There was an explosion reported at Toontown at Disneyland. This is possibly an accident. Hopefully no one was hurt.


News is coming out of Disneyland right now that there was an explosion reported in the theme park's Toontown section, specifically from a trash can. Reports off of Twitter from people on the scene say that police are evacuating the area, and that fire crews are coming in. Photos from Twitter also show crowds leaving Disneyland in an orderly fashion.


More news to come soon.

Police were evacuating people Tuesday evening at Disneyland's Toontown after a report of an explosion that appeared to have involved dry ice, authorities said. No injuries were reported in the blast, which was called in about 5:30 p.m, Sgt. Robert Dunn of the Anaheim Police Department said. "As a precaution we have evacuated Toontown," Dunn told The Times. He said the dry ice appeared to have been placed in a plastic bottle. Officers on the scene were gathering evidence.
seems like it was a dry ice bomb and that no one appears to have been injured so i would say prankster shenigans as opposed to terror or some kind of deliberate attack perse but still not exactly the thing you expect from a visit to Disneyland

I don't know. The police say dry ice in or near the trash can caused the explosion. And all I can do is draw a blank. Was this an accident or something like a prank?

Yeah, it sounds confusing because who would bring dry ice and cause an explosion in a trash bin. I was thinking a employe accidentally caused the explosion some way. Accidents happen.

www.themeparkinsider.com... this one has a bit more information as it seems the park has dry ice and park guests are allowed to bring it in it could have either been a park employee or some one who brought it in with them but again at least no injuries so we have that to be thankful for at least


Update 2: And here's your relevant Wikipedia entry on how dry ice in a bottle can explode. Multiple readers have reported that dry ice is readily accessible inside the park, as it is used in ice cream carts to keep items frozen cold. Furthermore, although Disneyland does have a bag check outside the front gate, a former security employee said that dry ice isn't something that would typically be kept from being brought into the park, so long as it appears to be used to cool food items.

Update:

"UPDATE: Anaheim police confirms to news that “dry ice in a plastic bottle” was the cause of the explosion. Evacuations were ordered but no persons were injured. Robert Lopez of the LA Times reports that the dry ice was no accident. “Police tell us dry ice ‘bomb’ was placed in plastic container…. Sheriff’s tell us they are rolling a bomb squad to assist.”

Thanks for the additional information. I saw this news on Yahoo and decided to share the news because I thought it could be news to share.

en.wikipedia.org... could have very well been deliberate but with them not really wanting to hurt people as opposed to just scare with a really loud noise,i dont see why dry ice would be thrown away like that accidentally so im leaning prank or jerk then any one trying to do real harm.

edit to add it seems that even if they were just trying to make a joke they commited a felony in california


A law in California that defines "destructive device" includes a list of "weapons" including "[a]ny sealed device containing dry ice (CO2) or other chemically reactive substances assembled for the purpose of causing an explosion by a chemical reaction"
from above source

it was no accident? Weird! I can see why if someone wanted to attack people they would chose a place with a lot of people like a theme park. However, if this wasn't an accident it sounds like a foolish individual or group did this then.

you did good op you got this up pretty quickly and with how limited info we had in the beginning it is defiantly news worthy as this could hurt disneys profits so they are likely to want in investigate it quickly to find out if it was one of their employees or a park guest and get them charged quickly and publicly so that the future guests wont be freaking out about a lack of security star and flag op.

No problem. Another member linked the news it wasn't an accident. So I would think someone caused this. I don't know as a prank or as to cause damage in some way. But the law would come down hard on them.

That is strange. It seems she is conspiracy believer since it says the Boston Bombers were framed. That's what it looked like to me on the top of the page.

To me anyone that does this sort of thing is a (complete idiot!)...that recently graduated from (moron school).

I hope they are able to find out who did this; if indeed it was not an accident.

Yes, I agree with you. So far there is nothing new with the latest breaking news. Here is a website with the same news for more additional information.

Here is an update from Disneyland.

This afternoon, a small bang was heard in a trash can at Mickey's Toontown. In an abundance of caution, the area was evacuated. There were no injuries and no reported damage. We are working with local authorities who are now on-site and reviewing.


It's the same news with the local authorities reviewing the incident.

A "Toontown evacuation" sounds like it would be a chaotic, funny scene.

Isn't this getting a little over the top? I'm not seeing anything here but "An abundance of caution" A bang in a trash can with no damage or injuries seems a little... Well...Over the top! What the hell is happening to us?
