    Disney kicks out youth teams for fighting - Florida Today, 12/10/07

    http://www.floridatoday.com/apps/pbc.../71210053/1086


    Three teams competing in the Pop Warner Super Bowl Competition were evicted from Walt Disney World’s All-Star Resort over the weekend because of a fighting incident at the hotel.

    “This was unfortunate, but with thousands of guests staying at the resort we have to maintain a safe environment for everyone,” Jacob DiPietre, a spokesman for Walt Disney World, said Monday.

    “All participants were made aware of our strict zero-tolerance policy regarding any physical disturbances. Any teams involved in fighting are subject to disqualification and eviction. We were in direct consultation with both Pop Warner officials and law enforcement throughout the course of the event.”

    Article from News 13 - December 10, 2007
    Kids Thrown Out of Disney.

    A group of young athletes was kicked out of Walt Disney World in the middle of the night Saturday.

    Disney made the decision to kick out three teams participating in the Pop Warner Super Bowl competition -- two from Hawaii and one from Baltimore -- because of a fight between some of their athletes.

    According to Disney, the policy written for group packages states everyone will be forced to leave even if one member of the party is involved in a violent act on property.
    This is interesting news since the Pop Warner group does tend to attract quite rowdy visitors to the parks, especially during their convention times.

    Video is included at the site as well.

    This is interesting...I don't think DLR management would have had the stones to kick out a group like this from one of the Disnelyand Resort Hotels.
    -"Enjoy the rest of your stay here at Disneyland, where all of your dreams come true...well except for two of them, short lines and cheap food."

    Well WDW is under really strict scrutiny of late due to the DTD incidents and some other things.

    Kudos to them for not bowing to a large client and enforcing the rules.
