A violent brawl at the happiest place on Earth may now end with criminal charges, after a video of the melee went viral.
The incident went down Saturday night in the Toontown section of Disneyland. According to witnesses, it began with an argument between family members and escalated into an all-out brawl.
According to the Anaheim Police Department, “All participants in the fight were identified after the fight broke out and APD responded to a call of a fight in Disneyland Park. “
A spokesperson for APD continued, “When we arrived, the parties were separated. It was determined they were all family members who were related to one another and they were all uncooperative and did not want anything done.”
We’re told a report was taken and everyone involved in the fight was asked to leave the park.
The video, which has been viewed thousands of times on YouTube, shows the altercation between two men, which quickly spirals out of control and ends with women being punched and spit on, and one of the aggressors getting choked out by a bystander.
Several people in the park filmed the fight on cellphones as Disneyland employees and security scrambled to break up the incident.
The police say, “There was no video available at the time. We became aware of the video late last night. Now that we have the video, detectives will be following up to see if any criminal charges can be filed.”
The video will be a key piece of evidence for investigators and say, “Now we can use the video to piece together who did what to who since none of them would cooperate at the time.”
Unclear at this time how many people involved in the fight may face possible arrest.
Disney officials said of the incident, “We do not condone this behavior.”
The fight at the park was a moment of negativity for an otherwise fun holiday weekend. Disneyland was also visited by several celebrities during 4th of July, including Gigi and Bella Hadid, and JoJo Siwa.

Bella and Gigi didn’t have to worry about any security issues during their trip to Disneyland, because they were rolling around the park with an impressive security force.
One fan shared some photos of the group and even got a stare down from one of the guards.
