LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) – Saturday firefighters responded to help Walt Disney World park-goers who had been stuck aboard the Florida resort’s newly launched aerial cable car system.
News outlets report that Disney Skyliner cable cars became stuck in the air. A Disney spokeswoman tells the Orlando Sentinel that there were no reported injuries.
Passengers reported on social media that they had been stuck on the enclosed cable cars for more than an hour. It was not immediately clear what caused the incident.
The Skyliner air gondolas opened to visitors last week. The cable cars whisk visitors from hotels to theme parks three stories above the ground while going 11 mph (18 kph). No more than 10 people are allowed in each cable car.
