Small Explosion in Back Lot at Downtown Disney

2 Jul

From the Orlando Sentinel:

A Disney security officer on bike patrol called deputies at about 12:30 a.m. he heard a noise and saw white smoke coming from a garbage can in a back lot at of Downtown Disney, said Disney spokeswoman Kim Prunty.

The garbage can is in the far lot behind the Cirque du Soleil theater, going toward the golf course at the Saratoga Springs Resort, Prunty said. There are no attractions or shops in that area.

When deputies arrived, they secured the area and later reported no damage or injuries.

Interesting that it happened in a back lot, nowhere near the areas most of us think of when we think “Downtown Disney.” Also, I’ve gotta wonder if there’s any relationship to earlier reports of a Disney Cast Member facing charges for bragging about placing a pipe bomb at Downtown Disney, which in that case was near Fulton’s Crab House.

Push the Talking Trash Can could not be reached for comment, but I think it’s safe to assume he was unharmed.

    Between the harassments and now explosions at Downtown Disney, I think they should rename the area into Down N’ Out Disney….the urban-themed park where you struggle to survive. They can sell Tinkerbell kevlar vests!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Jon!
    Downtown Disney’s certainly getting a lot of media attention these days! At this moment, the main page on the ;Orlando Sentinel web site is running this story bigger than Bush commuting Scooter Libby’s prison sentence, which one would hope is a more important story.
