Haunted Mansion Lawsuit

The Haunted Mansion is one of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World. It combines both “spooky” and “funny” elements to create a “haunted” experience that is uniquely Disney.

This attraction combines the work of some of the best Disney Imagineers in the company’s history to create illusions and tricks that bring guests back again and again. 

However, one man probably won’t be riding again as he suffered a serious injury and is now suing Disney. Back in April 2022, the man was boarding the attraction. A Cast Member hit the emergency stop button with no warning, which caused him to fall off the ride.

According to the lawsuit, which was just filed, the man said he fell off the ride and hit the ground, suffering “severe and permanent injuries”. He is suing the resort for $50,000.

It’s alleged that Disney was negligent for “failing to maintain the premises in a reasonable safe condition” and failed to correct or make him aware of the dangerous situation. 

Recent Incident

This is not the first time this year Disney is being sued due to injuries. A woman visiting Epcot on March 24, 2023 recently sued Disney over an incident that occurred that day. While she was aboard the Monorail that day, the doors malfunctioned and slammed shut onto her body.

According to court records, the woman was in excruciating pain while being stuck between the doors for several minutes. 5 male guests were eventually able to get her loose, the records read.

However, the lawsuit alleges that Disney’s Cast Members did not step in to help during the incident. Instead, they stated over the intercom that the Monorail was malfunctioning and would need to shut down temporarily. This would allow Disney to restart the entire system.

In response to this incident, the woman accuses Disney of failing to both maintain safe operating conditions aboard the Monorail and properly correct the issue once it happened. The lawsuit seeks compensation for damages over $50,000.

Do you think these Guests will win their court case? Have you ever witnessed an incident like this at Disney World? Let us know in the comments below.

We had a great trip the last week of July this year. The cast members at end of Rise of Resistance almost ruined it however. The night of July 30 around 7:30 to 7:45 there was a big lightning storm that started at Hollywood studios as we were getting off the ride. The cast members would not allow us to stay under shelter when we got off the ride. They literally forced everyone out into the storm. They were forcefully yelling (yes yelling above the thunder) for all of us to get out. If someone had gotten hit by lightning (some hits were very close) there would have been lawsuits. The cast members were probably following procedure for rain, but I can't believe they were following the correct procedure for lightning. They need to train their cast members to use more common sense. There was plenty of room at the end of the ride for several groups to wait until the lightning let up. We had a similar situation happen in Animal Kingdom several years ago when The Lion King let out.

We were mini putting on the same trip when lightning struck a few miles away. The cast members immediately called everyone in to get under shelter even though the sun was shining by us. These lightning strikes at Hollywood studios were right on property several within a mile as the thunder we heard was right after the strike.

I think the woman who is sueing has every right sounds serious, what if it had been a child caught in those doors.Those doors should have some kind of emergency sensor.

Lawsuits due to negligence is one thing but accidental situations like these are just accidents. Pretty soon people are going to start suing weather reporters for incorrectly predicting rain that caused a car accident. These lawsuits are ridiculous. People are always looking for a handout. Then we wonder why Disney has gotten so expensive. They have to up charge to cover these costs.

Is $50,000 the threshold for Disney to fight a lawsuit in court? Seems sketchy.
