Breaking: People Mover Trains Collide at Magic Kingdom

Breaking: People Mover Trains Collide at Magic Kingdom

This morning two Tomorrowland Transit Authority trains collided at the Magic Kingdom. Read on for more details.

According to various users on Twitter, two Tomorrowland Transit Authority trains collided this morning in the Magic Kingdom on the Peoplemover attraction.

Guests shared pictures of the collision, and it is difficult to tell from the pictures exactly what is happening.

No injuries have been reported as of this writing. We at Kenny the Pirate sincerely hope that all guests involved were uninjured and that they get some serious Fastpass+ love from the mouse for having endured such a scary incident.

The Twitterverse is mocking the incident as just another piece of evidence that things are falling apart at the seams under Bob Chapek’s leadership.

More than likely, it’s just some unfortunate timing for Disney’s new CEO. Between the Jungle Cruise boat incident yesterday, the heavy police presence near Epcot, and continued closings of the Asian Disney parks due to the coronavirus it’s been a tough week for the Disney Parks family.

Neither of these incidents will affect my family’s touring plans. My son absolutely loves the Peoplemover and probably considers it one of the top three attractions at the Magic Kingdom (he’s not big on thrills).

As for the Jungle Cruise, it’s my husband’s absolute favorite. Plus, the skipper knew exactly what to do.

Plus, the twitter user who first shared the photos of their boat with water covering their feet reassured us that wet feet was the worst of the incident.

We will share more information, or write another post when and if Disney Parks releases an official statement.

What do you think? Do either of these incidents make you nervous for your next park visit? Think it is indicative of an overall trend of a lack of attention to park operations? Let us know in the comments on Facebook, and let’s keep the conversation going in our Facebook group.

My wife and I got stuck on Pirates of the Caribbean one time. Took about ten minutes before the lights came up. Does kind of change your view on the ride a little when you see it all uncovered. We sat there another 15 minutes waiting for them to “fix” the problem and repeatedly listen to the recording telling us to stay seated. Finally when people were getting really tired of it, they told us people were coming to help us off the ride. Men in waders had to come into the water to release the boats one at a time and move them to the side where we could step out. Probably about 45 minutes from beginning to end. We were warned repeatedly that we had to go behind the scenes to get out and ABSOLUTELY no pics, and to not discuss it with anyone. At the end of a long dark winding walk inside the ride, where you could hardly see (I fell on one knee- lady in front of us fell down on both) we exited. We were late getting started on mickey’s Christmas party that we had bought tickets for- and they gave us one fast pass each for 1 ride. Really felt they dropped the ball on that one.

This was not a weight issue.

While I feel for the people involved I think these rides and attractions are as safe as can be. I’m sure they are inspected regularly and for as many of billions Of hours they have been going these minor incidents are ok. Now if Disney does nothing about it that’s a different story. Just my two cents!

The wheelchair boat has a raised platform on which the chair rides. The chair would never have been near the water or in danger of even getting the wheels wet. My husband is a quad and we always rife the Jungle Cruise.

I got stuck in Space Ship Earth with my Granddaughter who at the time was five ( now 13) we sat looking at the Earth for awhile the lights came on an we were told we would have to evacuate! Everyone started to grumble my Granddaughter jumps up Best Day Ever we get to see inside SSE! She was so excited everyone’s attitude just changed her happiness was so overwhelming it affected everyone! Things happen we don’t like but as the saying goes if you are dealt a lemon just make the lemonade! One of our best memories to this day!
