Disneyland seems to have been attacked by Zurg the past few days. Some rides were shut down at the ‘Magic Kingdom’ because of a power outage for the second day in a row.

Disney spokesman John Nicoletti confirmed that the outage affected some attractions including Space Mountain. Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters was also shut down, but other ‘Tomorrowland’ rides were up, including Autopia and Star Tours.

The Monorail was initially closed, but started again after operators ran it around a few times, an employee told guests.

Official Report: A power surge originating from the Anaheim Public Utilities’ electrical grid shut down the rides at Disneyland briefly at around 11 a.m. this morning.

Disney spokesman John Nicoletti couldn’t say exactly how long the rides were down for, but he said that in the event of a power surge, it’s routine to cut the power for each ride and then power it back up for safety reasons.

Anaheim Public Utilities spokeswoman Margie Otto said: “One of our auto-transfer switches failed, causing a momentary dip in voltage. Disneyland was not on that circuit, but they experienced a momentary dip in voltage.”
