Power outage hits Disneyland in California

Posted December 28, 2017

The city provides electricity to the park, but the issue was traced to a Disneyland Resort transformer, "and our team is now assessing and working to restore power, " according to a statement released by a park official, which did not give an estimated restoration time.

The outage in Fantasyland and Mickey's Toontown was reported at about 11 a.m. Visitors were escorted off some rides, according to the park's public relations department.

A power outage is affecting parts of Disneyland on Wednesday, leaving some passengers stranded on rides.
