PHOTOS, VIDEO: Audio-Animatronics Literally Lose Their Heads at California Adventure & Disneyland Paris

It’s been a tough week for Disney audio-animatronics. Social media buzzed with photos and videos of audio-animatronics in both Disney’s California Adventure and Disneyland Paris with their heads disconnected. The issues come just a few days after a negative reaction on the Ellen show when Ellen was supposedly presented with what was left of her audio-animatronic from the Universe of Energy.

At Disneyland in California, it was the Ursula audio-animatronic in The Little Mermaid – Ariel’s Undersea Adventure. According to Twitter, the ride was closed sometime before 2pm local time, but not before guests took photos and video. As of 6:15 pm, the attraction is still listed as closed, Thanks to instagram user disneysapsquad and Twitter users @l_uren, @Disney_Gem and @namhmai.

Coincidentally, at Disneyland Paris, the auctioneer pirate in Pirates of the Caribbean was experiencing a similar malfunction. Thanks to instagram user nomidnightpodcast and Twitter user @HOPAJUL.

I told Mr. Chapek that those bolts were too important and he couldn’t use them, but he just wouldn’t listen. He said bandaids and ductape would work just as well on these as it did on the Trump AA.

Fun Fact: The pirate AA is actually a visual representation of all the fan boys freaking out over the scene changing.

These AA’s were giving their heads so that RoboChapek may have a new one.

The animatronics probably lost their heads trying to play Nick’s Price is Right game.
