Video posted to social media sites showed what appeared to be a large fight at the Magic Kingdom inside Fantasyland, behind Cinderella’s Castle, and in front of Peter Pan’s Flight. Fists were flying according to one man who told FOX 35 he witnessed the incident first-hand. He said he recorded a video of the fight which he shared with us.
“I do not know what prompted this altercation. We came upon it, and it appeared as though it took about two minutes for two security personnel to arrive. Deputies arrived probably about five minutes after that,” the witness told FOX 35 News.
One man involved reportedly had injuries to his face and EMS responded. FOX 35 has reached out to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office for additional details, and we will update this story as we receive them.
