ANAHEIM, Calif. — A Disneyland guest recorded a violent brawl that broke out between family members at Disneyland on over the weekend.
The video, dated July 6, 2019, shows at least two men and two women involved in the fight at Mickey’s Toontown, with others trying to intervene and stop the altercation.
Children, along with other park guests, witnessed the fight.
Another woman could be seen spitting in a man’s face. He then punched her in retaliation.
A woman in a motorized scooter — apparently the mother of one of the men — tried to break up the fight, and later is seen being inadvertently knocked over when two other women start throwing punches at each other. One of those women is also knocked to the ground after being slapped in the face and grabbed by her tank top by the man in red.
The people involved in the fight were immediately escorted out of the park, a Disneyland official told KTLA.
“Any type of violence is inexcusable and will not be tolerated,” Disneyland spokeswoman Liz Jaeger said. “Those involved were immediately removed from the premises and turned over to the Anaheim Police Department.”

Anaheim police said everyone involved in the fight belongs to the same family and that they were uncooperative when officers responded. Monday afternoon, police said that Anaheim city attorneys were considering whether to file charges against the people involved in the fight.
“We didn’t have the luxury of viewing video at that time so we wrote a report to document” the incident, Anaheim Police Sgt. Daron Wyatt said.
After cell phone video of the fight was posted on Facebook on Sunday night, police assigned the case to detectives who were meeting with city attorneys on the possibility of filing charges such as misdemeanor child endangerment or fighting in public, Wyatt said.
