Disney Junior Gets Dirty
Disney Junior Gets Dirty

"As a past cast member I have many many stories, but one that was the hardest to see: I was coming back from break and went past the break area and saw some fur characters and they were playing some rap music and there was Sofia the First bent over with Handy Manny right behind her if you get my drift. Several other fur characters were around too laughing and cheering them on."

"This Was The First Time I Actually Understood How Bad Harassment Feels"

"I used to work in one of the countries in Epcot and one of my first days on the job was during a special festival that the guests tend to have a little too much to drink at. Well, I'm standing there next to the troll talking to a group of elderly ladies when they ask me to take a picture with them, so I flag down one of my colleagues to take the picture.

I'm standing there in the middle of a group women age 50 to probably a 100 smiling in front of the in-house troll when I feel a hand sliding down my back to my posterior, then the hand starts fondling my buttocks. My colleague is trying to operate the ancient camera the ladies brought with them and is taking ages to actually take the dang picture. Because I was so dedicated to my role, I just stand there smiling and wondering what the heck is happening to me.

When the picture is finally taken I look to my left to see which of the ladies that is massaging my patootie and I look directly into the eyes of the oldest of the gang. She actually looked a lot like the troll but in a wheelchair. The old perv winked at me and then she was rolled away by what I presume was her daughter.

There was a lot of inappropriate behavior and touching from female guests while I worked there, and as a male, this was the first time I actually understood how bad harassment feels. But I smiled my way through it, and looking back the nice memories outweighs the creepy."

"He Was Bleeding Pretty Profusely"

"I was walking out of the Space Mountain break room and saw one of my guy friends at the 'Honey I shrunk the audience' area look like he was about to vomit and one of my girlfriends who was laughing hysterically. Apparently, in the dark of the theater, 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 he was bleeding pretty profusely."

You Like What You See?

"One time I was working and a visibly wasted woman was standing by me with her kids. She was wearing a bikini top and at this particular theme park, we were asked to tell people not to wear bikini tops in the park. I asked her politely that if she had a shirt to please put it on since bathing suits were only allowed for small children. She looked at me so out of it and said, 'You think I'm hot don't you?' and 'You like my lady parts don't you?' Then she flashed me and grabbed me and give me a little kiss. Management was like WTF but she had disappeared into the crowd. Later on, a manager approached me and said she had been kicked out of the park and arrested because she was belligerently wasted at one of the popular kid's shows."

His Silly Prank Became Painted Red

His Silly Prank Became Painted Red

"I worked in the '90s next to the Mean Streak (at the time was the biggest, longest, highest, fastest wooden coaster). This guest didn't think to keep his hands and arms in the car at all times, so he has his arm hanging out of the car as he's slumped over pretending the ride killed him or made him pass out. As the car pulls into the station, his hand gets crushed and nearly ripped off between the car and the platform.
I could hear screams (probably some his, but mostly other guests) from where I was working. I went over and there was quite a bit of blood from the start of the platform to where the train finally stopped. They had him out wrapping it up until they ushered us all away. I'm sure those laughs he got for two seconds ('haha, look, the ride killed him') was totally worth it.
I sometimes wonder how it worked out for him. I don't know enough to say whether the hand was salvageable or not, nor did I ever hear any follow up."

She Was Not Prepared For What She Saw

She Was Not Prepared For What She Saw

"I used to work park buyouts for Walt Disney World and we'd do these huge nighttime events for cheerleading awards. One night was just for middle and high school cheer and dance teams (and their families) and one year when my friend and I were working, she rushed around the corner of a gate to go backstage and ran smack into some preteens enthusiastically fooling around.

Apparently, my coworker just shrieked, the kids froze in panic like promiscuous little deer in the headlights, thinking they'd get absolutely ratted out to their coaches and families, but my friend was so exhausted and surprised that she just yelled, 'Eeeagh! No! No! You're children! Children! Go! Get outta here!!! Childrennn!!!'

She had to give a report to our boss and he asked if the kids were over with security or if they'd just made a run for it and she gave him the most pathetic face I've ever seen this girl make and whispered, 'I...forgot about security. I just... screamed... at them... in their faces... they were children!' I kept catching her just mumbling that to herself the entire rest of the shift."

