FWC: Black Bear Encounter Forces Closure of Over a Dozen Rides at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom

Greater than a dozen rides and sights at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, have been closed on Monday because of the presence of a black bear noticed in a tree on the theme park. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Fee (FWC) confirmed the sighting and said that employees have been engaged on capturing and relocating the bear. Whereas journey closures usually are not unusual, having so many sights closed concurrently shortly after the park opened for the day is uncommon. The rides listed as briefly closed on the My Disney Expertise app embody standard sights comparable to Large Thunder Mountain Railroad, Haunted Mansion, and Pirates of the Caribbean. A full checklist of the closed sights as of 11 a.m. contains Beneath The Sea – Journey of The Little Mermaid, Walt Disney World Railroad – Fantasyland, Walt Disney World Railroad – Frontierland, Walt Disney World Railroad – Predominant Avenue, U.S.A., Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, Large Thunder Mountain Railroad, The Corridor of Presidents, Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Pirates of the Caribbean, Swiss Household Treehouse, Nation Bear Jamboree, Liberty Sq. Riverboat, and Tom Sawyer Island. The Magic Kingdom’s working hours are from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., in keeping with Disney’s web site. Additional updates on the state of affairs are awaited.
