    Re: Earthquake [merged]

    I was in the pin shop in Frontierland when the earthquake hit. At first I thought the counter was rocking, then I looked up to see that the antler chandeliers were swaying. It lasted about 30 seconds, but it was pretty mild rolling. Street entertainment started almost immediately back up. So far, I know that Winnie the Pooh and Haunted Mansion are running, and I think the train may reopen soon, as well.

    Not too bad for my first earthquake!

            Re: Earthquake [merged]

            I was standing with my twins next to the entrance to Frontierland, watching the ducks and fish. I could not understand why the bridge rail was moving. And the ground felt like it was moving side to side - for a long time!

            Then I noticed the lamps on the bridge were swaying back and forth and the water was sloshing from side to side.

            Walking through Frontierland, everyone was talking about the earthquake and BTMRR was closed. I realized then that all the rides were going to be closed for a while, so we left.

            And we got to ride a tram with doors! Win!

Everyone complains. It is a good time to grab a seat and a turkey leg or dole whip and people watch!
              It would suck to be a CM during an earthquake and having to deal with guests complaining or demanding a refund over something that was waaaaaay beyond their control.

              And what if they plan to evacuate the parks and close for the remainder of the day?

              Do they ever give a compensation to the guests for when earthquakes occur? Like a discount ticket or a free day ticket or anything like that?

                        I find it funny that up here in Oregon, they make sure to tell everyone that Disneyland was evacuated. Heh.
                        I find it a bit hysterical too ... as news media love drama.

                        So a quake 108 miles south of Tijuana hits ... Is felt AS FAR NORTH as downtown LA.

                        If we are making a big enough drama out of this .... then when a bad shaker does hit the area ... will people be able to handle it (?).

If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

                                    I dont blame people for making drama out of earthquakes. You never know where or when one will happen and there's usually a large number of deaths that result. I have a feeling that an earthquake in Mexico is gonna constitute a high death toll.

                                    People will just handle earthquakes the way they do. Of course I am in Indiana and I didnt take the little Illinois earthquake we got two years ago all that seriously. I actually slept through the whole thing. If the magnitude had been bigger I probably would've been dead.

                                    Is it bad of me to agree? The only earthquake I ever experience was a tiny one that occured while I was sleeping. I felt the bed shake but it wasnt any different from when I'm moving around on the bed. I live in a very squeaky house.

                                        I wish I was there. I would've been like "Your leaving already? Oh well, more rides for me!"

                                        LOL. I would be surprised if DL's a ghost town tonight. I would imagine people going back to their hotels and coming back later tonight when things are back to normal.
