When You’re Evacuated From Disney Attractions: The Videos!

by SharonKurheg

For many Disney fans, being on a ride/attraction when it breaks down is an annoyance. The continuity of the story is broken, your time is limited and you have places to go and characters to see and a Fast Pass Plus that’s due in 10 minutes! For some, that one instance alone might even mean their vacation is ruined! 😉 (not really, of course – some people are just overly dramatic and/or want the opportunity to try to get something “extra” for their so-called “problems.”)

But for others, being on an attraction that’s suddenly “101” (Disneyspeak for “a ride is down”) while they’re on it, could mean what they see as the ultimate experience – being evacuated from the ride. And with that, you may get to see the ride with the emergency lights on, as well as backstage/behind-the-scenes areas that guests rarely, if ever see.

It’s relatively rare to be evacuated from an attraction and even less so for someone to videotape said evacuation (because Disney Cast Members [employees] are trained to try to not let videotaping happen, if possible, for fear of “spoiling the magic). But it happens here and there. Here are some Disney attraction evacuation videos that we’ve found:

(WARNING: If you don’t want to “spoil the magic” by seeing backstage areas, don’t watch these videos! Also, I take no responsibility for the quality of these videos in any capacity. And, of course, none of them were videotaped by me. I’ve been going to Disney since 1979 and have yet to be evacuated. Sigh.)
