Ala. woman charged with beating woman in line for Disney ride

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) An Alabama woman has been charged with beating and kicking a woman she said cut in line at a Walt Disney World attraction, authorities said.

Victoria Walker, 51, of Anniston, was released from Orange County jail after posting a $4,000 bond Tuesday, nearly two months after the altercation while in line for the Mad Tea Party.

Yeah, I know--"what are the odds!?"

Walker was with her 11-year-old daughter when she yelled obscenities at Aimee Krause, 35, of Clemont, Fla., and shoved two children with Krause, according to a sheriff's report. Walker grabbed Krause from behind and began beating her until witnesses pulled the women apart, the document said. [...]

"It's a small *&^%$(in' world after alllll, so get the ~!@$* outta my waaaaaay...."

Biggest surprise? There is no mention of alcohol.

Well, yeah, it was the "Mad Tea Party". Maybe they could just change the name of the ride to "Spinny Nauseating Tea Cups". Both my wife and I declined riding it when we were there a few years ago, but fortunately Li'l Tater was able to with some other little girl and her mom.

I take it the mother and daugher in question weren't Ms. Walker and her daughter.

I think they were Japanese and didn't speak English all that well, so Li'l Tater just sat there and looked over at us occasionally. It was interesting to see how many visitors there were from the Far East. It's not surprise Disney hustled to open up a park in Hong Kong.
