Not book your Fastpass+ reservations 30 days in advance? (Okay, 60 if you're staying at a Disney hotel.) Not calling six months in advance for dining reservations? Not getting up early to rope-drop the park to bag a few other popular attractions before your FP+ reservations kick in?
Those all are rookie mistakes, but none of them will sink your vacation. To do that, you must enter the realm of the truly foolish — doing something that even the almost-always-accommodating Disney will not forgive.
Such as hopping over a fence and trying to climb the Tree of Life at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
You guys thought drunk people climbing the Mexico Pavilion was bad? Apparently 4 people tried to climb the Tree of Life at DAK today. pic.twitter.com/YDQubwpyOO— Nick Cucerzan (@NCucerzan) December 3, 2017
As the tweet mentioned, someone tried the same thing at Epcot's Mexico pavilion a couple years ago, climbing up the facade's steps for the benefit of a pal's social media video hit count.
From chatter on social media, Disney security arrived on the scene swiftly this time, and apprehended at least one of the Tree of Life climbers. No confirmation of anything from Disney yet, but it's hard not to imagine that such a transgression would not result in being escorted from the park, forfeiting your ticket and getting a lifetime ban from Disney Parks, to boot. Fences are there for reasons, and parks don't look kindly upon people who voluntarily put their safety and the safety of others at risk.
But, hey, at least they took one for the team and provided something for us to point at, roll our eyes, and either laugh at or get indignant about. People be crazy.Tweet
