Disneyland was not the Happiest Place on Earth today. An areaÂ of the 510 acreÂ theme park called TomorrowlandÂ was evacuated because of a suspicious bag that ended up containing food. No bomb or explosives.Â
KABC-TV in Los Angeles (owned, coincidentally, by Disney) is reporting thatÂ an abandonedÂ backpack prompted the evacuationÂ at DisneylandÂ in Anaheim, California.Â A spokesperson for Disneyland told KABC an unattended bag was discovered near the Tomorrowland theater at about 4 p.m. PDT.
The rest of Disneyland remains open until its regular closing time of 8 p.m., park spokeswoman Suzi Brown told the L.A. Times. “Our guests are enjoying the rest of the park,” she said.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department Bomb Squad was called to the scene to investigate. BrownÂ says the bag is not suspicious looking, just that it was merely left unattended. Disneyland has now received the all-clear.
