Disney is warning guests to be on their best behavior at their California and Florida resorts after an uptick in fights at the parks.
Both Disneyland and Walt Disney World added courtesy sections to the “Know Before You Go” section of their website, reminding guests that inappropriate behavior may result in removal from the property.
For park visitors in California, Disneyland’s warning says: “We ask that everyone who comes to this happy place treat others with respect, courtesy and compassion. To help guests have a safe and enjoyable experience, we inform regularly the rules of the Disneyland Resort.”
Additionally, in the property rules section, the park asks guests to show “common courtesy” to other guests and cast members (employees) “do not use profanity or engage in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior, line jumping, or saving places on the lines for others’.

Walt Disney World in Florida shares a similar message by encouraging guests to “be the magic you want to see in the world” and always treat others with respect, kindness and compassion. The park warns that those unable to meet the “mere wish” will be asked to leave the resort.
According to WDW News Today, fights have broken out at the Florida resort in several places over the past year and a half, including Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom, Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios, Living With The Land at EPCOT and on ferries to and from the Magic Kingdom.
In July this year, a large brawl between two families took place in front of Peter Pan’s Flight, just months after a woman suffered a head injury following an argument during a fireworks display.
