  • News CBS 2 reporting attractions down tonight due to power outages

    I was watching the local CBS2 in southern California and they were showing a helicopter shot of the Disneyland resort saying that some attractions were down because of transformer and power outages. Has anyone heard more or were you at the resort tonight and can shed some light on this?

    I was at Downtown Disney, everything there seemed fine for the most part. As far as the park goes, I'm not sure. It is VERY windy right now in Anaheim though..

      I wasn't at DL, but when I glanced through a DL wait-times app last night there were a lot of rides reported closed (even DL Railroad which I don't remember ever seeing as closed before [but I'm sure it happens]). A power outage would be a logical explanation.

        I know they close the DLRR for the Candlelight ceremony, that might be why as well.

              My daughter was next in line for Tower of Terror when the power went out on half the park. I was at the Mad T Party and didn't notice anything till she came and told me. I know by the end of the night the rides were working again because my daughter actually dared to still go on Tower.

                  From my local (Ohio) news station, as seen on facebook:
                  ANAHEIM, CA (KCBS/FOX) - A transformer explosion caused power outages in the "happiest place on earth."
                  Strong winds left much of the theme park in the dark.
                  More than 2,000 homes in Los Angeles and nearly 2,000 more in eastern LA County were without power after fierce wind gusts knocked down trees and power lines.
                  The National Weather Service said winds gusted above 50 miles per hour in southern California's mountain passes and reached 45 miles per hour in Beverly Hills and Malibu.
                  Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

                    In the US, and in the park's electricity is supplied in a redundant fashion. Also it is set up in different ciruits. This means if local areas loose power it doesn't mean DLR does. And while some some parts of the parks may loose power not all parts will.

                    In your home it's almost the same. Imagine if you have a large room with two entrances, it may have a switch near each entrance. If one switch doesn't work, you can use the other switch to turn the lights on. Likewise it you blow the fuse, or breaker when you plug something in in the kitchen, it doesn't knock the power out in the family room.

                    This may be why ToT went down but Mad T Party kept going. Or ToT may of been a coinicidence and unrelated to the reported outage.

                      Re: CBS 2 reporting attractions down tonight due to power outages

                      I was in Carsland when as I was walking towards the restrooms behind Flos I saw a bright blue/white flash come from the area between Cars and Screamin. I thought I was seeing things since at the same time the lights flickered a little. Next thing I saw was an even bigger flash and the lights went out in cars land for a few seconds then the back up generators kicked in. Inside the restrooms only some lights were on..with one major pain was the sinks were of course out of order. Saw many people scrambling who had just got soap when the power went out.

                      Flos was shut down immediately as well as the Cozy Cones. I heard RSR was actually running but never confirmed it myself.

                      Dont know when everything came back because I was already on my way out when this happened.

                        I was stuck on Tower of Terror at the 13th floor when the power went out. Had to wait approximately 30 minutes before they got us down.

                              The questions is how did they get out, of the Twilight Zone.

                                  I was at the park for Mr. Toad at 4:30, dinner at Carnation at 5pm, in line and seeing Candlelight from 6:30 to 8:30pm, then over to Haunted Mansion, Train (closed during Candlelight Processional shows from 5-9, and would have stayed closed through fireworks, but when fireworks were cancelled due to winds, they brought one train back out), Small World, and finally Space Mountain at 10:30pm...never was aware of any problem, except that HM line did stop completely for about 10 minutes.
