According to first reports from MiceChat, “Security is swarming the Golden Horseshoe at Disneyland where some sort of incident is underway involving a guest. A cast member who fled the scene explains that a guest brought a weapon (not believed to be a gun) into the establishment and began threatening staff. The guest then tried to barricade an employee exit at the back of the facility. We don’t know if the incident has been resolved and are awaiting additional information from cast and Disneyland spokespeople.”