An Extremely Goofy Brawl
An Extremely Goofy Brawl

"The year is 2001, summertime. I was fresh out of high school with no skills or talents, so naturally, I became a proud cast member at Walt Disney World. My esteemed lack of value got me drafted into a terrible job. No, not food service, not janitor - those career paths would have been a treat compared the venerated title of 'Character Handler,' or the guy who makes sure the dude in the Mickey costume doesn't get rolled over by deranged guests. I spent many hot, long days standing against the hordes of crappy parents trying to get their crappy kids into pictures, but it was all worth it to have just this one experience.

I worked with a particular Goofy who was kind of a jerk, the sort of fellow you wouldn't want hugging your wife or your children, always bragging about groping this or staring at that. All this could only end one way, and it happened on my shift. I was doing some crowd control when I heard some shouting. I turn just in time see a guy who was probably barely 21 was clearly flipping Goofy off. There's a woman nearby telling the man to calm down. Meanwhile Goofy is playing it cool, shrugging. This only prompts the man to accuse Goofy. 'Don't play this game,' he says, 'I saw you grab her butt.'

Right now I'm in full meltdown mode. It's my job to handle this kind of thing since the actor isn't allowed to speak for himself, so I start walking over, but then Goofy shrugs again. And then he makes some sort of gesture which conveyed that he was caught red-handed and feeling bashful. I'm not sure if he was trying to make the guy angry, but it worked because Goofy immediately gets shoved.

Now remember, this Goofy is kind of a horrible person, so he responds in kind and then throws his hands up, gangster-style. Granted, his job is already over at this point, so he's got nothing left to hold him back when the angry dude decides that it's time to beat Goofy up. They quickly become enthralled in the most hilarious brawl I've ever seen. Goofy gets the worst of it - sort of. Imagine trying to pummel a man encased in foam armor. It doesn't really protect, but it sure as heck gets in the way, kind of like a hockey fight. At some point Goofy did manage to get the guys shirt over his head, pummeling him with the full wrath of white cartoon gloves. I'm not breaking up this fight. I just call security and keep everyone away from it. Security gets there pretty fast (we were close by), but before they arrive Goofy has head all spun around and is finally missing a glove. His overalls are ripped, he's missing buttons and various accessories, but best of all he's still swearing and throwing fists like a sailor, pissing off the security dudes even more. If only smartphones had been invented. Twelve years later and I'm still laughing about it. There were about 40 kids to witness Goofy get his butt kicked.

Goofy did, of course, lose his job. His assailant, however, gets turned over to the cops. I got to make my first police statement. I did hear later on that the guy was arrested and charged with assault."

He Took Drastic Measures To Avoid Losing His Spot In Line

"A friend of my sister's was working the new Seven Dwarfs mine car roller coaster at Disney World when it first opened. The wait time was incredibly long because it was so new, and I mean hours long. A fully grown man became so angry at her for not letting him out of line to go the restroom without losing his spot that he squatted down and took a dump in the middle of the line."

She Wanted To Give This Girl A Serious Burn For

She Wanted To Give This Girl A Serious Burn For "Insulting" Her

"My best story is how often girls would flash us for better prizes and get mad when we still say no. One guy got apparently got some action for a TV and was fired later.

Worst was this fat white girl with blue hair who ordered deep fried oreos and a funnel cake. The girl who served it to her had the audacity to say, 'Enjoy, forks are on the table.' I know what you are thinking - 'how could she?' Well, apparently if so you are in the same boat as blue hair. You see she thought the park was insulting her weight by having an attractive 98 lb blond girl serve her. She responded by screaming that loudly at the girl. The girl responded by walking to the other side of the booth. Blue hair wobbled over, screamed some more then threw the scalding hot funnel cake into her face burning her. Security came and ended up having to throw the blue beast on the grounds and handcuff her to the bench effectively tethering the blimp to the ground. The server girl was crying and had to be looked at by the medical guys. Blue hair was arrested."

Talk About A Nutcracker...
Talk About A Nutcracker...

"One Christmas at EPCOT's Germany Pavilion I was hanging out as the Nutcracker. I would do photo meet and greets every hour. First set of the day I walk out in full gear, green pants and white knobs for hands. The first kid walks up to me, super excited! Being the short 6-year-old that he was, he holds onto my leg for the picture. 'Aww!' says his mom as she fumbles with the camera.

