A Disneyland park guest in Anaheim, California was arrested and escorted off the property by local authorities after stripping off their clothes during the It’s A Small World attraction.
The incident happened on Sunday afternoon during the busy Thanksgiving holiday weekend. A Disneyland Resort representative told Deadline that the guest got off the ride while it was in motion and the attraction was stopped when park operators were made aware of the situation.

After the guest was detained, the person was removed from the property altogether after being booked by the Anaheim Police Department.
“It’s A Small World” was shut down for about an hour as park operators inspected the attraction. No guests were harmed physically during the incident and the ride resumed operations at about 3 p.m. local time.
Video of the incident went viral on social media with clips being shared. One video shows the guest walking through the sets of “It’s A Small World” without a shirt on.
