    * PLEASE READ *
    Lots of people are posting similar remarks about security not being in the land in the first place. Well they are, and they were. There's a good 90% chance that one of the "tourists" who subdued the man in pink, was actually secret security. And on top of that, like I said in this video, there was a security cast member there from the first minute or two of the fight, calling in re-reinforcements. Security WAS there before backup arrived.


    Thank you to everyone watching. This video is meant to shed light on some of the protocol of Disney security, and to explain a little bit about what happened in this situation. The Disney company has always been on the road of perfection. This includes safety. Disney Parks have never been satisfied with "the status quo" they are always raising the bar of safety, and this incident will provide yet another learning opportunity for them. We all would like to see this kind of thing NEVER happen, but the human element -by nature, is flawed and perfection -by nature is unfortunately never a destination. Nevertheless, its good to know that the company is leading the theme park motorcade on this road of safety perfection. All metaphors aside, Disney is still the world-wide leader in safety with their Parks and Resorts division.

      No way. That guy could've walked around smacking everybody. Even after the horrible choke hold he was able to get back up and roam around hundreds / thousands of children. Those CIVILIANS that subdued him were CIVILIANS...not undercover Disney employees.

      ​@Alex the Historian I don't care what you think of me anymore, but the statement for the is my bound. So GTFO. Who the fuck do you think you are anyway!?!?!?!? You are pathetic that you decided to put your name of the profile as a Historian when you aren't actually one. Are you Stephen Ambrose, David Mccollough who made the New York Times Best Seller List Does anyone actually owe you anything!?!?!? No!!!! Neither do I think the world should owe me a million dollars. The world is full of comforted lowlifes like you who could give a fucking shit and I didn't say you should work for me in the first place I only said I don't like you after a long rap list. Neither I sound like Hillary saying, "You will work for me or else. " Did you even fucking bother reading every word for word and figure out the main idea behind it?????? Even you work for me or tell me to curb my temper I would be so disgusted with you to the point where I WOULD HOPE YOU DIE IN PRISON ONE DAY!!!!! IF THIS WAS A DEATH PENALTY STATE, YOU WOULD BE GETTING A CHAIR ALREADY!!!!! I HAD ENOUGH OF YOU. PERIOD. SO SICK OF YOU.

      @LINJ638 I see what you're doing, you're hoping that by insulting me and being even ruder than before, that I will just do the work for you...with the psychology that I want nothing more than to prove you wrong. Well LinJ638...I don't care whether you believe me or not, it happened, and simple google search on your part can prove it. I'll tell you what I do care about though: I care that in the future you'll learn to curb that temper and just treat people with respect. You want help with something? ASK NICELY and treat people with dignity. I was nothing but forthright and polite to you, even when I was telling you "I'm sorry, I don't have the time".

      @alexthehistorian security should be at fault. It should not take 3.5 minutes to respond to the situation. That’s unacceptable because people could have been severely injured. Also by the time of this posting it’s been 5 days and Disney has not addressed the situation. Also with the amount of money that park makes they can afford quality security.
      Because the silence over this incident is worse than the incident itself. People now see Disneyland as unsafe. Not to mention all the negative press this has generated.
      In addition, Disney knows how to make things disappear. For example Deborah Gail Stone even cast members don’t know who she is.
      What they need to do is hire security capable of handling the situation.

      • Alex the Historian
        Alex the Historian   3 months back

        @Kevin Williams try asking about "the girl that got crushed". Then you'll see that cast members know Deborah.

      • Kevin Williams
        Kevin Williams  3 months back

        Alex the Historian I said most cast members don’t know who she is. But when I mention her name to people over 50 they know her name.

      • Alex the Historian
        Alex the Historian   3 months back

        @Kevin Williams but you just said people don't know who she is, now you're saying she's not forgotten. And you're right, it's easy to obtain a guard card ...but there aren't enough people to fill the position. Disney is always hiring for guard card security. They've never stopped hiring that position since September 2001

      • Kevin Williams
        Kevin Williams  3 months back

        First off it’s not that difficult to obtain a guard card. Most security companies will pay for it. Not to mention people are always getting out of the military. Hiring qualified people who are veterans #winwin for both sides. Finally Deborah Stone is not forgotten when you still mention that name to anyone over 50 they remember. Tragedies on that level don’t disappear and this fight will be around for years to come. It’s been uploaded to YouTube by about 20 different channels and viewed over 15 million times.

