Thank you for posting; it really makes you aware that things can go wrong in a couple of moments; how great that this man got involved...
I wonder what the little girl's parents had to say - and where were they?
I hope this Sicko gets a great LARGE room-mate to pass the time with in prison...
When I was in WDW in Jan/Dec, my brother, dad, little sister and i were walking towards mission space. My sister was making a big deal about how she wasn't going on MIssion Space because she thought she would die. I noticed a man following us, and as we started to walk towards Mission Space, he did too. As my sister walked toward the gift shop, he then tunred and followed her. My brother and dad had no idea it was going on. I told my dad that the man was following my sister. We went into the gift shop and he was obviously following and watching my little sister. I grabbed her and we left the store. My dad tried to start a fight with the man, mentioned the situation to a Cast Member, and we immediatly left Epcot.
Its really a sad situation that this stuff is possible in the parks. We're from across the country and get to WDW once every 5-10 years. You HAVE to watch who's around you all the time there. Its horrible.
it's a shame that this kind of stuff happens but let's face it, pedophiles and predators migrate to where kids go and where do kids love to go but theme parks. orlando definitely has their share of them. it must be a mecka for their deviant desires, the only other place that I can think of that has more theme parks in a small area is california. and of course there is the original disney park. add to that, a fact that people tend to let their guards down wen they come to WDW because it is so family friendly and they are on vacation and having fun. It's really a wonder to me that we don't have more stories like this one.

The sad reality is that I'm sure many stories end up differently than this one. Not everyone pays attention to children, and most especially don't pay attention to other people's children, and so there are very few hero stories that are able to be told like this one. Unfortunately, there could be many untold occurences with these creeps that a child would be too scared to tell his or her parents
