Everyone knows that Disney is dubbed The Happiest Place On Earth. But did you know it's also one of the strangest places in California too? Thanks to some guests, there are some pretty wild tales out on the internet about vacations gone wrong, the Matterhorn falling apart during a ride, epic fights that broke out in Disneyland - and even cannibalism. Yes, you read that right. These are the weirdest things to happen at Disneyland California.

A Man Escaped From A Moving Space Mountain Ride

On February 1, 2019, one man decided it would be a good idea to pull off the ultimate Space Mountain escape while the ride was moving. During a slower part of the coaster, he climbed out of the car and attempted to hide, but was caught by Disneyland security.

According to The Orange County Register, Disneyland officials reported that the ride's lap bar restraint was unmoved and the man "used force to maneuver his way out of the vehicle." Thankfully, no one was hurt in the process, but Space Mountain was shut down for days after the incident.

Duck Cannibalism May Have Occurred

Lines for the Ferris Wheel at California Adventure are infamously long, so it's natural to be stoked when you reach the front of the line. Think about all the park views you can see from the top!

Well, one girl saw something she probably wishes she could unsee. While riding the famous wheel, she witnessed a duck eating another dead duck, citing "Cannibalism at the 'Happiest Place on Earth.'" *Shudders in horror*

200 + Feral Cats Roam the Park Every Day

If you've ever seen stray cats wandering around Disneyland, you're not the only one who's been concerned. Apparently, there's a reason for the park's massive homeless cat population. Since Disneyland has problems with rodents, they keep hundreds of (spayed and neutered) cats on the premises to *ahem* control the situation. They're feral though, so don't try to pet them.

Someone Hung Up A Giant Trump 2020 Sign

Come on guys, let's not politicize Disneyland. We can't believe someone actually went there. Earlier this year, a man was kicked out of the park for unveiling a giant Trump 2020 banner across the Mark Twain riverboat. Smh.

A Family Started A Fistfight in Toontown

An ugly brawl broke out in Toontown when a family began throwing punches at each other in the middle of the park. A bystander recorded the whole thing and the YouTube video has nearly 6 million views and counting. Sheesh.

A Huge Chunk Fell off the Matterhorn

It could have crushed a guest! A huge chunk of the Matterhorn crumbled and fell off the famous California attraction. According to The Orange County Register, the fallen piece was the size of a bedroom door.

A Woman Pulled A Used Tampon Out From Her Dress In Public

We wish this didn't actually happen. But unfortunately, there are just some things you can't unsee. During her visit to Disneyland, a woman sitting on the benches at Main Street spotted another lady slip her hand up her dress, pull out a used tampon, and continue to walk with it in her hand.

A Woman Scattered the Ashes of Her Dead Loved One Inside the Haunted Mansion

Ride operators caught a woman throwing her son's ashes around inside the Haunted Mansion. The ride was shut down and employees had to search for the ashy remains.
