Breaking News – Explosion at Disneyland causes evacuation


Reports are coming in from Twitter than there was an explosion in Toontown at the Disneyland Resort.

@theallenwolf seems to be breaking this story via twitter and is responsible for the picture above.

It came from a trash can next to the trolley stop in the middle of Toontown. Everyone stopped and looked around when it happened. @KTLA also shared the news via it’s twitter feed.

As of right now I have no other news other than Disneyland is evacuating and should have more details soon. For now follow @theallenwolf for more info.

Updated information below.


#Disneyland evacuation seems orderly, no panic nor injuries reported. “Explosion” may be too strong of a word to describe event.

#disneyland explosion caused by dry ice in a soda bottle.

Update 05.29.13

Police have arrested a Disneyland employee on suspicion of placing a so-called dry ice bomb in a trash can at the theme park.

Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn said Wednesday that detectives arrested 22-year-old Christian Barnes of Long Beach for investigation of possessing a destructive device.

  1. I am glad it wasn’t any kind of attack. Last time I went to Disney I wondered what type of training or plans they had in place for such an event. Unfortunately we now wonder how safe we are even when visiting the happiest place on earth. 🙁
