    Late news tonight reported a guest choking a bus driver outside of DHS. Apparently, the guest was outraged because the driver wouldn't allow him and his family on the packed bus. Witnesses say the guest "threw his baby" at the driver!

    The driver is on paid leave while Disney investigates.

    Scary stuff.

    I have to say this. Disney used to do much better at crowd control. There were CMs to keep order, and there were continuously running buses so guests knew that it was virtually no wait for the next bus.

    Now, the lines are long at closing, guest push and shove and clearly fight to get on the transport.

    Disney cannot control an individual's behavior, but they can control the flow of the crowd...

    At any rate, no word on the baby. :(

    People have lost their minds apparently, to endanger your own child?

    I was sent a link to a Youtube video of this incident. It was unbelievable. It must have been very scary for children to witness.
    I do hope that the passenger was arrested.
    Those poor drivers are very undervalued by too many passengers, considering the difficult job that they do.

    WHAT?

    Oh My God


    Although I agree with you Tink that it is a NUISANCE to leave a park after closing, there is no excuse for choking a bus driver, let alone throwing a BABY.... poor baby...

    I have always found the drivers to be as helpful as they can

    I'm sorry, I don't usually condone violence but someone should have laid that guy out.

    The thing is too, because of this incident he probably got back to his room later than if he would have just waited for the next bus. Idiot!

    Not to mention all the other people who were on the bus, and who were waiting.

    Haven't heard any more about it today, but then haven't been home all day until just now.
