It looks like a lawsuit may be on the way to Disney after a major tram collision took place at Disneyland Resort.

Lately, trams have been a big topic in Disney news discussion. The previous COVID-19 pandemic caused Disneyland Resort Guests to be without many major attractions and experiences over the course of the last few years, but the one most often mentioned is the tram transportation system that carried Guests from the parking lot to the Disney Parks.

Walt Disney World Resort announced the return of trams earlier last year, and the popular transportation method has been slowly phased back in at the Orlando Disney Parks. At the moment it was recently announced that this month, EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios would finally bring back trams following Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s tram return which happened last year. 

In Disneyland, on February 23, Mickey & Friends and Pixar Pals Parking Structures finally had their trams return! Prior to this, guests who parked in the Mickey & Friends and Pixar Pals Parking Structures had to walk to Downtown Disney, Disneyland, and Disney California Adventure. The walk is quite a long one, so the return of these trams was a huge benefit for guests and left many people very happy.

Unfortunately, it seems that a collision was recently reported between two trams, leaving guests injured and forced to walk back to their cars on foot.

One Reddit thread was launched yesterday asking, “Anyone know why the trams stopped running? (Sunday night). Was walking into world of Disney and heard quite a large thud from the tram area …. Looked but couldn’t really see anything from where we were. When we got out, everyone was walking back to the parking structure. Anyone know what happened?”

Michelle (@mi_shelle_) shared a video on X of the crash, and was on the tram when it happened. They said, “I’m at Disneyland and now we have to walk to the car because two trams crashed, all I know is I was on that tram, and now my back hurts, but I’ll settle it for an annual pass”. According to Michelle, their back was in pain from the accident, and it seems that they want to be compensated for it.

Corey Barak (@coreysbarak) shared another photo stating, “⁦@Disneyland well done. Trams crash and after a long day have to walk 20 min to car. And staff is not nice or helpful.” We can clearly see that this happened around park close, which means that there were likely many guests aboard. Trams can take hundreds of guests, which means a collision can be a huge safety threat to many.

On the Reddit thread, one guest saw the collision and reported a horrifying recount of what was seen, “I saw the tram collide & it was frightening! I was under the impression that a child or children were struck since I witnessed children crying and a few people screaming. I really hope people will have calmer nerves leading into the rest of their Disney-cation.”

The guest reported terrified children aboard the tram, which clearly shows that the collision was noticeable and felt by all guests, enough to terrify many.

It seems that some guests have claimed to be injured from the accident, but no one has reported going to the hospital, nor has Disneyland spone out on the situation.

What do you think about this tram collision at Disneyland?

Planning a trip to Disneyland is always a blast, especially if you plan on visiting Disney California Adventure! The theme park is directly across from Disneyland and has some of the best attractions you can ride and experience. Cars Land will truly blow you away as you see Lightning McQueen come alive on Route 66. Radiator Springs Racers is a must-ride, and eating at Flo’s Café has the best vibes. Want to test your thrill side? Incredicoaster will blast you through Pixar Pier. The Pixar Pal-A-Round provides DCA with the perfect backdrop, and a little further into the land, you can experience Avenger’s Campus and ride Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Disney’s Grand Californian Resort is attached to the theme park, so you can hop on Soarin’ Around the World and then back to your hotel! 

Or, are you looking to visit Disneyland? Considering Disneyland, located in Anaheim, California, is the first ever theme park, and the only one that Walt Disney himself was able to walk through, it holds a magical spot in all of our Disney-loving hearts. Seeing Sleeping Beauty Castle is a picture-perfect moment; there is so much to do! When it comes to attractions, Guests can enjoy the spooky adventures in The Haunted Mansion during the year and Haunted Mansion Holiday (featuring the characters from Nightmare Before Christmas) during the holiday season. Pirates of the Caribbean will take you on a swashbuckling journey, and Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain provide thrills like no other. Classic rides like Matterhorn Bobsleds, Storybook Land Canal Boats, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, and Snow White’s Enchanted Wish are a must, and dining is excellent with stand-out locations like Blue Bayou and Carnation Cafe.
