Travel Agent Dies After Fall at Walt Disney World Resort Hotel 


On her Facebook page, Jessica Straub would post selfies wearing Mickey Mouse ears as she posed at Walt Disney World. Going to Disney felt like going home, Straub reportedly wrote. 

The travel agent’s trip right before Christmas 2020 took a tragic turn, according to a new lawsuit. 

On the 18th December, 2020, Straub fell and hit her head at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. She suffered blunt force trauma to the head and died, a lawsuit filed by her estate against Disney this week said. 

Straub died on the 22nd December, 2020, according to the District Nine Medical Examiner’s Office who did not perform an autopsy but re-signed her death certificate. Her cause of death was ruled an accident due to blunt head trauma from falling at a standing height, the agency said. 

Straub’s obituary said her death was on the 20th December, 2020, while the lawsuit said her death was on 22nd December, 2022. According to Florida Politics, Morgan & Morgan didn’t respond to a message the outlet sent them to comment on the discrepancies in dates. 

FYI: Florida Politics’ Gabrielle Russon initially covered this lawsuit. Ruston reached out to Morgan & Morgan, who filed the lawsuit for comment. Stay tuned for further updates. 

Reedy Creek Improvement District did not immediately release records following a request made by Florida Politics. 

Straub worked as a travel agent at Magical Enchanted Vacations, according to her Facebook account/page and her obituary. 

The lawsuit was filed by Justin Morrison, who as listed as sStraub’s surviving brother, according to Florida Politics.
