Here’s How Disney “Ruined” The Magic For This Group Of Guests

There’s nothing like Disney and the magic you experience in their parks.

You can really immerse yourself in the magic, and feel like the world is a million miles away.

I have been moved to tears — literally — on several occasions just from the overwhelming magic that you feel at Disney Parks.

I love it.

But, what happens when that Disney magic is ruined? It can be a bit devastating, as these Disney park visitors on TikTok found out firsthand.

They found themselves crying tears, but it wasn’t from some spectacular service or over abundance of Disney magic.

They found themselves crying because the Disney magic was ruined, and I’ve actually been in this exact predicament.

See, they were on the Haunted Mansion ride — one of the magical rides in the park — when their doom buggy broke down.

They happened to be in Madame Leota’s seance room. If you’ve been on the Haunted Mansion, you know the one.

It’s the room where there are floating musical instruments that play when the dead are present, and Madame Leota’s head is in the crystal ball.

Serpents and spiders, tail of a rat, call in the spirits, wherever they’re at! Rap on a table — it’s time to respond. Send us a message from somewhere beyond … Goblins and ghoulies from last Halloween, awaken the spirits with your tambourine!

Madame Leota, The Haunted Mansion

Now, if you don’t want the magic ruined for you, don’t read on. You have been warned.

These poor people were in Madame Leota’s room when the Haunted Mansion ride shut down.

The lights were brought up, and you could see how the Disney magic was accomplished — fishing line that hung the instruments from the ceiling.

How disappointing, right?

Not only that, but they were escorted out of their doom buggies by cast members, and walked out of the ride.

Magic Ruined.

I’ll never see it the same way again #fail #disneyland #hauntedmansion #breakdown #disney #failvideos #crying #dramatic


What do you think? Have you been on a Disney ride when it shut down? Was the magic ruined?
