A family visiting the Magic Kingdom from Tennessee is claiming that an “Apple AirTag” tracked them during their entire stay at Walt Disney World.

Jennifer Gaston says as the family was on the monorail heading back to their car she received a notification that an AirTag device was tracking her family.

“We were terrified, we were confused, hurt, and scared,”  Jennifer Gaston told FOX 35 Orlando  “She literally watched it follow us from the tram all the way back to our vehicle.”

According to Gaston’s daughter, the device had tracked the family for several hours while they toured the theme park.

Then they say the AirTag went “dark” when the Gaston’s got to their vehicle.  That’s when they drove away and called police.

The daughter says she continued to track the device’s location, and it showed that it was still in the parking lot.

“As she was refreshing it, it showed the AirTag was still in our parking spot so somehow when we were frantically shaking out clothes and dumping everything out of our bags it fell out,” Gaston said.

Apple AirTags are devices meant to keep track of personal belongings in the event they are lost, but have been used by criminals in the past.
