There was a flurry of excitement and misinformation yesterday afternoon as stories of Disneyland evacuations and an explosion in ToonTown swirled on Twitter, Facebook and even international media. However, the “Explosion” was merely a water bottle which popped loudly when the dry ice it contained caused it to burst. Police were called and the area secured as a precaution. CBS news is reporting that a castmember has been arrested in conjunction with this event. | We have three new articles for you today. A new Marvel World, Mouth of the Mouse and a Disney News Round Up filled with info, videos and podcasts.
