With thousands of Guests visiting Disneyland Resort each day, attractions are destined to have issues. Even The Happiest Place on Earth has faults!

This week, a group of Guests was scared silly while riding Silly Symphony Swings at Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure. @mijito_gustavito shared a video of himself and others dangling in the air during a breakdown:

Thankfully, the Guests were only a few feet off the ground. Everyone appears to have evacuated safely, and Silly Symphony Swings is operating normally at the time of this article’s publication.

While The Band Concert (1953) and Silly Symphony are best known for “The Skeleton Dance,” they also inspired this thrilling Disney Park attraction. From Disney:

Get swept off your feet and into the air as you wheel above it all in graceful, soaring circles.

A Whirl of Fun!

Experience the carefree thrill of flying as this classic ride carries you aloft for breathtaking views of all the park excitement below. 

As music swells and the colorful canopy rotates, your swing lifts you, then tilts you, then twirls you round and round—higher and higher.

Inspired by a Mickey Mouse Classic

Silly Symphony Swings puts an exhilarating spin on the fun of the 1935 cartoon, “The Band Concert.” This beloved short features Mickey Mouse as a harried conductor who keeps his orchestra playing—even as a tornado whisks them all high in the sky. 

Your whirlwind adventure is set to the same symphonic theme as the cartoon—the stirring “William Tell Overture.”

Have you ever been stuck on a ride at Disneyland or Walt Disney World Resort?
