Park-Wide Power Outage Leads to Shutdown of All Rides at Disneyland Paris

This morning, a power outage hit Disneyland Paris. The result? The complete shutdown of all the rides.

That’s right, Peter Pan stopped flying, the Buzz Lightyear Lasers stopped blasting, and Crush stopped coasting. Sadly, it’s not really what you want on a Friday!

As reported on by ED92, all the rides and attractions across the parks were inoperable. Naturally, crowds of disgruntled guests ensued, with many turning back to Lake Disney and the nearby hotel for escape. “D Assistance” cast members were stationed to offer help and reassurance in the park, alongside characters who were out meeting & greeting to lighten spirits.

The situation was resolved after two and a half hours, plenty of hassle, and presumably lots of getting lost in Alice’s Curious Labyrinth, which needs only the sun to remain open.

They never closed the park entrance and they continued to let people in with no warning… Read more »

Isn’t this the second power incident at that park in the last year or so? Makes me wonder what’s going on there.

We were there over the weekend and the power went out at different times during the day. We got stuck in the Start ours shop as everything went dark but we’re helped out by Disney staff with their glow torches and we’re great.

I was at Disneyland Paris on this day which was my birthday. After driving for 8 hours from our home in South East London to spend my birthday here, we were greeted with an hours queue to get into the car park, an hours queue to get through the bag check with no organisation for queuing, just a crowd getting aggravated with one another. Spent two hours walking around trying to find something to do that wasn’t heavily crowded. Spent 40 minutes queuing up to get a bottle of water and a sad hot dog. As the rides hadn’t opened… Read more »
