There’s some wild excitement at the Magic Kingdom! This morning, an unexpected guest has caused quite a stir – a bear! That’s right, a bear is hanging out in a tree near Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Frontierland. As a result, almost half of the park is temporarily closed. But don’t worry, dedicated Cast Members are on the case, making sure everyone stays safe.

While the bear takes its time exploring the treetops, some of the beloved attractions are temporarily closed:

  • Big Thunder Mountain
  • Hall of Presidents
  • Haunted Mansion
  • Jungle Cruise
  • Magic Carpets of Aladdin
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Swiss Family Tree House
  • Under the Sea – Journey of The Little Mermaid
  • Walt Disney World Railroad
  • Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room

Keep an eye on the official ‘My Disney Experience’ app for updates on when these attractions will reopen. In the meantime, stay safe and enjoy the rest of the park. Keep your fingers crossed that our furry visitor decides to come down soon!
