Disney Character Flashes Emergency Signal, Rushed Out of Parade

Disney Character Malfunction

Disney Parades can be some of the most magical experiences families have during their day in the Theme Parks. Guests can see the amazing floats, sing along to a special song or medley, and see all of their favorite characters in one place.

Unfortunately, though, not every parade goes as planned.

In a video recently shared to TikTok, a fan caught Donald Duck having to give an emergency signal to the attending Cast Members during the middle of a parade at Disneyland Park, and the favorite character had to be escourted “back stage.” The incident occurred during the “Magic Happens” Parade.

Check it out:


Poor Donald! We all have those day! Its been tough for Disneyland lately! Alot has happened but its nothing that cant be fixed! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Thankful to all the cast members keeping the magic alive! ๐Ÿ’› You all rock! #magichappens #parade #disneyparade #donaldduck #disneyland

โ™ฌ Song Oh no oh no oh no no no – Hip Hop

We can see Donald hiding his face, but it is unclear what happened to him. He reportedly returned to the parade a few minutes later, always able to land back on his feet and the afternoon daytime spectacular appears to have continued on as scheduled from the far corner of Fantasyland by “it’s a small world,” in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, down Main Street, U.S.A.

It is not the first time a “fur character” has had a wardrobe malfunction on stage and, unfortunately, it probably won’t be the last at any of the Disney Theme Parks, including Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure, Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But we have to comment Disneyland Cast Members for the work they’ve done to keep the show going all the while.

This parade malfunction follows closely behind another incident that occurred during Disneyland’s performance of Fantasmic! when the Maleficent Dragon caught fire in a sudden and unplanned explosion. Click the link below for more on that story.
