Disney World sees massive fight break out between families, hospitalizing 1

A massive fight broke out at Disney World after two families argued while waiting in line, sparking a fight that landed at least one man in hospital.

The saga began at the Magic Kingdom theme park in Orlando, Florida, where two families were lining up for a performance at Mickey’s PhilharMagic Theater, according to multiple reports.

A family member left the line to retrieve her phone, which she accidentally left on her electric transportation vehicle, according to the Disney World blog “Walt Disney World News Today.” When she tried to join her group, another family, all dressed identically in red shorts and white t-shirts, tried to stop her from finding her place, according to the blog.

The blog reported that the two families clashed outside the theater, with one of the girl’s family members telling the Red Shorts clan, “We don’t appreciate you pushing my younger sister.”

A shouting match ensued, with both groups hurling profanities even as they gradually closed in on each other, eventually sparking a massive Jerry Springer-style brawl that spilled out into the street at outside the theatre.
