Week Before Thanksgiving News Update

Tuesday afternoon led for some major excitement at All Star Movies Resort. Callers called in a bomb threat for the front desk of the resort prompting the Lobby to be evacuated and the resort to be put on lockdown. Osceola County Sherrifs and Disney Security swept the area but found nothing and sounded the all clear about an hour later. Reportedly a call came thru that sounded like a couple of teenage boys calling in to claim that Goofy had molested there son. When the Cast Member asked for their names to start getting information they reported said there was a bomb at the front desk and hung up. The Cast Member reports she heard them giggle as they disconnected. Regardless of it sounding like a prank The Sherrifs and Disney Security took the matter seriously and checked it out.
