brawl broke out between two families at Walt Disney World on Monday after one of the families asked another one to move in order to take a picture with the 100th-anniversary sign. 

Orange County deputies responded to a battery report at Disney’s Magic Kingdom theme park in Florida at around 2:30 p.m. local time, the Sheriff’s Office said. 

A video of the incident captured by a bystander shows one of the families wanting to take a picture in front of the 100th Anniversary sign, placed to commemorate the 100 years of the Walt Disney Company. Another family then moves to the same area where the first family was standing. 

The first family asks the second one if they could move so they could take a picture when suddenly a member of the second family began punching one of the other members of the other family in the face. A fight ensued with family members from both families throwing punches at each other and cursing. 

Disney employees can be seen running to stop the fight while calling for backup. At least one person had to receive medical treatment after receiving injuries from the fight, according to Orange County Deputies. The person declined to press charges. At least two people were asked to leave the theme park. 

"Did you see how it broke out?" a person can be heard saying in the video. "I was just walking right here, and I saw it just happening."

The fight comes after Disney issued a warning last year against unruly behavior at its parks due to a rise in violent behavior. Last July, a fight between two families in Fantasyland involving at least ten people led to two arrests. The incident was also captured on video.
