  • [Question] HUGE black smoke billowing from Park today..

    @ around 3:50pm was coming home from work, saw a GIGANTIC black cloud coming from the roundhouse or receiving area near Cast Place like a structure fire. Was thinking maybe the boys in the roundhouse had a boiler problem or fire got out of hand. It was big enough to get AFD called..anyone hear anything?

    That would explain why we smelled smoke when we were leaving around 415 and APD had the street to the parking structure blocked off. I wonder what happened

      One person on twitter mentions it. Seems strange that it wasn't mentioned a lot more.

      Was it definitely IN Disneyland/backstage? Or could it have been a car fire on Ball?

        Obviously they've really upped the ante on the big thunder mountain effects.

          In the park, but backstage. Roundhouse area roughly...

            It could have been at the roundhouse, but the engines inside the roundhouse should be "cold" or not under fire if the park is currently open. The locomotives under fire would be out on the railroad in the park.

              Right, my buddy Ron works in there and I am familiar with the firing processes, but you never know...of course they also have diesel/gasoline tanks back there too and fireworks,etc...it was big, just wish we knew ..could be a hush hush thing if it were really serious.

                  That is true, I think there's only biodiesel back there (the Disneyland Railroad engines burn B98) but the fireworks are also in pretty close to the roundhouse too over behind Toontown. Was the railroad or Toontown closed at all today?

                    Maybe it was one of those magic spells from Once Upon a Time.

                      My money is on car fire...burning gasoline can produce a lot of black smoke.....if it were something actually inside Disneyland(back stage or not) I'd think the news would have been all over it.

                        Wouldn't it be purple then, or maybe green?

                          The color must be off on my computer. (I stream it on Netflix)

                            Considering I travel along Ball Road @ Cast Place daily and saw the smoke coming from Disney property I can assure you it wasn't a car.
