Power Outage Affects Parts of Disneyland

Disneyland Hit With Power Outage, Tourists Stuck On Rides

KABC reports that the park was near capacity when the outage occurred in both Fantasyland and Toontown.

Oklahoma and Georgia are scheduled to visit Disneyland Wednesday to begin events leading up to the Rose Bowl, but a power outage is disrupting attractions at the park. Teams were working to restore the power as quickly as possible but the company wasn't sure when that would happen. The power outage halted about a dozen rides located in those areas, according to a Disneyland spokesperson.

Geoff Fienberg and his family were stuck on It's a Small World when the power went out and were escorted off the ride.

"We sat there for about 25 minutes in the dark", he was quoted as saying by the New York Daily News. "It was all very calm".

Disneyland officials didn't say when power would come back.

A spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times that no refunds will be given.

Disneyland suffered some setbacks on Wednesday after reporting it was experiencing power outages.

Around 1 p.m. local time, the park tweeted that guests would only be admitted for re-entry - so any late starts to Disneyland today should instead be heading for the California Adventure Park.
