Despite every effort you’ve put into planning your Disney World vacation, sometimes, things can inevitably go wrong.
We always HOPE this doesn’t happen, but technology can be a bit… finicky, and attractions can break down or stop from time to time. We were taking a leisurely ride on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover this morning to get a good look at the construction progress on TRON: Lightcycle Run, when the ride got stuck!
It’s the sometimes unfortunate (or super cool, if you’re into “behind the magic” sort of things!) reality of theme parks — rides can malfunction and break down without warning.
That looks to be the case with the PeopleMover in Magic Kingdom this morning, as one of our reporters got stuck on the ride!
Yikes!! PeopleMover is currently down and one of our reporters is stuck on it 😳

Cast Members made the rounds to check on all passengers and to make sure everyone was alright, but no word had been mentioned on why the ride stopped. After about twenty minutes, the ride vehicles began moving again and we were back on our way!

I cannot think of a better place to be “stuck” than on the PeopleMover – even in the dark Space Mountain segment!
Did you have to stay on the ride for the 20 minutes or were you evacuated off…?
Claire Teter says
I was on it inside space mountain– fortunately NOT where the uphill coaster goes because that part is SO loud! It took a while but they got us and gave everyone a bonus LL which was a nice touch.

On March 30th we were not only stuck on it for quite some time, but we were then evacuated from it…..while we were waiting it was actually a nice break, sitting in the shade with a lovely breeze and chatting with other riders…..the walk off was fairly lengthy however and I felt badly for another lady who was clearly struggling with it….they also gave us the bonus lightening lane for the inconvenience….and we now have another good story from our happy place
We got stuck on the People Mover just last week when we were at Magic Kingdom. We sat there for about 20 minutes, and then we all had to get off and walk down the track to get off. It was an adventure! And we got a free Lightning Lane out of it, which we used to ride the Mad Tea Party ride again.
