Could a power surge (or a few of them) be to blame for yesterday’s multiple attraction closures in Disneyland Resort?

Why Are All These Disneyland Rides Closed? Possible Disneyland Power Surge?

Yesterday was a sad day for Guests as numerous attractions were closed throughout Friday, leaving Guests puzzled and angry. @2Josue2Furious (great username, by the way) on Twitter posting the following:

Per the tweet above, the following rides were closed yesterday:

Disneyland gave no real reason as to why all these popular attractions were shut down. Some said it was due to ride refurbishments or possible maintenance work, but these are all speculative.

One user on Twitter did mention the following as the reason for the attractions shutting down unexpectedly:

It would appear that a few power surges in less than 8 minutes led to Disneyland Resort closing down the above attractions for obvious safety reasons. But this is something we can not confirm or deny; I’m just the messenger.

June is part of Disneyland’s peak season, so to have nearly ten of their most beloved attractions down was not okay, especially for those families and Guests that paid to enjoy their weekend at Disneyland Resort. But you can not control everything, especially when a few power surges hit a major theme Park. There was no other word on injuries or anything like that, as this was likely primarily just another typical day in Cali. After doing some digging, I discovered that Peter Pan’s Flight and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride were the only attractions mentioned to be undergoing some minor refurbishments at this time.
