Rebel Wilson was banned from Disneyland after taking pictures
The actress says the famous theme park banned her for 30 days after she took “illegal” selfies
Rebel Wilson said she was once banned from the Disneyland theme park in California after taking selfies in what she called a “secret bathroom.”
The actress, who recently announced her engagement to Ramona Agrum with a Disneyland photoshoot posted on Instagram, said she still loves the theme park despite her 30-day ban.
Banned for taking a selfie in a “secret bathroom”
“I took a photo in a secret bathroom inside Disneyland, which is illegal at Disneyland, and I got officially banned for 30 days,” Wilson confessed in a recent episode on ‘The Daily Show’ interviewer Hasan Minhaj.
“They called me up and said, ‘Rebel what 30 days did you not want to come to Disneyland because you’re away filming a movie or something?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, well, June would be fine.’”
While it isn’t exactly clear what Wilson meant by “secret bathroom”, she admits she has no hard feelings following the incident and still loves Disneyland.
“It’s not like I’m obsessed with Disneyland. It’s just, I go there every weekend and every important holiday and every important life event,” the ‘Pitch Perfect’ actress joked.
Disneyland gangs and getting permission to shoot engagement pics
In ‘The Daily Show’ interview, Wilson also spoke about the adult gangs of Disneyland, with names like “the White Rabbits and the Children of Thanos, Coco Locos.”
“They wear matching vests and walk around and do gang stuff around Disneyland,” Wilson explained.
“One of the initiations was you had to steal the apple from the Snow White ride, and the apple kept getting stolen so many times they had to make it a hologram.
“But don’t ask me how I know about Disneyland gangs, because I will not say,” she laughed.
In order to stage the engagement photoshoot with Agrum, Wilson asked Disney CEO Bob Iger for permission to do so.
“He’s the big, big boss and I thought, ‘Well, if he says yes, then it was meant to be, and I was meant to propose that day at Disneyland’, she said of the engagement.
“I had to get special permission to get a special area roped off and get the topiary trees in and, you know, I had a violinist playing like Disney classics, and it was very, really romantic.”
