But beware! Nothing is more powerful than...a crocodile running at full speed.
A typical sibling trip on the weekend, my sister and I went to Disneyland last night (1/3), and were treated to a little bit of extra "magic". So we were passing by the 8:45 show of Fantasmic over by the "secret path" in front of Splash Mountain going towards the show when all of a sudden there is a loud WHAM. We look and we see the Ariel barge floating back towards its origin point. Odd, but nothing tragic. Then we make the turn where the Mark Twain or Columbia usually parks, and in front of that place is Tick Tock from the Peter Pan segment right in front of several people, with a crew boat surrounding it. The two other princess floats are standing there, and when the segment ends, they remain there. All I know from this point is that it's not going to end well. Th show gets cancelled right as the Evil Queen summons the Magic Mirror, and people are mad. At that point, all I kne was that we had to get somewhere where crowds wouldn't eat us up. We dove into the Mansion, and walked right into the ride to avoid the madness outside.
As the night went on, I learned that the Crocodile float had barged right into the Ariel barge when transitioning into their scenes. The more I thought about it, the performers did seem a little shaken about not going on, because they were literally shaken! Hope that no one was seriously injured, even though the later show (I assume) went off just fine.
If anyone has a link to this event, please post it below! Nothing on it at the moment I'm afraid!
