Soccer star Alex Morgan, others kicked out of Disney World

ORLANDO - Three Orlando City soccer players, including U.S. women’s national team standout and Orlando City Pride star Alex Morgan, were kicked out of Disney World after officials say they became verbally aggressive with park security and other guests.

An Orange County Sheriff’s Office report says Orlando City Lions players Donald Toia and Giles Barnes, along with Morgan, were all escorted out of Disney World’s Epcot park on Sunday. Toia’s wife was also ejected. The report says the group began arguing with other guests and workers after Barnes cut in line at the United Kingdom pavilion’s pub.

Epcot Center managers called deputies to confront several individuals who were "impaired and verbally aggressive," the Orlando Sentinel reported.

On Sunday, Morgan posted a photo of herself, other soccer players and friends outside an Epcot Center restaurant.

The Orlando City Soccer Club issued a statement Tuesday saying that it is aware of the incident. Both the Lions of Major League Soccer and the Pride of the National Women’s Soccer League are out of action this week for international break.
