ANAHEIM, Calif. (KGTV) — Guests were forced from the fastest ship in the galaxy at Disneyland Friday, after a massive earthquake struck Southern California.
The magnitude 7.1 quake hit the Ridgecrest area about 160 miles east of the theme park just before 8:20 p.m.
Video from Disneyland after the earthquake showed guests being evacuated from the park’s Millennium Falcon ride in “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.” Guests in other areas of the park also reported rides temporarily closed for employees to conduct safety inspections.
Parents, check your strollers. Disneyland is putting new size restrictions in place calling for smaller toddler transports. The goal is to improve traffic flow before the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land opens.
As of May 1, if the stroller doesn’t fit, you must git. Or, you can rent a stroller from Disneyland that conforms with the stricter guidelines.
Strollers must be no wider than 31 inches (36 inches currently) and no longer than 52 inches (unchanged), park officials said. While many stroller models meet those specifications, some of the larger double-wides probably do not.
A lawsuit was filed on Tuesday by Brian Virag of My Bed Bug Lawyer Inc., alleging that the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, California, did not provide a habitable room for his client during her visit in April 2018.
“This was not a situation where a person sustained one or two bites,” Virag said. “Ms. Eldridge was bitten throughout her body, including, but not limited to her face, ears, neck, arms, and back. She was absolutely butchered.”
Disneyland Resort spokesperson Liz Jaeger said in a statement to USA Today, “We take extensive preventative measures so that our guests are comfortable and safe during their hotel stays, and when needed, take aggressive steps to rectify,”
