A Disney Park Guest was reportedly stretchered from a ride at Walt Disney World Resort.
Walt Disney World Resort is home to many iconic attractions, including four world-class theme parks in Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Millions of Guests all across the globe visit Walt Disney World each and every year, coming to take in “The Most Magical Place On Earth.”
With the sheer volume of people that visit the Disney Parks daily, there are bound to be some incidents to unfold. Whether it be fights between Guests, line-jumping incidents, health issues, or anything else, Disney Cast Members are expertly-trained to take care of problems as they arise.
Recently, Inside the Magic reported on an incident at Magic Kingdom where an elderly Guest passed out while riding Disney’s Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover. The Guest tragically passed away after being taken to a medical facility.
Now, it seems another incident reportedly happened over the weekend at the same Disney World attraction, though not nearly as serious.
“We saw a lady get taken off on a stretcher a few days ago,” one Guest shared on social media. “They had to wheel her down the ramp. I am guessing she fell when she got to the top.”
Disney has not issued a statement on the alleged incident, and it’s important to remember that these are reports on social media. The user assumed that the Guest may have fallen once they got to the top of the ride, but nothing has been confirmed.
Another Disney Park Guest said they were at the attraction around the time that the incident unfolded, as well.
“We had gotten in the queue right as it stopped, but didn’t stick around after 7-8 cast members started going up the stopped ramp,” the Guest said.
As stated above, Disney Cast Members have been trained to take care of incidents that arise.
If the Guest that was stretchered down the ramp was hospitalized for more than 24 hours, this will appear on the next Incident Report that Disney World will release at the beginning of 2023. However, it is unclear what the extent of these injuries sustained were, or what caused the Guest to allegedly need medical attention.
The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover gives Guests a chance to board an elevated tram for a leisurely voyage through Tomorrowland. During your narrated tour, go behind the scenes of attractions like Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Space Mountain, and Star Traders retail shop. You can also see the architectural models of Progress City, the prototype for EPCOT.
