Walt Disney Imagineers create attractions that feel and look magical, but they’re still machines that break down occasionally! Most Disneyland Resort rides start operating soon after interruptions, but sometimes an evacuation is necessary.
This week, TikToker McCall Mirabella (@mccallmirabella) was evacuated from Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue! at Disney California Adventure. Instead of following Disney Cast Member instructions, the TikToker controversially took the opportunity to get content for her more than 700,000 followers:
this is why Disney escorted me off a ride 🥴🎢 #disneyland #storytime #disney
“My friends and I boarded our car in Monstropolis. The ride started off normal,” Mirabella explained. “Then our car stopped, and the lights turned on. We had no idea what was happening.”
Eventually, all Guests were escorted off Monsters, Inc. and through a backstage area.
“Make sure you’re not recording, please,” a Disney Cast Member said to Mirabella as she exited the ride. However, she refused to comply.
“What are they gonna do, sue me?” She asked.
In the end, Mirabella said the experience was “all worth it” because the group received a free Lightning Lane selection.
This follows a recent incident in which a TikToker and musician stood up during an interruption at Pirates of the Caribbean. She blasted music from her phone and was the first to be evacuated from the ride.
