  • WDW Accident Prone?

    Anyone else notice all the unfortunate events that have been happening to Disneyworld? Is this a sign of things to come or will karma reward the ill-fated ways?

      More people, more accidents.

      Many of the recent accidents have been due to a guest's preexisting condition.

      Disney is responsible for the recent Kali River Rapids accident but there are inherent risks when you partake in any theme park ride.

        Agree, most of the accidents recently weren't Disneys fault. I think two of the past deaths have been related to heart problems, the grad night thing wasn't caused by Disney, the women just the other day, the shooting of the police officers and I'm sure that there might be a few more but, in general, Disney's not doing bad. Heck, there are more deaths a year locally in my own town.

          The WDW property is twice the size of Manhattan and they have hundreds of thousands of people on property every day. I'd say there amount of accidents is fairly low. WDW is basically a city with new people coming in every day and others leaving. Its no suprise when someone gets sick, dies, or gets hurt. The accident on Kali was the first that I'm aware of at WDW where the accident was with a problem on a disney ride. Everything else has been due to pre-existing conditions. And it doesn't sound like the accident was too serious. A fracture is bad, but nothing out of the ordinary for theme park fare.

            Agreed! With all of the people coming and going on property every day, it is a surprise that there aren't more accidents.

            Heck, there are more deaths a year locally in my own town.
            I hadn't thought about it that way but you are right. It is because it is Disney that it makes national news.

              I've done the math before. A fraction of 1% of all guests to Walt Disney World will get injured. I think the issue is more than these people got hurt at Walt Disney World and it still makes more a great news story.

                There is no karma. Just ask Osama bin Laden.

                  Earl J Hickey would probably disagree.
