On Wed March 19 during the Pixar Play Parade, at Disney’s California Adventure, an incident occurred on the Bugs Life Unit. One of the swings came undone from its rigging. It fell vertically down to the unit. The performer on the unit heard a loud crack and was able to jump off. The units have to be re-inspected to be sure they are show safe for continuing performances ASAP. Brady McDonald from LA Times contacted Disney’s Media Relations Dept and received this official information:
During the March 19 performance of the Pixar Play Parade at Disney’s California Adventure, one of the pendulum swings onboard a float vehicle came unhooked from its post. No Cast Members or Guests were injured. In an abundance of caution, we temporarily suspended performances of the Pixar Play Parade on March 20 and 21 to allow for further inspection and evaluation.
The parade is also canceled for Sat, March 22, and Sun, March 23. If you would like to be notified when the parade is back up an running you can stay tuned here or call Disneyland Guest Relations at (714)781-7290.
