Walt Disney World has a strict “do not feed the animals” policy. Apparently, that won’t stop the animals from helping themselves in some cases. One squirrel in Hollywood Studios has decided to take matters into his own hands by heading straight into a store and shoplifting candy. We can’t blame the furry fella since he doesn’t know what he’s doing. One thing is for sure though, it’s entertaining to watch!
Reddit user whitshoespam posted the video evidence to social media for all of us to enjoy. Honestly, they had to because or else we may not have believed it! The video was posted five days ago with the caption “This squirrel stealing candy at HS always makes me smile. The manager said, “He’s isn’t supposed to do that!” ?❤️” One wonders how often this little guy helps himself to the Mickey lollipops and whether or not he has a candy preference yet.
I guess it all goes to show that Walt Disney World is a magical place. Did Snow White train this squirrel to fetch her afternoon snack? We may never know. Either that or he’s just a regular squirrel who is a Disney food fan like the rest of us. We hope he enjoys his foodstuffs even if he didn’t come by it honestly. But please remember that if you ever experience wildlife up close at Disney, they are still feral creatures and they need their space. Let a squirrel steal his candy in peace, then post the video for us to see!
Check out the video for yourself and tell us what you think! Do you have any funny animal encounter stories from Walt Disney World? We can’t get enough.