      • Alex the Historian
        Alex the Historian   3 months back

        Kevin, there aren't enough guard-card holding people in the LA Orange county area to fill Disneyland's requirements. There just aren't. And Deborah Stone was forgotten in time. Hardly Disney's doing

      My hunch is a few of the grey hat, dark shirt wearing guys were security. The guy with the red backpack that choked the guy out, definitely, as well as the guy who tapped him on the shoulder as he made his way out of there. People are plenty safe at Disneyland.

        Disneyland at some point decided nothing spells authority like senior citizens in plastic fedoras.

        • Eva Peron
          Eva Peron  3 months back

          I know the blue shirts have actual Guard Cards which California initially screens for criminal background fairly in depth and the cards are renewed every 2 years for $40. The metal detectors and blue shirts came in after I left so I go on here say from what is passed onto me. I have observed the blue shirts seemingly acting as Leads at the metal detectors, assigning breaks, and the white shirts seem to answer to them, so they would seem to have more authority. I have never really seen many blue shirts other than at the detectors and maybe cutting through the park on their way to someplace else. I know Theme Park Security had absolute authority for decision making, being able to override people like Attraction Managers so Disney typically just keeps the same cast members that have been there 20+ years in the parks along with people that end up leaving the company abruptly within three years on average.

        • Alex the Historian
          Alex the Historian   3 months back

          @Eva Peron I think a friend of mine in security mentioned this to me before, it sounds familiar. But what is a "defacto lead" and what is the difference in responsibility between the "Land Rovers" and the "blue shirts". My understanding was, most of the blue shirts have more in-depth security training and are allowed to break up fights using their hands and maybe pepper spray.

        • Eva Peron
          Eva Peron  3 months back

          The blue shirts just basically showed up along with the metal detectors, and took over as defacto leads. There are still not that many officers cross trained as "Theme Park Land Rovers", most Security is trained only for "Gates" and "Hotels" which is mainly backstage to deal with cast and vendors. In other words, Access Control. Then they have "Motors" which just drive around the parking lots and then you have "Loss Prevention" which are plain clothes officers basically busting shoplifters and following people. The Metal Detector cast members are considered "Security Ii" and are paid less and not allowed to cross train or transfer with regular Security as unofficially, Disney Management considers them them glorified ticket takers, as since bag checks started, they used to be Ticket Takers doing it up until the metal detectors were put in simply because they are paid at a significant less lower rate than Security.

          Alex the Historian   3 months back

          @Eva Peron What part wasn't true. I mean there's two different kinds of security, there's the ones in the white shirts and blue pants, who's main job is to observe, and report -mostly their job consists of customer service because fights like this at Disneyland certainly don't occur every day. And then there's the part of security which are more thoroughly trained and have permission to break up fights like this...and those guys often have shifts where they work as secret security. -That's my understanding of it at least.

        • Eva Peron

        • Alex the Historian
          Alex the Historian   3 months back

          Some people believe that one or two of the tourists that helped subdue the man were secret security. And it very well could have been. Secret security maintains their secrecy at all times.

        So I work in a restaurant & worked in a themed park, movie theater etc. People are "unpredictable" I've seen fights (broken up fights) de escalated situations. These are random acts. I feel relatively safe in these areas workplace or otherwise. Be mindful as a patron (guest @ hotel) walking to car. Any area "not familiar to you" have an "escape route" AstroWorld in Houston,TX had max. capacity of 50k guests. We were over that (crowd control) was a nightmare. There are vids + "common sense" that can guide you in large crowds or isolated areas. BTW we had a "random" guest enter the kitchen where I work last week. It DID get de escalated "thankfully" You can't have key punch, locks etc. when entering/exiting a kitchen to run hot food or drop off dirty dishes. It was sad & unfortunate to witness adults behaving badly. Thanks Alex! BTW as a waiter (I cannot follow a guest out that did NOT pay tab) I have to suffer a write up + it's documented as a shortage. No tip + theft of services. But, store wont prosecute unless bill is over $1,000.

