Seizures Are Reported at Disney World

The Department of Agriculture recently shared data in a theme park injury report listing Walt Disney World injuries between April and June of 2022 and revealed that in the past three months, multiple injuries (including seizures, unconsciousness, and cardiac issues) have afflicted Walt Disney World Guests.

Apparently, Walt Disney World does not have to reveal any information about injuries unless the injured Guest has spent a minimum of 24 hours in the hospital after being injured. This deal supposedly keeps Walt Disney World from undergoing any state inspections that would follow a “high-profile injury” in a theme park injury report.

The injuries and incidents reported in the Disney World injury reports for the past three months included Guests having seizures, Guests losing consciousness, and one female Guest having a “cardiac event.” The 66-year-old woman with the “cardiac event” apparently had a “pre-existing condition,” and the event occurred on the attraction Living with the Land in EPCOT.

Two seizures were reported in the theme park injury report: one affected a 47-year-old woman at the Hollywood Studios attraction called Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. The other seizure affected a 23-year-old man while he was on the Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run ride in Hollywood Studios.

After exiting the Avatar ride called Flight of Passage in the Animal Kingdom, a 67-year-old woman apparently lost consciousness, and a 44-year-old man also lost consciousness while he was on the Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition in the Animal Kingdom.

According to the Disney World injury reports, another injury also involved the Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition: a 57-year-old woman reportedly had difficulty breathing and was “feeling numbness to her face after riding the attraction.”

One Guest also had “stroke-like symptoms” in the Magic Kingdom Disney Park; the Guest was a 61-year-old woman who was on the Under the Sea — Journey of the Little Mermaid attraction.

Have you ever experienced a medical emergency in Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, or any other Disney Parks or Disney Resorts across the globe (or even on a Disney cruise ship)? Have you ever witnessed such an emergency firsthand?