Then I feel it. While his mom takes a lifetime to snap the picture, the boy's hand begins to rise. I thought nothing of it until... 'Say cheese!' GRAB! She snaps the picture while I use all my energy not to make a sound or punch him with my ball hand. He releases, finally, turns to his mother and says:

'Mommy, mommy, IT'S A BOY NUTCRACKER!!'

Nutcracker indeed."

"I Can Take Care Of Those Too"

"I work in Human Resources for a large theme park. Most of my experiences are employee-related, and typically my boss throws the really weird things straight on my desk (don't know if it's because he hates me or thinks I'm mature and responsible enough to deal with it in a professional manner - I prefer to assume the latter and not ask questions). I've had to have a conversation with an adult about why he can't say to our female customers who ask for help, 'I can help you with that,' then obviously look down at their chests, make eye contact again and say, 'I can take care of those, too.' I've had to fire someone who couldn't fathom that exposing himself to a female employee when he was just 'adjusting' himself was completely unacceptable. I have had a fight in front of my office between two employees and had to stay an extra 2 hours to work with police, security, and loss prevention. I have had to sit in on countless interviews in loss prevention for people who say they didn't know they weren't allowed to steal money out of their cash register, then when I call them to tell them they are not welcome back to work, call me a 'petty uppity white witch' even though they were the ones to steal. Good times!"

This Naughty Kid Received The Ultimate Instant Karma For His Wild Antics

"I worked on a cruise ship as a lifeguard for one summer (hated it) and was often stationed at the FlowRider (the endless wave machine where you could body surf). One jerk kid, maybe 12 or 13, would always cut line despite me yelling at him and even trying to get his parents attention but he was just 'that' kid. One time he's surfing and slips off the board enough for a WHOOSH to sweep his suit off. Not down a little, which is common on those things but right off. Naked kid comes tumbling back up desperately looking for his suit. The line has erupted in laughter. I see his suit. It's obscured by where the waves collect in a bubbling torrent. I say nothing. He was crying and eventually found them and tried putting them back on with tremendous difficulty while trying to shield his shortcomings from the public. The beautiful part is I keep a towel nearby just in case this happens but didn't offer it to him. The mom said something to me, but I just smiled and let her know that it's okay, it happens all the time. He didn't come back that day. Glorious line cutter karma."

"Everyone Got A Show That Day"

"I worked at Magic Kingdom. One of my coordinators was called over to the front of Splash Mountain where there were already a couple security guards. A woman who was pretty messed up on some sort of substance was running around screaming that her boyfriend was Peter Pan and she was waiting for him to get off work to take her to Neverland.

She then started doing handstands and such. Oh, she was also wearing a skirt and no undies, so everyone got a show that day."

Yo Ho, Yo Ho
Yo Ho, Yo Ho

"I worked at Walt Disney World for two years. One time, a friend of mine is watching the camera for Pirates of the Caribbean (the whole ride is videos with night vision cameras and someone has to watch in case something happens). A guy and girl get on and as soon as the ride turns dark she whips out his schlong and just goes to town. He must have surprised her by going in her mouth because she immediately shot back (like jerked her body upwards), and made the 'omgomgomg I think I'm gonna puke' gesture (you know, like with the hands flapping next to her face). He's laughing pretty hard, the people in the seat in front of them are oblivious, and she apparently swallows.

Fast forward 1 minute and the entire ride staff know, so as the couple gets off the ride they make a line and clap for her. No one on the ride has any idea and they all think it's part of the show so they're all giddy and excited. Meanwhile, the girl is as red as a tomato and the guy is beaming with pride."

The Elephant With Five Legs
The Elephant With Five Legs

"I was a safari driver at the Kilimanjaro safari attraction in Animal Kingdom. We had this elephant named Willy. Willy was an exhibitionist.

I was driving a safari one day, spewing out facts about Elephants when I hear a tiny voice from the back of the truck yell, 'MOOOOM! HE HAS FIVE LEGS!!!' I turn, and sure enough, there's Willy, standing with his five-foot-long man part just swaying in the Florida breeze. I had to turn my mic off I was laughing so hard."

