Sexual assault report stirs Disney World cast
Here's the story that's been roiling the Walt Disney World cast over the past couple days:
A college program cast member (they called 'em MKCPs back in my day) reported that she was raped by several men while she was walking home from a friend's apartment in the housing complex where Disney puts up the college program employees.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office is investigating and Disney said that it is cooperating with the investigation.
Here's a brief from the Orlando Sentinel.
Don't have anything at all to add here -- it's been ages since I worked down there and I never was an MKCP. But the story's got so much buzz around the CM community, that I thought it worth mentioning here.
No flame wars in the comments, please, but if anyone has anything informative to add, feel free.
Wow! I was actually thinking about doing that program and they boast about how safe it is! I wonder if it was somebody inside the complex (like they live there) because I would guess that the Disney security would be pretty tight!
There are actions like this that "stir" the Central Florida community every day. Attaching Disney's name to it is completely for the purpose of selling newspapers and ad space. No hype of this nature occurs with every other crime in the area. You will find bad people everywhere. Even at Disney. It's not their fault.
I've looked at other reports from different sources. The four men involved are part of Disney's International Program, French in ethnicity, likely working for the France pavilion at Epcot. I entertained the idea they might also be in training for work at Disneyland Paris, but I think that by now, DLP has their own CM training program. The investigation is still ongoing.
As the report states this was just another false rape allegation.
