Disney World Resort is typically known as the Most Magical Place on Earth, but even in a world of fantasy, real-world problems can creep in.

Disney always ensures that they are providing safety to their Cast Members and Guests. Whenever medical attention is needed, there is a first-aid team only steps away, as well as Orange County sheriffs on property and the Reedy Creek fire department close by. This evening, it seems there was cause for concern on Main Street, U.S.A., as a fire has reportedly broken out, causing a fire truck and multiple ambulances to arrive on the scene.

Patricia Tolley (@ptolley__) Tweeted that the Cast Members are clearing Guests away as the fire truck was coming in, as well as the record which reported that there was a call for a fire at Magic Kingdom at 6:24 p.m.

There is an active fire call at the Magic Kingdom, cast members are pointing guests off the walkway.

The Coaster Crew (@CoasterCrew) Tweeted us a photo of the fire truck riding down Main Street, U.S.A. In the video we can hear sirens going off as two ambulances followed behind.

This is definitely something we have never seen in all our years of visiting The Magic Kingdom…

Stacey (@StaySeeGo) reported that they also saw the fire truck and ambulances go by.

Two ambulances and a firetruck at Magic Kingdom, parked and disembarked at the left side of the Hub. No word on what’s happening of course, I left to area to try and give them space and be respectful.

At the moment, it is unclear as to what has gone wrong, but we can clearly see that Disney is doing all they can to get first responders on the scene. Considering all three vehicles were escorted into the Park, there is a cause for their presence, but as we mentioned, we are unsure as to what severity and in what nature help is needed, aside from an active fire being reported.

Unofficially, some are noting that the fire broke out at Cinderella’s Royal Table and that Guests were evacuated.

WDW Crane (@WdwCrane) noted:

From a single source, looks like it was a fire in the kitchen at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Guests had to evacuate downstairs.

In the past, we have also seen fireworks cause a fire at Magic Kingdom, however, that does not seem to be the issue in this case.

As the situation continues, we have now seen reports that the fire truck is near by Liberty Square. Theme Park Shark (@themeparkshark) shared photos and explained:

Fire truck is currently on the bridge near liberty. Guests are being directed away from that area.

Lights are back on, and pointed towards the castle.

It seems that there was visible smoke, which Disney is attempting to hide with lower light levels.


Reporter Ashley Carter (@AshleyLCarter1) has confirmed that no one was injured in the small fire.

Just confirmed with Disney that there was a small fire at Magic Kingdom. No one was injured.

We are happy to announce all Guests and Cast Members are safe at this time.
