You can't even trust DisneyWorld.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Three Orlando-area theme park workers were suspended on Monday after an online sex sting operation in Polk County.

Twenty-one people were arrested in all, including two Disney employees, hospitality host George Auld III and ride operator Jason Lee Honeycutt. Universal CityWalk food-and-beverage employee Brian Stenstrup was also charged, WESH 2 News reported.

All three are jailed in Polk County on charges of attempting to solicit a minor for sex.

Investigators said the men carried on graphic online chats for months with those who they believed were young teenage boys or girls. When the men showed up at a Polk County house, they were arrested.

Disney released a statement that said the workers have been placed on administrative leave without pay, and the statement went on to say that Disney has required background checks for all new hires since the mid-1990s.
