The USWNT star and three others, including a pair of Orlando City players, were told to leave Epcot Center after an incident

A "highly impaired" Alex Morgan was among a group of four people who were told by police to leave Disney World on Sunday.

The U.S. women's national team and Orlando Pride star was part of a large group that included multiple players from MLS side Orlando City SC. 

TMZ reports Morgan was involved in an argument with another party at a pub in Epcot Center. That dispute resulted in police being called in, and Morgan — along with Jamaica international Giles Barnes, his Orlando City teammate Donny Toia and Toia’s wife — being told to leave the premises.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department confirmed the removal of the four, telling TMZ: "These are the individuals that were trespassed from Disney on Oct. 1.”

TMZ later obtained an incident report, which says Morgan appeared intoxicated and made claims about knowing the Orlando SWAT team in order to get the matter dropped.

The report states the dispute began when Barnes cut in front of another patron in line, resulting in an argument and Barnes being escorted out of the park.

However, the police were recalled about the other members of the group, who were also described in the report as being "impaired and verbally aggressive."

Morgan was described as "yelling, screaming and taking video and possibly pictures."

According to TMZ, the police report states: "She appeared to be highly impaired. Deputy Johnson heard Ms. Morgan make a loud verbal statement that she knows the Orlando SWAT team."

Earlier in the day, the group, which also included Morgan’s husband Servando Carrasco and his Orlando City teammates Dom Dwyer, Joe Bendik, Dillon Powers and Sebastian Hines, posted a photo on Instagram.

Orlando City SC, which runs the Orlando Pride, told the Orlando Sentinel: "The Orlando City SC organization is aware of a situation that occurred at Walt Disney World's Epcot theme park earlier this week and is awaiting official communication from Disney or the Orange County Police Department.

"The club will address the matter internally when there is a full understanding of what occurred."

Since returning from a loan with Olympique Lyonnais in France, Morgan has scored nine goals in 13 appearances for the Pride. She and her teammates meet the Portland Thorns in the NWSL semifinals Oct. 7.

With the FIFA international break, Orlando City does not have another game until Oct. 15.
