After the fall Dopey took on Sunday night on the Character Steamboat during Fantasmic Disney has pulled the scene with characters and according to WDW News Today has replaced it with a water effect.

Talk online is that Disney is adding safety measures to the boat so this type of incident doesn’t happen again. No official word has been released by Disney but I know Disney considers safety their highest priority for both their guest and their cast members.

In case you missed the video of Dopey falling off the 2nd floor of the steamboat you can see it here.

  1. Oh man! I saw this video the other day. Hope all the cast members are doing alright.

    Maybe adding little metal lip (where his foot slipped off) and maybe an extra horizontal bar or two would help. I hope they bring it back soon… that’s one of the funnest parts for kids.

  2. That fall looked so scary! Thank goodness they’re both okay and that the experience was ruined for any of the guests. That could’ve been very devastating for a lot of children in attendance.

  3. I’m positive they will bring it back, but with some definite safety measures. When I worked there safety was Huge! Mentioned every day. Hope dopey is recovering
