Two guests who visited Magic Kingdom in 2018 claim they received injuries while riding the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover. Now both Florida residents are filing separate lawsuits over their alleged incidents.
The incidents occurred on different days. Stacy Burdick of Pasco County reports her incident happened at Magic Kingdom on June 23, 2018. Burdick’s attorney described the details of her event. She was riding the PeopleMover when the train unexpectedly stopped and restarted. Burdick was seated in the rear of the tram and the incident happened early in her ride.
Her attorney, Jim Mancuso, made the following statements in an email:
“The tram in front of her remained stationary, the two trams collided, and Stacy was seriously injured. Because of the malfunction in the ride, Stacy had to have spinal surgery and her life has been turned upside down.”
In the second alleged incident, Eric Cintron says he was injured while riding the PeopleMover on June 27, 2018. It was a similar claim saying how the tram abruptly stopped, restarted, and crashed into the tram in front of them.
Each lawsuit is seeking more than $30,000 in the Orange County Circuit Court.
Disney has not commented on these allegations yet. We will provide updates if new information becomes available.
