News! Explosion in Toontown at Disneyland
The news of the Disneyland explosion was broken by several park attendees on Twitter.
The Anaheim Police Department has confirmed that a small explosion occurred in Disneyland’s Toontown area today. A call went out to the police reporting a blast around 5:30PM Disneyland time.
The device was apparently a simple mix of dry ice in a plastic bottle left inside a trash can. The area was evacuated as a precautionary measure. However, no injuries have been reported at this time.
It seems more like a prank than anything else. Anyone stupid enough to try and pull this off with all the cameras in Disneyland is in for a rude awaking.
Even a prank of using dry ice to cause an explosion is illegal in California.
Twitter users reported:
“Was sitting in Toontown at Disneyland and something exploded in the trash can. I felt the sound waves of it and Toontown is closed,” reported one Twitter user.
“Something went BOOM in Toontown at Disneyland and now they’re evacuating,” wrote another, who also posted a picture of several visitors evacuating the park. The crowd appeared to be evacuating Disneyland in an orderly fashion.
“It came from a trash can next to the trolley stop in the middle of Toontown. Everyone stopped and looked around when it happened,” he continued.
Disney has not released an official statement.
