BREAKING: Reedy Creek Fire Department responds to call at Space Mountain at Disney World; Space Mountain & PeopleMover shut down

Currently, the Space Mountain attraction and the PeopleMover attraction in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom have been shut down after a fire alarm was activated. The Reedy Creek Fire Department has responded to the call, according to a tweet from the Florida travel site, Gotta Go Orlando.

The tweet from Gotta Go Orlando was posted at 4:15 p.m. local time (though the tweet reads 3:15 p.m. because it was read in an earlier time zone). At around 3:45 p.m. local time this afternoon, the Reedy Creek Fire Department responded to an unknown incident at Space Mountain. There’s no official word from Walt Disney World at this time, but according to the Gotta Go Orlando tweet, Cast Members were evacuating Guests from the Space Mountain attraction and the PeopleMover attraction, and both attractions are closed at this time.

Another tweet from @AshleyLCarter1 confirms that Reedy Creek did respond to a call, but that there was no fire.

As this is a developing story, we will continue to monitor the situation for updates and bring those to you when we have them.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
