What is the Most Commonly Stolen Item at Disneyland?
When Disneyland’s Snow White’s Scary Adventure opened up in Anaheim, California, the most prized possession became Snow White’s apple. According to reports, guests would try to steal the apple from Snow White’s hand to take it home as a souvenir. Park guests had become so successful at stealing the forbidden fruit that Cast Members had to pick a basket of apples nearby to replace the stolen goods several times a day! When Disney’s Imagineers reinvented the attraction into what is now Snow White’s Enchanted Wish, they also replaced the physical apple with a projection of the apple. However, the apples of the old attraction still pop up from time to time online for sale and are a scorching commodity for Disney Fanatics.
While stealing the apple from Snow White’s hands seems like harmless fun, in California, the Disney fanatics who stole the apple could be charged with the crime of Petty Theft (PC 484(a)). Petty Theft is a misdemeanor that can carry up to 6 months in County Jail. And those who buy the stolen apple could be facing even more significant criminal exposure with a charge of Receiving Stolen Property (PC 496). Receiving Stolen Property could be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the value of the magical apple, and has a maximum sentence of 3 years in county jail!
