A Vermont couple has filed a federal lawsuit against Disney Cruise Line for $20 million, alleging that their three-year-old daughter was sexually assaulted by an older child at a daycare facility on the ship as a result of poorly trained employees and understaffing at the daycare.
In the lawsuit, the parents are identified as Jane and John Doe, while the now five-year-old child is referred to as R.V. The cruise on the Disney Fantasy Ship took place from January 4, 2020, through January 11, 2020. The complaint alleges the sexual assault took place on January 9 and was carried out by a “significantly older child,” according to WCAX.
The assault allegedly took place at Disney’s Oceaneer Club daycare facility aboard the ship, according
