A guest claimed to have seen rodents crawling around a Disney restaurant and no, it wasn’t the kind of magical conversation from the movies.

While Disneyland is an amazing place filled with super fun and out-of-this-world experiences, sometimes things aren’t always so magical. From overwhelming crowds to fights with cast members, things don’t always match Disney’s description of the perfect vacation destination.
This can be seen in a disturbing experience that a guest recently shared online.
In a post shared on Reddit, a guest opened up about his shocking discovery at a Disneyland restaurant. The full statement reads as follows:
I preface this post by mentioning that I don’t normally say things like that. I think it is a safety and health issue that needs to be mentioned. I don’t post here as much as I used to and don’t know if this will be deleted due to lack of photo evidence, but I mention it anyway.
The Hungry Bear restaurant is currently dealing with a rat infestation. Several of us saw them climbing the walls of the restaurant and heard a multitude of them in the associated building. The CMs also seemed to be aware of this, playing almost as if nothing was happening. It’s not about the CMs. However, there are rumors of rat droppings found near the food preparation at this location. Considering there are tons of other places to eat in the parks, I wouldn’t recommend eating there. I have already contacted Disney about this and have yet to receive a response which I think is ridiculous, but the reason for my message is not that. This is to inform others so they can make informed decisions on whether or not to eat there. I can only hope that Disney takes this seriously and deals with it as soon as possible, because it is a health issue, plain and simple.

As you can read, the guest was eating at The Hungry Bear restaurant when he noticed that rats had apparently taken up residence in this quick-service place. The guest claims to have seen rats climbing the walls and heard them throughout the restaurant.
At the end of the post, the guest says they contacted Disney about this very concerning incident but received no response. One can only hope that if what this Guest is saying is true, Disney will take care of the situation quickly. Guests are always encouraged to report anything they witness, whether it’s poor service, rude guests or, in this case, a rodent infestation.
The Hungry Bear Restaurant is a quick service restaurant at Disneyland and is in the Critter Country area of the park (that name is quite unfortunate in this specific example). Here, customers can find typical theme park dishes such as fried chicken, burgers, and fries. Safer Hungry Bear Restaurant here.
