As you can see, Guests were in line for The Little Mermaid attraction when one of the decorative glass balls fell from the ceiling and shattered on the ground. The Guest claims that several other Guests were left with cuts as a result and Cast Members were called in to assist:

Just watched this glass orb in the Little Mermaid queue fall out the rope and shatter all across the ground. A good amount of people had minor cuts. Didn’t see if it just straight up broke or if someone was playing with it. Guests are walking around the glass waiting for a CM.

This is not even the first time we have seen debris fall from the ceiling of a Disney ride queue with a similar situation occurring at Disneyland’s Space Mountain. Hopefully, all Guests who were injured were taken care of and the situation was resolved by Disney. More on Under The Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid:
