Two Separate Injuries on Pirates at the MK. Keep your hands in the boats!

July 22, 2014


When a Disney Cast Member tells you to keep your arms, hand, legs etc… inside a Disney attraction, it’s really best to listen! A couple of weeks ago, there was an incident on Pirates of the Caribbean at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, where a tourist lost two finger tips. The ride closed for the afternoon, matters were taken care of, and the ride was reopened that evening. But, that accident wasn’t the only one.

According to reports, a 12-year-old boy suffered cuts to four fingers on Walt Disney World’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride, three months before a British tourist had a similar accident.

The report made public Monday by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services shows the boy lacerated his fingers in mid-April. No other details were released.

Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler says, as a precaution, guests at this time aren’t being loaded in the back row where the two people were when they were injured. She says the ride has been inspected and is deemed safe.

So please, for the safety of yourself and your family, be sure to follow the instructions that the Cast Members tell you. Accidents can be avoided!

  1. I really hope they don’t have to dumb down the rides for those who refuse to listen, force their kids to listen, to safety instructions. They really are there for your protection. I hate governing by the lowest common denominator!
