Many dream of a trip to a Disney Park. Much planning, preparation, and saving go into a dream vacation. Even if the unexpected like a rain shower happens, many feel that a “rainy day at Disney is still better than a sunny day at home.” Unfortunately, even The Walt Disney Company cannot create the ideal park day.

Things inevitably still cause a trip to the Disney Parks to be a bit less than magical from weather to technical difficulties to attractions, fire alarms, and transportation delays. Disney trains Cast Members in the “5 Keys” which help to provide the highest quality of hospitality to all guests.

These include Safety, Courtesy, Inclusion, Show, and Efficiency. Safety is listed first and is vitally important to provide safety for all guests and fellow Cast Members. Unfortunately, even with the utmost care, safety concerns can still be an issue even at the Disney Parks.

Disney Parks provide amazing entertainment every day for guests. Large light poles are often utilized to help illuminate parade routes for the safety of all performers and guests.

Today as the Disney Parks are flooded with guests celebrating this Thanksgiving holiday week, the unexpected happened. At Disneyland, winds are quite high.

It was during these high winds that one large light stand came crashing down. According to a report, an elderly woman was in the path of this falling light stand. Emergency personnel rushed in and transported this injured guest on a stretcher.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this accident.

According to eyewitnesses, another guest was also injured by this light stand. This guest was bandaged while in the park and could be seen recovering on a park bench.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this accident. We have not yet received an update for either of these injured guests. Disneyland has closed off this portion of the Castle hub and work is taking place on this faulty light stand.

Edited to add: Annaheim Fire shares that a total of three people were injred at Disneyland. High winds are also to blame for a tree falling on Tustin house and a small plane flipping over on the John Wayne aiport runway.
