scooter stands up and is knocked down.

The scene is so far removed from Walt Disney’s vision of “The Happiest Place on Earth”, the good man must have been spinning in his grave.
