Toontown evacuated: Tourists react to Disneyland explosion
After a loud boom was heard in Disneyland Tuesday afternoon, people were evacuating Toontown after a report of an explosion that appeared to have involved dry ice, authorities said.
Sgt. Robert Dunn of the Anaheim Police Department told the Times the dry ice appeared to have been placed in a plastic bottle.
Police swarmed Disneyland on Tuesday evening as they were trying to determine the chain of events that led to the explosion of a dry ice “bomb” at Toontown, authorities said.

@mesorandy It came from a trash can next to the trolley stop in the middle of Toontown. Everyone stopped and looked around when it happened.— Allen Wolf (@theallenwolf) May 29, 2013
