When you go to Disney World every day, you often see evacuations happen, both on rides and in buildings.
We’ve seen it at the PeopleMover, on Splash Mountain, and even at Kali River Rapids. It happens for a variety of reasons, but we always want to keep you updated on these situations! And today, it happened at a Disney World restaurant!
Cast Members haven’t shared why the restaurant was evacuated, but we did hear the fire alarm and lights were flashing.

Those who were in the lower level with Sonny Eclipse were evacuated through there, rather than back up through the rest of the restaurant. The bottom part with Sonny Eclipse was blocked off.
Cast Members were also doing their best to work with guests who had Mobile Orders, but had not yet received their food.
It’s not just Cosmic Ray’s that’s been evacuated, though. The whole building is currently closed off from guests, which includes Star Traders and the bathrooms there.
The PeopleMover also has no people on it because it runs through that building.
We also saw two Cast Members headed over to check the situation out.
Update: Since this post was written, everything at the building was reopened, EXCEPT for Cosmic Ray’s. We’ll continue to keep an eye on the situation and keep you updated!
