Walt Disney World opened on October 1, 1971. Over the years, there have been numerous accidents, incidents, hurricanes, etc. that have occurred at the most magical place on earth. I have listed ten disturbing incidents not only to inform, but to make future Disney guests aware of what did happen, but most likely won’t happen again. It’s easy to forget about safety and security when you are at Walt Disney World, so hopefully, this article will caution you to be mindful of your surroundings, and if something seems odd or out of place, report it to a cast member and don’t try to figure it out for yourself.

A Disney transportation bus rear-ended a private charter bus near the entrance to the Epcot parking lot, injuring seven passengers, and the bus driver received critical injuries. It was later reported that both bus drivers were at fault. The Disney transportation bus driver’s legs were crushed in the accident, and he received a monetary settlement because of his injuries.