The Saddest Jerk At The Happiest Place On Earth

"A fellow cast member was ringing up a guest for an item and he looked a little upset. She did the Disney thing and asked, 'How's everything been going sir? Happiest place still the happiest?'

He responded with, 'No, something happened today.'

'What's wrong? What happened?' She asked.

'I wanted to get my Mickey ears embroidered, but they wouldn't do it,' he replied.

She inquires, 'What did you want embroidered on it?'

'I wanted it to say 'God Hates Gay People,' but those pricks said it was against policy,' he said bitterly.

She wasn't so nice to him after that."

He Couldn't Wait

He Couldn't Wait

"When I first started working at a very large and popular theme park my first ride was a ferris wheel. This ferris wheel had two types of gondolas: stationary and swinging ones. It was a busy summer day, and our lines were fairly long. A group of three teenagers went into a swinging gondola and everything proceeded as normal until they came back around. When I went to open their gondola doors, two of them bolted up the exit ramp right away. The third one was holding a vomit bag in his hands, which had little driblets of brown down the front. I noticed those weren't the only places where whatever he put in that bag had missed. He proceeded to try to offer me the bag and explained that when he was up there he really needed to go but couldn't hold it. I let him know that I didn't want the bag and could he please dispose of it elsewhere. He did, and I closed the gondola and marked it with red tape. The next guests in line were not happy when I didn't let them in right away, but I explained that they didn't want that one. Had to call the cleanup crew, it was my first and only time doing a human waste cleanup. Kind of felt bad for the folks having to clean it up."

That's Not Very Minnie-Like Behavior
That's Not Very Minnie-Like Behavior

"A girl I went to high school with had dreams of being a Disney Princess (she didn't have the looks for it) and thus joined the college program straight out of high school. She ended up getting a gig as a Minnie for a while, and a regular cast member in a gift shop when she wasn't in character. Eventually, she got knocked up by Goofy and pregnant Minnie wasn't about to be a thing, so she ended up working with their guest relations doing phone work for a while. Not sure what she's up to now. Last I heard, she's back in the parks was trying to get a transfer for her and her kid to move to the Paris park."

Two College Students, One Monorail Car
Two College Students, One Monorail Car

"I did one of those internships at the Magic Kingdom about six years ago. My girlfriend at the time and I decided to have one last romantic outing, watching the fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom. We left our apartments and went out for an evening of reflection and emotion.

We arrived at the parking lot where you have to decide between taking the monorail or the ferry boat to the park entrance. We opted for the speedier monorail because we were running late to the show. When we get to the station, a red monorail shows up. We promptly get onboard the first car but to our surprise, nobody joined us.

We both kept fairly quiet, awkwardly smiling at guests as they walked on past. They were all leaving. Doors shut, we disembark. What happens when you put two college-aged students of opposite gender in a monorail car with tinted windows, suspended 70ft in the air? You get a magical ride to pound town on the Magic Kingdom's newest attraction, The Red Rocket High Flyin' Sky Adventure.

This 'dream come true' continues for about ten minutes until we stop just above the main gate overlooking the castle. The station ahead is still boarding, and our car had stopped. We both keep bumpin' away in this monorail ride turned log-flume and at that moment, the fireworks show began. We were late. But luckily enough, our own fireworks show commenced inside of Red Monorail car #1.

We arrived at the station ahead. When we exited our car, I felt a deep guilt for what was soon to engulf each family. I just knew that every kid was asking their parents why it smelled and the parents had to live with that lie, and smell, for their ten minute ride back to the parking lot. We then went and ate some ice cream. I had chocolate. It was dope."

Keep Your Hands And Feet In The Cart At All Times... Or Not
Keep Your Hands And Feet In The Cart At All Times... Or Not

"Girl and her friend were on a wooden roller coaster. Mid-ride they decided to switch seats. They unbuckled their seat belts just as the ride went over a hump and then under a section of track. One of the girls flew straight up out of her seat and hit the track with her face. She died a few minutes later in my direct supervisor's arms. After this happened they closed the ride for the remainder of the season and installed mechanical lap bars, twas just seat belts before."

