Disney travel agent Bren Ladd visited Magic Kingdom with her husband on April 23.
While leaving the theme park, she filmed an employee attempting to remove a snake from the entrance.
She spoke with Insider about the incident and the calm she said everyone was hanging on to.
If you’re looking to experience the wildlife at Disney World, Animal Kingdom is the place to go. But sometimes you will also find unexpected creatures in Magic Kingdom.
Bren Ladd, a 42-year-old travel agent, was visiting the theme park in Orlando, Florida, with her husband on April 23 for a “kid-free weekend,” as she told Insider. They were leaving Magic Kingdom when she noticed “a small circle starting to form” near the entrance to the park.
“I noticed this amazing actor trying to get a snake away from the turnstiles,” she said. “She didn’t seem fazed by it – she probably already has.”
A video of the incident, which Ladd filmed and then shared on TikTok on April 29, was viewed nearly 2 million times on Thursday.
“It was okay and people weren’t freaking out,” Ladd added. “I just wanted to capture how the whole interaction went.”
She went on to say that the Disney employee quickly brought the snake into a thicket, which led to the crowd dispersing.
Still, Ladd doesn’t lose sight that this viral video of his might scare off some people from the theme park.
“I find it ironic,” she said. “I started my TikTok page to get my name out there as a Disney trip planner. But my video that went viral will probably put people off booking their trip or going to Florida in general.”
Of course, snakes and other animals, including alligators, are common in Florida.
In fact, around this time last year, another Disney park goer filmed the moment a group of Animal Kingdom gorillas discovered a squirming snake in their enclosure.
