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.