          The first thing I thought when I saw that video was "Man, Alex is right Toon Town is not that great" lol... I know it's not the best response but honestly it's what I thought, trying to laugh my way out of an extremely shocking video. The worst thing about this is not that it happened at Disneyland at all, the worst part is that a grown strong man punched multiple women in the face. If I was there I would have talked to the strongest looking dudes there and tried to make a plan to take that guy out as quick as possible , I could not do it alone. This happened anyways towards the end but would have been nice to happen earlier but at least it still did at a point.

                I would think since society is getting more violent why wouldn’t Disneyland that makes billions of dollars over staff their park security. The average response for a city police officer to a 911 emergency call is around 4-5 minutes and cities are much larger than Disneyland Why wouldn’t Disneyland spend the money to keep their guest safe Disneyland has more money than most cities in CA. Yes Disneyland is safe but why not prepare for the worse. Looks like they are behind the 8 ball and. I am a professional so I know what I’m talking about. Some cities may deploy their SWAT teams once every 5 years but they train for the worse. Disneyland needs to step it up hire more security.

                  Believe it or not. Disneyland is over-staffed on security. I wish I could tell you how many security are working at one time, but it isn't wise for me to do so. The Disneyland security team is the largest staff in the resort next to ride operator. They employs security with guard cards, secret security, lookouts and Anaheim P.D. is stationed at the resort in several areas. It's quite possible that one or two of the people that subdued the guy, were actually secret security. But we'll never know, its not like secret security walks around in a neon vest.

                  A fun story from ~20 years ago.

                  I was in The Mad Hatter next to the teacups looking at the funny hats with my sister. I noticed a young man, probably late teens or early 20s, put on a hat and simply walk out of the store, walking down the path towards Monstro. Before they made it even to the main path in front of Monstro, a man wearing your generic dad-issue khaki shorts and polo shirt walked up next to him and gently took his arm while they continued to walk. By the time they made it to the main path a second man, similarly dressed in generic dad-issue clothing took the other arm and led him over to one of the railings in front of Monstro. One of them took the hat, walked back to the store, and handed it to a clerk inside while 2-3 officially dressed security guards showed up out of the crowd a few moments later, took the young man, and walked off along with one of plain clothes security individuals. The other who returned the hat disappeared back into the crowd.


                  I never really worried about security after that.

                      Alex the Historian Oh, I agree. Things happen, people are human. I know Disney Parks is typically one to learn from mistakes and take better measures to prevent them from happening again, even if it’s unfortunate it had to happen at all. I’m glad it wasn’t any worse than it was.

                      You're right, there is no excuse. However, these things are easier said than done. Disney Parks are the safest resorts and theme parks in the entire world, they have the confidence of the United States government as well as the confidence of the local police departments in handling safety and disaster. But things are far from perfect. This fight in Toontown could have occurred in a moment where it just so happened that security with guard cards just so happened to be handling something in a far enough distance for it to take this long to act. The thing is...any public or private venue in the world, on the scale of Disneyland would have a tough time beating Disney's reaction time to things of this incident. Perfection in safety is a journey, not a destination -by nature.

                    Damned if you do and damed if you don’t with fools on the internet. If security had come and and cracked some heads (like these people deserved) everyone would be whining about how rough security is and how the poor babies brawling didn’t deserve that treatment!

                    I know this all to well from working BOTH security and being a retired cop! Everyone disrespects us for keeping them safe yet the very moment they need help they whine that we aren’t quick enough!

