Power restored to Disneyland after outage shuts down a dozen rides

Disneyland officials have confirmed that power has been restored to "the happiest place on Earth" after an outage at the California park shut down about a dozen rides Wednesday, prompting numerous guests to seek refunds.

"We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience to all of our Guests who were impacted by today’s power outage at Disneyland," the park's Twitter feed tweeted just before 6:00 p.m. PST on Wednesday. "We are happy to report that all attractions are fully operational."

The tweet came just hours after Disneyland an outage that shut down about a dozen rides, FOX5 San Diego reported.

Power was fully restored later that afternoon, according to a statement from the company, tweeted by a local reporter.

"The power issue at The Disneyland Resort has been repaired and power has been restored to all areas of the resort," the tweet said. "It is anticipated that we will be fully operational in the next 30 minutes."

The outage was caused by a malfunction with one of the park’s transformers, knocking out the power in Toontown and Fantasyland around 11 a.m., FOX5 San Diego reports.
