Disneyland Power Restored After Failure Shuts FantasylandBy
Access to park available as of 5 p.m., local time, Disney says
All attractions are ‘fully operational,’ theme park says
Power was restored after a failure during one of the busiest times of year at Disneyland temporarily stopped rides such as the Monorail and forced tourists to crowd into sections of the park that remained open Wednesday. Access to the facility was available as of 5 p.m., local time, and all attractions were “fully operational,” the company said in a Twitter post.
Workers at the theme park in Anaheim, California, escorted visitors off of rides, said Suzi Brown, a spokeswoman for Walt Disney Co. Disneyland remained open for guests who were already at the park, though new arrivals weren’t being admitted during the outage.
With areas near Toontown and Fantasyland affected by the outage, Disney encouraged guests via Twitter to head to Tomorrowland and Adventureland. Several tourists complained on social media about crowds and said they’d been refused refunds.
The power failure had no effect on areas outside the Disney property, Brown said.
