Disney is facing a lawsuit from a park-goer who alleges she was served breakfast at Magic Kingdom that contained broken glass and was injured from consuming it.
The plaintiff, Mary Brumbaugh of Illinois, sued Disney for negligence and exposing her to a dangerous situation. The lawsuit alleges she was injured after biting into shards of glass in eggs she was served at Cinderella’s Royal Table, an eatery based inside the Cinderella Castle at Disney World in 2019, according to Florida Politics.

Brumbaugh alleged in the suit that biting into the breakfast dish fractured two of her dental crowns and brought about “extensive bleeding” in the her mouth. This allegedly forced the woman to spend a considerable amount of money on medical bills paid out to both her dentist and family doctor to remedy the injuries, according to the report.
