In the early morning of September 16, 2023, a distressing incident occurred at the Toy Story Parking Lot adjacent to the Disneyland Resort. According to Twitter user RyanThemePark, a vehicle collided with the bus guard shack at the parking facility’s entrance. While the incident is concerning and scary, photos provided by RyanThemePark lead us to believe the guard on duty was fortunate to escape unharmed. Law enforcement also responded quickly to the crash.

Details remain limited on exactly what happened. RyanThemePark’s Twitter posts included images of the scene, notably the guard shack, but did not provide any information regarding the condition of the vehicle involved or the identity and status of the driver. Nevertheless, the fact that the guard appears unharmed is a relief, considering the potential for serious injuries in such incidents.
