Not so Happy; Place on Earth

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Cinderella, Snow White, Tinkerbell and other fictional fixtures of modern-day childhood were handcuffed, frisked and loaded into police vans Thursday at the culmination of a labor protest that brought a touch of reality to the Happiest Place on Earth.

The arrest of the 32 protesters, many of whom wore costumes representing famous Disney characters, came at the end of an hour-long march to Disneyland's gates from one of three Disney-owned hotels at the center of a labor dispute.

Those who were arrested sat in a circle on a busy intersection outside the park holding hands until they were placed in plastic handcuffs and led to two police vans while hundreds of hotel workers cheered and chanted. traumatizing is that, seeing your favorite Disney character get arrested. Might as well get a gun and shoot Santa for god sakes.

btw don't people work anyone, I mean really who has the time to get dressed up like mickey mouse (IN THE HOT ASS SUN) and get arrested....
