Man Caught Using Stolen Disney iPad for Unauthorized Tours and Line Skipping at Walt Disney World

Man Caught Using Stolen Disney iPad for Unauthorized Tours and Line Skipping at Walt Disney World. A report from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirms an unidentified man was caught using a stolen iPad from the Disney Parks to give unauthorized tours and allowing groups to skip lines while visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios on June 4th.

The report details the account sharing that when an Orange County Officer arrived at the park an off-duty explained that a 30-year-old man had been taken backstage into an office with a Disney manager and would be trespassed from Disney property. The manager claimed that, over the course of several days, his team became aware of unauthorized overrides on reservations in the Disney World app, meant for employee-only use.

According to the Disney leader, a private company app was used to get to the front of an attraction line without having to stand in line. Only authorized Disney Cast Members may use the app for qualifying guests and said app is only installed on devices owned by Disney World and are not available to the public.

After noticing the 30-year-old man leading a group in an unauthorized tour at Hollywood Studios and witnessing him lead the group to the front of the line of an unspecified attraction they had the reservations canceled before the group reached the attraction boarding area. The guest immediately left the park and was followed by the off-duty officer and the Disney manager, who asked to speak to him.

The man shared that he worked with “A Class” company and when asked if he had any Disney-owned property on him he claimed he did and handed over the stolen iPad which he picked up from the backseat of his car. He then claimed he was given the device to use by the owner of “A Class” company, named “Tony”.

When confronted by the on-duty officer and asked about the situation the unnamed man claimed he did not know the iPad was stolen. Upon further investigation, the iPad was confirmed to be missing but was never filed as a stolen item by Disney. It is currently unknown which location or department the iPad was stolen from on Disney Property.

The 30-year-old man was issued a trespass warning and banned from all Disney-owned properties.