"They Were Freaking Out"

"I worked custodial (or as we called it, show keeping) in Hollywood Studios. Once, I was at Indiana Jones (Epic Theater) and it was pouring rain to the point where everyone was hiding inside. I had a family ask me when it was going to stop raining (because I can control that). I said I wasn't sure. They were freaking out cause their son had to go to the bathroom. The theater was outdoors with a cover on top, and the nearest bathroom was across the street. They didn't want to go there because they would get wet. I had to give them a trash bag so their son could pee off to the side in some bushes."

Jamie Foxx Came, He Saw, And He Conquered
Jamie Foxx Came, He Saw, And He Conquered

"I work seasonally so I wasn't here, but all my friends at work told me that for after the Superbowl held in Glendale, Jamie Foxx rented out the entire park for an after party. They remodeled the entire park for that one night. Tore apart every game from the arcade and replaced them with bars and the likes. Limos coming in unloading waves of wasted people. The bumper boats were apparently a humongous show, and the carousel was used as dancing poles by girls. Jamie Foxx paid to repair so many rides out of his own pocket apparently. So many stories from that night and I only regret not being able to witness it."

Making The Most Of Technical Difficulties
Making The Most Of Technical Difficulties

"I used to work at Disneyland. I was an attraction cast member and operated the ferris wheel (so just pushing buttons all day). One day we had a downtime for about 15-20 minutes and when we were cleared by the maintenance and started to operate again, we unloaded the people who were stuck on the ferris wheel.

Long story short, this couple were getting off the ride and the girl's clothes were falling off of her. Half her chest was showing while her boyfriend was fixing his pants. Respect to them for utilizing our technical difficulty to their advantage."

She Noticed A Disturbing Trend

She Noticed A Disturbing Trend

"I was at a fair a couple of years ago, 'red river ex in Winnipeg, Canada' and it got really crazy. Some dude lost his hat on the crazy mouse Rollercoaster and jumped the security fence to retrieve it. Of course, he got hit by one of the cars and was badly injured, and I was there with my two sons when I heard the screaming.
They shut the ride down with several cars at the top of it and the crowd started to get pretty agitated, lots of yelling and confusion. People were saying a car fell off the track and also a guy fell out of a car. The frenzy was growing. I took a step back just to watch the crowd as they put up a tarp so no one could see the guy on the ground.
This is where it got really crazy. In the distance, there were dark thunder clouds approaching and it started raining. The people in the cars on the ride that were 50 or so feet up started freaking because, hey they are stuck 50 feet in the air on top of a metal structure and a lightning storm is imminent. There was no indication that they were going to get them down, so some of them started yelling then they tried to get out of their cars and climb along the structure. There was clearly no one taking charge and the workers that were there hadn't a clue what to do.
Keep in mind that this is all playing out in the public with over a thousand people watching the mayhem unfold. The crowd was yelling at the people in the cars, and the people stuck at the top were yelling at the workers that didn't want to start the ride because the guy is still on the ground waiting for the ambulance. It was insane.
I decided that we needed to get out of there because it looked like a riot was going to happen. As we were leaving there were several ambulances and police cars arriving. The lightning storm never happened, but the guy was pretty messed up he spent a fair bit of time in the hospital."

He Had His Shenanigans Perfectly Timed

"I used to be a Cast Member and would work evenings on the attraction Sounds Dangerous: Staring Drew Carey. Sadly, this attraction is now closed, but it was fun for me during my College Program. Most of the workers didn't like the gig because you had to get on stage and give a speech, and it was a 'one man show' kind of attraction, so you worked alone. For me, it was a chance to get a few hours to myself while working in the busy park.

Anyone who is familiar with the attraction knows that there were eight minutes of complete darkness during the show so that they can play mind games with sounds (buzzing bees, knives whizzing past your head, etc). What they didn't know is that I had a monitor in the back connected to a night vision camera so I could keep an eye out for children that got scared and I could help escort them out.

Yeah, it was fun to watch the reaction of audience members when the sounds were happening, especially how everyone would squirm and scream when the elephant squirted water at them, but it was far more interesting to watch people who thought no one could see them.

I never saw anything that extreme, but here is my wildest story. One time, as soon as the lights went out, I saw a guy straight up fooling around with 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 a common occurrence, but it was funny to watch those people carry on as if nothing ever happened afterward."
