Once upon a time, in the enchanting world of Disney, a group of guests embarked on a thrilling adventure aboard one of the park’s renowned attractions. As the ride began, one guest experienced a momentary lapse of judgment and dropped their precious cell phone.

While this seems like the start of a fairytale, sadly, this happened to guests at Disney World. Walt Disney World allows guests to bring bags, phones, ponchos, umbrellas, and more to attractions. However, some guests decide that pulling phones out to record themselves or taking a selfie during the attraction allows them to keep the magical moment alive.

Walt Disney World Resort has four theme parks: Magic Kindom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Each Disney attraction offers different attractions, and worlds for guests to experience and explore.

Magic Kingdom is home to iconic attractions such as “it’s a small world,” Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and newer attractions like TRON Lightcycle/Run. Guests can visit different lands at Magic Kingdom like Tomorrowland, Frontierland, Adventureland, Main Street U.S.A. and many more. Walt Disney World guests can spot Cinderella Castle at the center of Magic Kingdom.

EPCOT and Disney’s Animal Kingdom allow guests to learn about our planet and different animals while having fun. EPCOT is home to four neighborhoods: World Nature, World Celebration, World Showcase, and World Discovery. Each different location offers different attractions and experiences for guests. Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, guests can experience thrilling attractions or be up close and personal with wild animals. While these parks are so different, learning about the wonders of the World or Animals, it’s clear that Disney World guests can find something everyone enjoys.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a captivating and immersive journey into the world of movies, television, and entertainment. This Disney park pays homage to the glamour and nostalgia of Hollywood’s golden age while offering cutting-edge attractions and experiences that captivate guests of all ages. Star Wars fans can visit Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, or guests can hop over to Toy Story Land, but beware “Andy is coming. ” Guests head to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the family-friendly attractions such as Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, and Toy Story Mania! These attractions do not require a height requirement. Guests can also experience thrilling high-speed attractions such as Slinky Dog Dash, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and many more.

In a viral TikTok, Disney World guests were trapped on The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror after a guest dropped their phone. This seems rare but can happen to anyone while freefalling. The guests can hear that the phone is not going to survive. Due to the attraction running over the phone, guests had to be evacuated from the attraction.


Once in a lifetime opportunity! RIP Phone 🪦🕊️ #disney#disneyworld#orlando#towerofterror#twilightzonetowerofterror#twilightzonelevator#phone#fyp
