Tensions between two families erupted into an all-out brawl at Disney World after one group refused to allow the other to take an unobstructed family photo.
Around 2:30 on Monday afternoon, an unidentified family group was strolling about Disney World near Orlando, Florida. Once inside the Magic Kingdom, the family decided to take a group photo in front of a sign and decorative garden arrangement marking Disney's 100th anniversary, which the park is celebrating throughout 2023. However, the family soon had a problem: A larger family had stepped into the same spot, preventing the first family from taking a photo of just themselves.
According to reports, the first family asked the second family to kindly step aside during the photo, but a man in the second family responded to the request by decking a member of the first family in the face. Within seconds, members of both factions broke out into fist fight interspersed with incoherent shouting and foul language. Someone called the cops, and park employees requested backup as they rushed over to the scene to try and separate the two camps.
As so often happens these days, area bystanders quickly pulled out their cell phones to capture the brawl on video and then share those videos on social media:
Another video from the WFLD-TV news report seen below shows one man on the ground as another man lands several blows to his head and body. After the attacker left, the man remained seated, looking dazed, exhausted, and unable to stand. One person was treated for injuries at the scene but declined to press charges. It is unclear whether the man on the ground was the injured party.
