Power outage stops rides at Disneyland amid busy holiday season

A power outage stopped rides in Toontown and Fantasyland in Disneyland on Wednesday morning, park officials said.

A malfunction with one of the property’s transformers caused the outage about 11 a.m. and knocked out power to about a dozen rides between the two areas of the park, a Disneyland spokesperson said.

An unknown number of guests had to be escorted off the attractions, according to officials.

A majority of the rides were back online by noon, the official said. Power was fully restored by 4 p.m.

The outage came amid the park’s busy holiday season. No refunds were expected to be offered, the park spokesperson said.