                      Thank you Alex for explaining on how the whole Security thing works. But such an act that had went on is very surprising but yet this is how our society is today. Obviously, this family really needs to get major help. Makes you think what all goes on in their daily lives at home. I think in situation like this or worse, Disneyland needs to have a few Securities with a Qualification Martial Artist background. But yet, solving the situation as peaceful as they can. I know that Disneyland has several Securities with normal clothes walking around and blending in just in case something like this ever occurs or worse. Disneyland is a place where Dreams Come True for most of us and to have a wonderful time with families and friends. Again, I'll be there at Disneyland Resort on July of 28, 29 and 30. Hope to have a chance on meeting you. I think last year or two years ago while you were making your video, you captured my Mom, step Dad and my aunt and uncle along with another aunt on the train that goes all around Disneyland. Fortunately, my Son and I were riding Space Mountain and after we got off the ride I had called my Mom wondering where will they be and she told me that they just got on train and fixing to get off at New Orleans Square and for us to meet them there. Anyways, you made a lot of sense about the Security situation and I thank you for that. God Bless you Alex, hope to see you at Disneyland on the 28, 29 and 30 of this month, July.

                            I'm not saying fire on anyone, just the presence of someone with a firearm. I live in Arizona, guns are are a common site, on citizens, cops, and security. I can tell you that there are armed police and security at our fairgrounds and sporting events and I have never seen this type of behaviors go on.

                                      I think most companies would opt to do that. But I think Disney wanted to instigate a little a scene as possible. I think it's about how both parties look in the eyes of the public. The feuding family made their own decisions, it's up to Disney not to make a situation look worse in the eyes of social and civil perception.

                                    I hope they ban the family for life..there is undercover security in plain clothes everywhere..trust me, someone I knew tried to shoplift...wrong move!

                                      I was just texting Alex saying that I know that Disneyland has Securities walking around with plain clothes blending in just in case something like this or worse ever come up again. I know sometimes it is hard to press through crowds if they ever get an emergency in situation like this. As your walking all around Disneyland, Sometimes people in front of you would be walking slow or even stop right in front of you. Obviously, this family that were yelling at each other and punching at one another must be a normal thing to them back home. I do pray and ask God to bring in Peace and understanding in their family back home in their daily lives and to try and get some kind of help that they need. They probably can't get along anyways back home and wishing that they could, so probably they thought if they make a trip to Disneyland, it might help them to bond closer to one another and eventually things might change, well we saw that it still didn't go well at Disneyland.

                                    To be honest, as long as there is the human aspect involved, no place is entirely safe. Best to just keep a cool head and enjoy the atmosphere... and remind yourself of the steep price tag that you paid to actually get in there in the first place. XD

                                      People who are talking about the time it took for security to respond must never have tried getting around the park on a busy day like this.

                                          Security who can’t touch people. Stuff like this happens when you don’t empower employees. Not necessarily Disney’s fault with all the potential lawsuits

                                            That's true, it also has to do with having a Guard Card, by law in California the only security personnel that can touch people are those who carry Guard Cards. Disney has lots of them...but Guard Cards require rigorous training, and fitness to be able to aquire, and there aren't enough people in the LA/Orange County area to staff Disneyland with the requirements they have.

                                          at least they had the metal check ins,in the parking lot instead at the entrance of the park.i know for experience,anyway i also heard they ban gun toys,even the star wars blasters
                                          that could had been worse

                                            That part has been a HUGE help. They are able to prevent people from bringing weapons, such as knives and firearms. I always feel very safe at Disneyland.

                                          I got an idea, have armed security with guns at Disneyland. Nobody messes with armed security or cops. I have no issue with seeing cops and security with guns. Makes me feel safe because I'm a law abiding citizen.

                                            Over penetration is more likely than crossfire. But either way as a lifetime NRA member, I would not like to see armed security there either.

                                            galiffrey1 With a packed park, people could get hit in the crossfire. If a gun is being fired

                                            That kind of thing, first off is very expensive, because then you'd need to fire all the current security and hire all new guard-card carrying cast members (of which there aren't enough in the LA/Orange County area to staff the Disneyland Resort in the quantities they require on a daily basis), second, anyone who has experience with guns agrees that it does no good to have a gun in a jam packed theme park, anyone can get caught in the crossfire if it is ever used. Personally, I would feel less safe in a theme park with armed security, security is still human, humans can make mistakes.
