A brawl broke out at Disney World over a photo opportunity because the happiest place on Earth is the perfect spot to have a fight, apparently.

Even if you aren't a huge Disney fan, the chances are that at some point in your life, you will at least consider going to Disney World to see what the hype is about.

Though Disney is generally directed at kids, that's not to say that there isn't stuff there for adults to enjoy - even if that involves having photos with the characters.

Often dubbed the happiest place on Earth, it appears as if that doesn't matter to some people as they are willing to have a punch-up in front of other families.

Fox 35 Orlando obtained the shocking footage of the brawl, which allegedly started over a photo opportunity - because Disney only has one, right?

Watch the shocking footage below:

The incident took place at around 2:30 PM on Monday (May 15) at Disney's Magic Kingdom park in Florida.

The argument broke out when a larger family arrived at the scene of a smaller family standing where they wanted to take a photo.

After the two groups argued over who has the right to take the photo, a member of the larger family lashed out with a punch which resulted in the fight reaching its climax.

During the chaos, one person can be heard asking others how it broke out, to which someone responded: "I was just walking right here and I saw it just happening."

It is reported that a person was injured during the scrap and had to receive medical attention, and two members of the larger group were escorted out of the park.

This isn't the only questionable thing involving Disney right now, as a teacher was reportedly investigated after she showed a movie to her class.

The teacher, Jenna Barbee, received backlash after showing her class of 10 and 11-year-olds the animated flick, Strange World.

Despite insisting that the movie was used as an educational tool about the environment, the teacher explained on TikTok that she was reported by a mother on the school board for "indoctrination".

She is now under investigation for potentially having violated the Parental Rights in Education Act, known widely as the "don’t say gay" law, which was introduced by Florida's Republican governor Ron DeSantis last year.

The teacher explained that she didn't choose to put on the movie because it had a gay character, as she explained: "[I] have a lot of fifth grade students who have come to me this year, long before showing this movie, talking about how they’re part of [the LGBTQ] community.

"It’s not a big deal to me. So I just said, OK, awesome, I’m not pushing anything, just being accepting. That’s what I do."

Who would have thought Disney would be so controversial? Let's just all agree to not have a massive brawl in front of Mickey Mouse.
