    The worst place to be is underground rides like Space, Splash, HM or POTC.

    If it hits and I'm at the DLR I hope I'm in DCA instead.

    Spoiler alert: those aren't "underground" for the most part.

    Nothing could stop me from DL! Well...I wouldn't say nothing. I mean, a meteor could come crashing into earth and blow us all up but still, what are the chances of that really happening?

    It's all about the stats. True, we have a lot of earthquakes in California but so far there have been more harmless earthquakes than catastrophic ones. You have better chances of winning the lotto than getting caught up in a catastrophe.

    Im sure there are building codes that need to be met for most...if not all of the structures at Disneyland and everywhere else that earthquakes are common... disneyland...If alice in wonderland is shut down for such a stupid issue , im sure the buildings must be structurally sound considering the amount of quakes that really do occur

    PotC and HM are really only two stories tall. Also, in the case of PotC, most of the second floor is empty, allowing for the illusion of an open, nighttime sky.

    I think it would be one of the first things you would be worried about if you were there at the time.

    Possibly. However, I can also see there being a lot of injury and death from people (primarily children) getting trampling by crowds, especially if a major earthquake hit DLR on a busy day.

    OMG! Just the idea is enough to give me nightmares! That would likely make the swinging gondolas a much more 'thrilling' experience. Please excuse me while I go try not to be sick...

    No offense intended, but unless you mean winning $2 via the lotto, I think this statement is really off-base. Firstly, how do you define getting caught up in? Secondly, southern California will definitely get hit with another very significant earthquake, eventually. At that point, I can guarantee that you'll see a lot more people 'caught up in' the resulting damage, then have ever won a significant amount of money via the lottery. Lastly, that doesn't even take into account other catastrophes common to this area, such as wild fires and floods. Heck! I live in So. Cal. and, years ago, a legitimate tornado (cat. 1) passed right over my car. Does that qualify all of us that were in the car as likely to win the lottery? God I hope so!

    This is why I'm really concerned about the huge number of small to moderate earthquakes that have hit the same fault and other interrelated fault lines, in So. Cal. and Northern Baja, in the last year. It makes me think of a bottle of champaign that is getting shaken and shaken; I just don't want to see the cork pop out of that bottle.

    DCA's structures pose no problems. Disneyland is an entirely different story. Some buildings are ok. Others do need some retrofitting. Take IASW as an example. What really needs to be done is for the roof to be torn off and support columns to be added to the inside. As it is now you basically have four walls supporting the roof. It could be strengthened though.

    I'm talking about all the corridors, access ways, stairways, and all these other elements that wrap around and intertwine with each other. I'm concerned about any of those movin' around.

    ASYLIM is 100% correct. BE PREPARED! Do not expect a fairy godmother to come and rescue you because the chances are real good that you are going to be on your own for at least 72 hours after "the big one" hits.

    Water, food, MONEY! Have a grab-n-go bag in your car. Keep supplies in your house. Look in the front page of your phone book because there is tons of info there. Keep at least 1/4 of a tank of gas in your car - always. Plastic bags for your toilet. (Think about it.)

    I lived through Sylmar, Northridge, Whittier and 1,000 small quakes. There is no peace of mind like being prepared.

    BTW: Team Kate

    Keep in mind that "soon" in geological time is about 1000 years.

    It takes 3 days for emergency help, so have 3 days worth of stuff at home. If I were at Disneyland, I would go to the TS Island and try and catch some ducks to eat, or maybe just buy some from the food court.
