As you can see in the video above, the user received a photo from Disney PhotoPass of an empty Space Mountain train. There is no MagicBand link at Disneyland Resort, so it’s definitely strange and perplexing how the photo was sent to their account. While app glitches seem to be minimal, they can certainly be disturbing when they happen.
