Remember all those layoffs? Security was hit hard apparently. Motion detectors and cameras do little if nobody is monitoring them.
Remember the big family fight in Disneyland's Toontown in the summer of 2019?
It went on for about five minutes before the first Security guard showed up, and then all she did was stand in the background watching it. In the meantime, you had a serious brawl with men punching their wives and it took multiple random park guests to get involved and try and subdue the attackers.
Over 5 minutes later and finally a few more security guards showed up, and all they did was try and keep people back from jumping into the fight to protect the women who were getting punched by their husbands and literally dragged through the streets of Toontown. A couple of theme park managers also showed up and did practically nothing.
A single, lone elderly custodian stepped in around the 3 minute mark and tried to get one of the men to calm down and step back. He was the only CM who actually tried to do anything. Otherwise, the entire brawl went on for a long time in the middle of Toontown on a busy summer day at Disneyland when they had FULL STAFFING, and it still took Disneyland Security 10 minutes to arrive and respond effectively to the situation. And their response was to merely follow the group as they left Toontown. It was a pathetic joke on the part of Disneyland's Security team, and it all got major media play nationally and in Southern California.
And we would expect this same Security organization to somehow have overnight strike teams in place ready to respond immediately for some kid sneaking into an abandoned park in the middle of the night? Give me a break.
