Tragic Incident at Disneyland Park

Disney emergency ride evacuations are rare but necessary occurrences at Disney theme parks. These evacuations are carefully planned and executed to ensure the safety and well-being of all guests and Cast Members.

Disneyland Park, being one of the most popular theme park destinations globally, has stringent safety protocols in place to handle any emergency situation swiftly and efficiently. In the event of a ride evacuation, trained Cast Members assist guests in a calm and organized manner to ensure a smooth process.

Such evacuations may occur for various reasons, such as technical issues, power outages, or even guest behavior that may compromise safety protocols. Despite the inconvenience they may cause, these evacuations are a testament to Disney’s unwavering commitment to guest safety above all else.

Unfortunately for Disney Park guests visiting Galaxy’s Edge last night, the evacuation seemed to be for a slightly more concerning reason. One guest informed fans of the evacuation, saying:

“What just happened on ROTR?

We were in line for Rise and we were emergency evaced out with so much urgency and there was a cluster of about 20 cops at the line entrance. Now we’re hearing ambulance noises.”

Hundreds of other guests commented on this experience. One other witness provided more details about the event, saying:

“We were there too, happened about 9:30 pm. Very strange – first an abrupt “everyone turn around and leave” and then right after, another message but a more abrupt tone…and then after a collective groan, people just stood there. Once we started moving and got to an emergency exit, the door was locked, so we were forced to take baby steps through the crowd which was in NO HURRY whatsoever. Keep in mind this was the fire alarm and it’s announcing “this is an emergency”…not your typical ride is down scenario. When we finally got out into the open air, cast members were lined up preventing anyone from going left. Woman in front of me asked a CM what happened and he just forcefully told her “GO TO YOUR RIGHT”. I definitely would like to know what happened as well.”

While many guests witnessed the event, not many knew for sure what the cause of the issue really was. However, one source in the comments was able to report that the cause of the incident was actually a group of guests who decided to break an essential safety rule.

Guests Allegedly Jump off ‘Star Wars’ Attraction

One guest alleged that the reason for the emergency shutdown and subsequent evacuation had to do with a group of guests who jumped off the attraction. Allegedly, the group also started a fight over attraction. Just last week, a similar fight broke out on the Disneyland Railroad, also at the same park. The commenter reports:

“A couple of punks jumped off the ride and started causing a ruckus and started a fight. Someone pulled the fire alarm.”

As of now, these claims have not been backed up by law enforcement or a Disneyland Park official. In this current age, when bad guest behavior is on the rise, it is essential to follow the rules and not risk your life on Disney.

Bad behavior of this nature will likely result in significant repercussions, possibly even a lifetime ban from Disney theme parks forever. In the past, guests have been seriously injured from incidents like this one, so second chances will likely not be handed out.
