‘Gossip Girl’ star Blake Lively says she went to ‘Disney prison’ when she was a child
What is Disney prison? Blake Lively has revealed what happened to her when she broke some rules
“Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively once said that she was taken to “Disney prison” when she was a child because she and her sister broke one of Disney’s rules.
Why did Blake Lively go to Disney prison?
InsideTheMagic — a Disney news and rumors blog — recently highlighted an old 2009 interview between Blake Lively and David Letterman, in which Lively told Letterman she went to Disney’s security holding after she violated the rules.
Per The Orange County Register, Lively said she grew up in California and would visit Disneyland twice per week. She said her mom would take her out of school so they could go to Disneyland.
- “But I was banned from Disneyland for a year because I went to Disney prison.”
Lively said she and her sister were leaving the park one day. She received a stamp to signal that she had left, according to The Orange County Register.
She said she knew of a trick where you could spray hairspray on the stamp and transfer to someone else. So then she and her sister tried to enter the park again together.
- But Disney security caught them, she said, and took them to what she described as “Disney prison.”
- “So we go downstairs in Disneyland — it’s all white rooms, everyone is dressed in all white, the furniture is all white, and they just interrogated us. … It was really scary and traumatizing.”
Is Disney prison real?
It’s unclear — but it appears to go by the name “Disney jail” as well. Per Cheatsheet, you can be sent to Disney prison for shoplifting, inappropriate behavior, sneaking into the park and drinking too much alcohol.
- There have been many reports from guests that they were sent to a Disney prison, too, according to BuzzFeed News.
One former Goofy cast member told PopSugar that the Disney jail exists at Walt Disney World, too.
- “It’s just a room over the candy shop on main street. There’s an officer back there that takes people to the local jail on 33rd street in Orlando.”
