Fight at Epcot’s Test Track Captured on Video

From the files of "how not to behave at the Walt Disney World Resort" a video surfaced this weekend that captured a fist fight between several guests in the queue of Epcot's Test Track. The video was taken by another guest in line who then sent the video to an Orlando news station.

The video shows three women in an all-out brawl Saturday night in the queue. The women were screaming and punching each other and, according to the news report, one was also using an umbrella as a "weapon."

While there's no indication of what led up to the fight we all know that tempers can be short when the lines are long. However, it's always a good idea to remember that everyone in line is trying to have a "magical" vacation and everyone needs to keep their tempers in check.

A cast member can be seen in the video attempting to break up the fight and eventually he ends up escorting the women out of the queue area.

The video can be viewed here, but we'll warn you that there is some "not suitable for work" language in the video.

According to Disney an Orange County sheriff's deputy did respond to the incident but no guests were arrested or asked to leave the theme park.

What are your thoughts on guests behaving badly at Walt Disney World Resort? Leave us a comment and let us know.

That's a fine example of behavior to set for your kids. Sheesh!

People get really irate when you leave more than 2 feet of space in front of you in a line.

Really? They weren't asked to leave?? They should have been!! If I had kids and they even remotely witnessed this while in WDW I would have been very upset.

I didn't see the video, but it's easy to see how someone without much maturity would snap in the heat after waiting an hour or two for a 3 minute ride at a time. It usually takes two or more, though. For example, one day, in 110 heat factor weather, there was this guy holding up the line so he could enjoy a little bit of shade longer. People got really angry. The space in front of him was huge and the rest of us were held behind under the searing sun. Eventually a Disney associate came and told him to move. He argued! Really? These are the kind of people, totally self-centered and immature, who only need another hothead to ruin everybody's day.

Ridiculous behavior! There should be a policy to kick out anyone involved in a fight that stops a ride. What a poor example for the children who are trying to have a 'magical' vacation.

I would say that this is part of the problem. Why would you allow these people to not only stay, but also not charge them? Act like adults or get treated like children.

Really? Not asked to leave the park, so they can up later and finish the fight? Though I will say the cast member handled it really well! Kudos to him!

I couldn't imagine being in line when this happen. Thank God that I've never encounter anything like this in my years of visiting since 2000. No excuses what so ever for them, PEOPLE NEED TO GO BACK AND LEARN HOW TO RESPECT EACH OTHER! we are all going nowhere fast. Sad.

I saw some of the rudest people at the park last week. We were eating at Tony's during the Electric Light Parade and some guy jumped the barricade to get in the outdoor seating area to watch the parade with his daughter standing in front of paying guests of the restaurant and then argued with the staff when they asked him to go to the sidewalk to watch parade like everyone else. Then he stood his daughter on top of the planter and argued again with a cast member when they asked him, for her safety, to get her off planter.

At another time we were parking and some guy refused to listen to the cast members and parked 10 spaces away from everyone else and caused a big ruckus when asked to move his car to the proper place.

I just don't understand why people will act that way. Some sort of sense of entitlement where they are above the rules and can do what the hell they want even though everyone else is following the rules.

"It is not clear what led to the fight." says the article...
Could it be the idiot smacking the lade in front with an umbrella? That'd pretty much do it for me.

Shame on them. I get it that Disney is pricey, the weather's hot and humid and the lines and crowds are so large but... there's no excuse for rudeness. There never is. My word how people forget that cooler heads prevail!

Idiots, that's the only word I came up with. They paid their money and their gonna do what they want to do. It's all about them. Charges, nah. Being inconsiderate isn't illegal nor is being stupid. They should've been tossed out though. Thank goodness for the bag check at the gate. I feel sorry for the kids who witnessed it, hopefully these people don't have any kids. Welcome to the 21st century. This is our future unless we change things.
