Paging Mr. Morrow…Mr. Tom Morrow!

This past Thursday, the People Mover attraction in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom was close for a few hours due to the ride emitting smoke.

Earlier in the evening a guest named James Reinert waiting in line noticed a burning smell coming out from the ride, not to long after Cast Members stopped the queue and used a fire extinguisher on the ride’s exit ramp.

The ride was close along with the Astro Orbiter located at the top of the attraction and Reedy Creek was called at around 5:24pm.

A spokeswoman for Reedy Creek Improvement District, Eryka Washington said there was no fire at the scene and that the cause of the smoke is unknown.

The Walt Disney World Resort hasn’t make any comments about the incident yet.

The People Mover was back in operation later that evening.
