It looks like a possible fire is emanating either from the Lunching Pad or the PeopleMover ramp, causing smoke to billow down the ramp.

Reports are also stating that RCFD is on the scene, with three fire trucks rushing over to the entrance of the Magic Kingdom. Reedy Creek Fire Department is at the site of the potential fire, as 15 firefighters were seen going up the moving ramp leading up into the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover loading area. Both the Astro Orbiter and the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover are temporarily closed, with Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin and the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor still open, according to the My Disney Experience app.

The PeopleMover is now being evacuated, with guests seen exiting from the opposite ramp.

We will continue to bring updates as the story develops. No injuries have been reported.

  1. I hope the PeopleMover will be OK. It’s a beautifully scenic tour of Tomorrow Land and the Castle area. My wife and I love it (and take countless photos while we’re on it).

  2. Probably a high pressure hydraulic leak. At high pressures, hydraulic fluid can vaporize when forced through microscopic cracks in valves, hydraulic lines, and manifolds. Interested to find out what it was.

  3. I’ve never seen one of my favourite attractions at the Magic Kingdom closed because of smoke coming out of the moving ramp. I hope Disney doesn’t call the possible fire unexpected down time.
