ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a man has made Walt Disney World his happiest place on Earth for dining and dashing.

Fifty-one-year-old Jerry Moody was arrested Tuesday after the manager of a lounge at Disney’s Contemporary Resort says he racked up a $92 bar tab and tried to leave without paying.

The Orlando Sentinel says that according to an arrest report, a waitress recognized him as fitting the description of a man who tried to do the same thing at another lounge the previous night.

Both lounges are on Disney property but not inside the theme park. Many Disney restaurants and lounges don’t require admission fees.

Police say Moody acknowledged that he shouldn’t be at the resort but told detectives he likes to go to Disney World.

Reports show Moody’s been arrested on Disney properties five times.

He’s being held on a $5,100 bond. The newspaper says Disney had no comment.
