Guests Evacuated from Magic Kingdom Attraction Two Days in a Row

Guests Evacuated from Magic Kingdom Attraction Two Days in a Row

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

One attraction in the Magic Kingdom has seen better days. Guests have been evacuated from the ride for two days in a row.

Update 6/3/2021: The ride has just been evacuated again – making it three days in a row. Check out our update HERE.


It is not uncommon for a Disney World ride to face difficulties periodically. Oftentimes, it is due to technical issues, which we see often with rides like Rise of the Resistance. Disney usually tries to remedy this with refurbishments, but these more recent incidents come from a ride that just came out of a lengthy refurbishment!

Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, or PeopleMover for short, has had a rough few days. Various social media users report the ride stopping and going and then having to be evacuated off.

Guests have shared that PeopleMover was not running properly. As a result, they had to be evacuated off the ride.

As you likely know, PeopleMover had been closed for over a year as the ride underwent refurbishment. It mysteriously did not reopen with the rest of the park last July, and then it was officially listed as a refurbishment later in the summer. Several delays caused the ride to not reopen until the end of April.

Now, the ride is facing even more issues with these evacuations.

What to do if you’re stuck

PeopleMover is just one of many attractions that have to be evacuated from time to time. In fact, it happens more often than you think! So, I put together a list of “rules” for getting stuck on a ride at Disney World.

You should always stay calm and follow Cast Member instructions. You should never get out of the ride vehicle on your own or touch parts of the ride on your way out. You can check out more of my tips HERE.

Have you been on the PeopleMover lately? Did the ride run smoothly for you or were you evacuated? Share your experiences with us over on Kenny the Pirate’s Facebook page.

My family and I have experienced evacuating the people mover before the supposed big fix. We were given fast passes to the then new Frozen attraction for the inconvenience but am amazed at the constant unreliability of the people mover.

Rode it once on the 20th and once on the 22nd of May. I thought it was a great ride. It was actually our very first ride at MK and we felt like it gave us a good tour of Tomorrowland.

It seems like it's not a technically complicated ride so why does it breakdown so much???

Been going on for a while. I was there pre-pandemic (Feb 2020) and it went down and people were walking the track then, too.

I was there on May 19 and the People Mover was down in the morning. Went back on the 24, it was fine,but still had a few staop/ starts. Love it anyways.
