Power Out At Disneyland

The Happiest Place on Earth has lost power thanks to a broken transformer according to officials.  Dozens of people at Disneyland are being escorted off the rides in Toontown and Fantasyland, while crews are working to get the power working again.  

The park tweeted at around 1pm that it would only accept guests for re-entry at Disneyland. Disney's California Adventure was unaffected by the power outage and remained open for guests.

The outage began around 11 am, and led to the evacuation of 10 to 12 rides in Toontown, Frontierland, and Fantasyland. Passengers on the Monorail were also forced to disembark. Power was mostly restored by noon according to a park spokesperson and staff were working to reactivate rides. 

The issue was traced to a transformer located on the Disneyland property and "our team is currently assessing and working to restore power," according to a statement from park officials. 

Guests weren't happy with the outage and took to Twitter to express their outrage. 

One man asked whether "there any recouping admission considering half the park for our 20 month old is down due to a power outage?''

Another wrote: "Way to ruin a family trip,'' and another tweeted: "How's Disneyland gonna have a power outage the day we paid $124 for peak day tickets?!''
