    Witnesses Sought In Moms' Disney Line Fight

    POSTED: 11:38 am EDT August 24, 2007
    UPDATED: 11:43 am EDT August 24, 2007

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- Detectives investigating a fight between two mothers while in line at a tea cup ride at Walt Disney World in May are now asking for witnesses to come forward if they saw the incident.

    Victoria Walker, 52, of Alabama, was arrested on suspicion she beat and choked Aimee Krause of Clermont because she apparently believed Krause was allowed ahead of her while waiting to board the "Mad Tea Party" ride.

    Witnesses said Walker became enraged after the victim and her children were allowed ahead of her at the "Mad Tea Party' ride in May.

    Walker was questioned after the incident and allowed to return to her Alabama home.

    However, when a judge noticed how severe the victim's injuries were, he signed an arrest warrant for Walker.

    It took deputies nearly two months to catch up with the woman but she was picked up on a warrant in Alabama and transported back to Orange County.

    She bonded out of jail shortly after her arrest.

    Investigators are asking any witnesses to the event call the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

    I am really curious as to why witness names & info wasn't taken at the scene.

    Good luck finding anyone who wants to come forward even on the off chance they should find out witnesses are needed!

    yea, I saw it all..........you see first this Beauty comes by with these 7 short miners following her...singin' some Hi-Ho song....then that first lady looks over those dwarfs and when she did, that second lady, she cuts right in front of her....well, next, they went to swingin' at each other...then a couple of clueless dudes named Tweedle Dee and Dum go runnin' for cover and some big tall Goofy dog tries to jump betwixt the two women and stop them. Next this Buzz dude flies in to save the Goofy character and starts hollerin' that he is gonna kick their ***** to infinity and beyond. Before I know it some Pirates were there and they broke into a bigger fight. The next thing you know there was an innocent little bear all Poohed out on the ground with honey split all over the place. I figured I'd try to leave because I didn't want to be no witness to it...the commotion sounded like a freight train rumbling by and then I realized it was just some Mickey mouse with some mouse chick with him........unbelievably the Mouse grabbed the instigator of it all and tossed her all the way to Main Street. It was just then that a bunch of hillbilly bears had just finished their jamboree and started to tearing at the ole gal. By now she had enough and was runnin' for the front gates. The last thing I saw was a bunch of big ole parade brooms sweepin' her right out. I turned back around and low and behold some Prince Charming fellow had scooped up the injured lady and took her to the castle and there she stayed all night.

    Of course I heard she got tossed out cause some family had been selected to take her place for the evening!

    Other than that, I didn't see a thing, officer.

    Now THAT would be a Disney-style throwdown. :lmao: :lmao:

    We like to think of Disney as a place where we are insulated from the real world. The problem is, the real world just keeps buying tickets and coming anyway. Sigh.

    Would the prosecution fly the witnesses down to Orlando and while there the witnesses could, after testifying, enjoy some more days at Disney?

    It would be hard to get anyone to come forward if they had to get themselves to Orlando to answer a summons on their own.

    I thought I had read somewhere that Tigger was a witness so they didn't need anybody else's statement. But it turned out he was discredited due to allegations of a shady criminal past including molestation and assault. Now authorities need to hunt down other witnesses to build a case.

    If I remember the story correctly her defence involves taking the word MAD literally and it is Disney's fault for her actions because if they didn't want people to get mad they shouldn't call the attraction the MAD Tea Party.

    I did some more research and found out that another witness did come forward and he too was discredited. It sees a one Donald Fauntleroy Duck was there and did see what happened. However during the investigation it was discovered that Mr. Duck was not wearing any pants at the time and therefore became a liability to the prosecution's case and as a result, was released. I will continue my fact finding mission and report back here what I discover.
    Good bye for now, I am off to Google!

    There are two separate threads on this board in regards to this case – sadly I can’t find them or I’d link them so you could read everything.

    The first thread was posted at the time this occurred. For some reason Disney didn’t immediately call the police and the victim and her friend was extremely upset over how Disney handled the situation. It sounded as if it was being blown off by Disney. If I recall correctly, most people on the DIS – based on very little information since the police were not really involved in this at first and we were only getting a little info from the victim herself – I recall the general consensus on this board was negative towards the victim – basically saying that she must be entirely at fault (being a line cutter) and was blowing the ordeal out of proportion. Again, this is what I recall from the original thread and when the second thread was posted months later I unsuccessfully attempted to search for the original thread to see if my recollections were correct.

    A few months later (ok, I don't recall the exact time frame this has all occured in), when the judge issued the arrest warrant for the attacker, a new thread was started and posted on by people who either a) wasn’t a part of the original thread or b) since there was time in-between when the incident took place and when the judge filed the arrest warrant didn’t realize that it was the same case. By then we were given a little more information such as the victim was just following CM’s instructions that caused her to be a line cutter and the injuries were more severe than what was originally made of them by the media. I recall the posts on here being much more positive to the victim with that new information.

    Now we have this third thread. If anyone is really good at searching – could you find the other two threads and tie this all in together? Jonestavern – I’m sure that the original thread has enough info to answer exactly why names and witnesses weren’t given at the time of the incident as that thread contains discussions based upon what little information was given out at that time of the incident.

    OK. At first I was very skeptical of this story. But after an extensive investigation I believe Goofy-Blade was there and should be subpoenaed. I have found that all those that were later identify in this account were there but are unable to provide testimony.
    First, apparently the woman was identified as Ms. Snow White. The miners too were questioned but admitted they only knew what they had heard in the lunch room and were unaware of the incident while it was accruing. That leaves Goofy, Tweedle Dee and Dum, and the Pirates. The individual identified in the story as “Buzz” is believed to be Buzz Light-year. However the statement given indicates that Mr. Light-year arrived too late to offer any testimony as to how the Malay started. Papers released by authorities indicated that Goof’s , as well as Tweedle Dee and Dum’s statement was determined to be “unusable” Although individuals who are mentally impaired are not excluded from testifying after an in-depth interview all three were determined to be “mentally incompetent” to testify. Little details were released but it appears their testimony was at the least contradictory and at times incoherent.
    The pirates that were fingered as being there and might have seen something of value unfortunately went back the Caribbean. Documents have been filed to extradite them but the process is taking longer than expected because most could not be identified by name. Many were known simply by aliases.
    As mentioned in the witness account another victim was identified. Winnie The Pooh could only produce the address of Mr. Sanders and was not much help. According to the transcript Mr. Pooh spent several hour tapping his forehead and muttering “think, think, think” only stopping to ask for honey.
    All others mentioned arrived too late to offer any credible testimony as to the timeline of the events leading up to the incident.
    Goofy-Blade you really should come forward and help investigators sort this mess out.
    It would be the right thing to do.

    I just love, love,love this site. I've read posts about being in need of witnesses. I leave in two weeks with my 4 yr old twins. As a mother, if my kids would have witnessed something like this and this 'wicked witch' ruined the day for us, I would've gone Buzz all over her ****. I'm so glad someone here has the talent to make us all chuckle a bit over something really sad. Your post is absolutely the BEST thing I've read. Let's hope it all works out the way it should and no other family has to endure such a sad incident from the outside world creeping in to the happiest place on earth. The loser, should do their time on the tea cups with no potty breaks or barf bag-just ride out their time. Just my two cents worth.
