The third-quarter injury report for Walt Disney World has been released thanks to the MOU Exempt Facilities Report. Typically, amusement parks and fairs are subject to inspection from the State of Florida. However, “Permanent facilities that employ at least 1,000 full-time employees and that maintain full-time, in-house safety inspectors” are exempt from state inspection.

To remain exempt, the operators must report serious injuries to Florida’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services every quarter for the MOU Exempt Facilities Report. Let’s take a look at the report for the third quarter of 2019.

Interesting that all the seizure ones state pre-existing conditions except for the Expedition Everest incident!

My mom fell at Hollywood Studios and broke her ankle on 9/25/19. Disney took her to the er. I wonder why she is not listed?

Perhaps the incident wasn’t associated with a ride..
