    Check out this Disneyland picture

    Taken during a relatively empty Toontown this week. Kind of shows how funny some of the characters can be while interacting with kids!

    Just as the kid gets up to give Pluto a hug, the Toon Town Trolly restarts operations and flattens the kid.

    Really cute pic! I love it when characters have time for interactions like this... SO much better than those stupid autograph books!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Disney Performer Killed By Parade Float

    Authorities Investigating Incident


    POSTED: 3:54 pm EST February 11, 2004
    UPDATED: 6:59 am EST February 12, 2004

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- A costumed worker dressed as the character Pluto was killed after being run over and killed by a Walt Disney World float during an afternoon parade Wednesday, according to Local 6 News.

    Javier Cruz, 38, of Orlando was killed in a backstage area of the Magic Kingdom, near the Splash Mountain ride, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office. Cruz had worked at the park for eight years, officials said.
    Disney spokeswoman Rena Langley said Cruz was toward the end of the parade and was about to enter the park when he was hit. Langley said she wasn't sure if any visitors witnessed what happened.
    "To my knowledge there has never been an accident like this before," Langley said. "Clearly, it's a difficult and tragic day for all of us."
    The Orange County Sheriff's Office was investigating, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration also was sending an investigator.
    "The investigation shows it to be accidental," said Carlos Torres, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Office.


    Donna-Lynne Dalton, recording secretary for Teamsters Local 385, which represents costumed workers at Disney World, said at this point it appears all rules were being followed during the parade.
    "It's just a horrible, horrible tragedy," Dalton said.
    The last time a worker died at Walt Disney World was in 1999 when a part-time employee who had been working in the loading area of the Magic Kingdom Skyway fell to his death. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration later fined Walt Disney World $4,500 for what it called a "serious" violation of safety standards. The ride was closed later that year.
    Cruz's death occurred as Disney chairman and CEO Michael Eisner and other top executives were at the resort for a conference with investment analysts. Cable television giant Comcast Corp. made a surprise bid Wednesday to buy The Walt Disney Co. for more than $54 billion.

    Re: Check out this Disneyland picture

    What are the odds that a Pluto gets run over in the past couple years when someone makes a joke like that. Someone makes a joke about something, and sure enough it's already happened. But I don't think he was trying to make light of the real accident, he was just making a light-hearted statement about a potentially funny fictional situation.

    Wow, people need to lighten up on a board about Disneyland. I mean, unless someone personally knows someone who was killed in an accident like that, there's really no need to reprimand a poster who tells a joke.

    It is cute - it's a real advantage to go on the off season to get more moments like this - it's rare in the summer!

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Yes, that is the tadpole. For once, we got into Toontown at opening (9am), on a non-early entry day (Sunday). Mickey came out in front of his house, Minnie in front of hers, Pluto was running around, and tried to interact with my son, who just sat down. So ... Pluto sat down also, and kept imitating everything he did! After a minute, Donald came out in front of his boat, and Goofy went to the front doorsteps of his house.

    We met Mickey, and Minnie, with no wait. Afterwards, there was a small wait for Donald, but none for Goofy, who was right next to Donald.

    Goofy then stood in line to meet Donald, and when he got up to the front, him and Donald started a fake boxing match. Goofy kept acting silly, getting in front of photos of Donald, and behind Donald and making hand gestures, and finally went around to everyone with the "you're the man" hand sign.

    Pretty funny day. If you have kids, or like character interactions, it's a good place to be with minimal waiting.
