No large company can avoid having bad apples, background checks can only tell you what a person has done, they really can't predict what an employee may do in the future, and with as many employees as Disney has, they will have bad apples. Nobody should be surprised, its not as if Disney can monitor and control what their employees do on their own time.
Seems in this article, the place of employment is not relevant, these people would have done the same thing no matter where they worked.
Key point in the article: "None of the cases involved children or teenagers visiting the parks."
There are employees (very small percentage, but it happens) of stores, hospitals, prisons, auto dealers, police stations, dog pounds...just about anywhere people work, that chose to have sex at the workplace. Theme parks are no different.
I'm sorry, but big whoop. People are people and whenever you have more than one employee there's a chance 'it' may happen.

"Oh my stars and garters, Henry! Did you see THIS! I just can't believe CMs would DO this at Disneyland! Is there no end to a person's depravity!" (Henry quickly starts searching the Disney Employment website)
"Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."
Perhaps the minority of individuals that engage in the extra curricular activity are simply attempting to expand and enhance their Disney experience. They likely think of it as private meet and greets.
