When Parental Judgement Takes A Holiday

Hong Kong's Disneyland has been sold out for the last eight days and some out-of-control parents aren't taking "closed" for an answer:
Angry families stormed fences at Hong Kong Disneyland and tossed their children over gates Thursday after the theme park sold out for an eighth consecutive day, according to a Local 6 News report.

The uproar outside Disney's theme park followed similar chaos on Wednesday when hundreds of disgruntled visitors, many having made the trip from mainland China, were furious that their Lunar New Year vacation to Hong Kong was ruined.

The visitors held flexible tickets that were valid for six months but did not guarantee entry on any day, said Betty Law, a spokeswoman for Hong Kong Disneyland.

The park was sold out on Thursday, Law said, as tourist traffic surged during the annual peak travel season in Hong Kong and mainland China.
I wonder if that mob could've been bought-off with a few bundles of Disney Dollars?
