With the exception of some parts of Shanghai Disney Resort, all Disney resorts around the world are closed indefinitely due to the threat of the COVID-19 Pandemic. And while discussions are currently happening about when and how Disney theme parks can reopen, right now there is no reopening target in sight. However, that hasn't stopped a few unscrupulous individuals from trying to get past the resort's security guards (who are still working) to get inside the resort while the shutdown is in effect.
Man sneaks into Avengers Campus construction site
One of the first projects to be pushed back by the COVID-19 closures was the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure. And while we're excited to see how this project turns out, it looks like one Anaheim man was a bit too excited to check it out, as earlier this week it was reported that an 18-year-old man was arrested after he jumped over a gate into the back lot of California Adventure. Police officers responded to the scene and found the man in the park around 11:00 PM near a construction site by the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout ride. According to the police report, the suspect's motive may have been to steal items or equipment from the Avengers Campus construction site. As you might expect, after the suspect was arrested he was cited for trespassing and then released.
Unfortunately we have seen previous cases where disreputable individuals have tried to profit off of taking Disney property, but thankfully security guards and police were able to ensure that this individual did not make it out of the park with any Disney property.
And while this seems to be an isolated incident at the Disneyland Resort, there was another break in at another Disney resort thousands of miles away.
