When Did It Happen?
The incident occurred around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. Upon the arrival of officers, the individual was taken into custody for indecent exposure and for being under the influence of a controlled substance.
As a precaution, he was transported to a hospital. Disneyland has not provided immediate comment as of Monday night.
Photos and videos of the incident circulated on social media, with one post on X stating, “I am on Small World and there was a streaker, I cannot believe this is happening.” The post was shared by a visitor Ashley Esqueda on X.
The photograph attached to the post had so far amassed 2.9 million views. Disneyland officials informed Los Angeles television station that they halted the ride after observing the man disembarking while it was still in motion, shedding his clothes in the process.
The individual then proceeded to wander around the attraction. Videos capturing the man’s exploits circulated on social media, with some visitors expressing disbelief at the unexpected encounter.
Meanwhile, Jonathan McClintock, a spokesperson for the Anaheim Police Department, informed reporters that they responded to the incident around 1:30 p.m.
McClintock explained that their officers assisted Disney security with “a guest who removed his clothes and was naked in or near the It’s A Small World Attraction.” Upon arrival, the 26-year-old man was arrested for indecent exposure and being under the influence of a controlled substance. He was subsequently taken to a hospital as a precaution.
Disneyland representatives did not immediately respond to request for comment. Reports indicated that the unidentified man, who was initially seen in his boxers, was confronted by staff for walking between equipment and animatronic figures near the recreation of the Taj Mahal on the It’s a Small World ride.
Later, he was captured on video walking around the park without any clothing.
Another video depicted the man being escorted away by six security guards, with an onlooker labeling him an “idiot” and pointing out the inappropriateness of his actions in the presence of children.
