It seems that Disney employees frequently make news after being arrested and or charged with sex crimes against children

The latest is Daniel Rivera, a Father of two, who has worked for Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts for 20 years.

He is under investigation after a Dropbox account, that he allegedly owned, was found containing several images of child pornography which included grown men having sex with children under the age of 10 yrs old.

Rivera was booked at the Orange County Jail.

The New York Post reports: A longtime Disney World employee was arrested for allegedly sharing child pornography and uploading pictures of a pal’s underage daughter online — saying he wanted to “impregnate her.”

Daniel Rivera, a Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts employee of 20 years, was booked at the Orange County Jail following a months-long investigation into his Dropbox account that contained several files of children under 10 having sex with adult men.

Investigators said Rivera, a father-of-two, admitted to obtaining child porn about once a week for the last 10 years, and even shared personal information about coworkers on adult sites, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Rivera allegedly shared about 155 posts on the sites, “including several photos of young girls and women he claims he knows,” according to court records.

Several of them included coworkers dressed as Disney characters, with Rivera allegedly posting in an online forum that “hot teens in mouse ears are a weakness of mine.”

Another post included a picture of an underage daughter of a friend in a cheerleading uniform with a caption of how he was “fantasizing about having sex and impregnating her.”

A Walt Disney World spokesperson confirmed that Rivera was put on administration leave following the arrest.

Investigators said the case against Rivera began in September, when the Orange County Sheriff’s Office received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about the Disney employee’s Dropbox.

Dropbox, the file hosting giant, provided police with the IP addresses linked to Rivera’s account, which included a computer linked to Walt Disney World Service, according to court records.

The link ““implies that the user was located within Disney office space or Disney property,” leading investigators to Rivera.

His Winter Garden home was also flagged in the search.

During a search of his home last Thursday, police also found a hard drive containing images of girls in “erotic poses.”

Rivera was charged with transporting child pornography, with other charges likely to be filed against him during a court hearing on Wednesday.
