A major power outage has happened at Disney’s Animal Kingdom causing multiple delays throughout the park. Read on for all of the details.

Summer Break

With most schools being out right now, crowds at Walt Disney World are definitely increasing along with park capacity. These two make for larger crowds and much longer lines.

Earlier this week, EPCOT brought back Rope Drop which caused serious delays for everyone that morning.

Power Outage

Sometimes while visiting Walt Disney World, the unexpected happens. Weather, power outages, rides breaking down do tend to happen. We have seen major power outages before at EPCOT.

For guests visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom this morning, they are being greeted with some unexpected down time, causing extra long lines at one major attraction and a lot of frustration.

Multiple sources are reporting delays throughout Disney’s Animal Kingdom for multiple attractions.

Take a look from this tweet from @Mas Dog.

Which attractions are down?

Multiple attractions throughout the park remain closed, including DINOSAUR, Expedition Everest, It’s Tough to be a Bug!, and Kali River Rapids.

As of 9:46 a.m. at the time of this article being written, it appears that Flight of Passage is now showing an 180 minute wait, but other attractions are now open.

Kilimanjaro Safaris has been temporarily closed as well as seen in the above photo. The line for this attraction has been closed. At 10:05 AM this line reopened, but the line is incredibly long!

Update: 10:30am Expedition has regained power. It will take 30-40 minutes to bring it back online for guests, so expect it to be available between 11:00-11:15 AM, if all goes smoothly.

This is the second time in a week a major power outage has been reported at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. We are hoping whatever is causing the power outages at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be fixed soon and it’s nothing major.
