However, a video on TikTok recently caught a bit of a scary incident that unfolded during the popular parade.

As you can see in the video, the performer gives an emergency signal and a Disney Cast Member quickly approaches them. The performer stops performing the choreography, and the nutcrackers are slightly thrown off for just a couple of seconds. The performers do a great job getting back into position, though, and the parade continued.

There has been no report on what happened for the performer to need to be pulled from the parade, but we send our best wishes and hope this was just a small technical difficulty rather than anything major.
