The Carousel of Progress in Walt Disney World’s Tomorrowland was damaged when a guest went up on stage during the “Turn of the Century” scene at the beginning, and began messing around with the butter churn.  When another guest came up to remove him he laid on the ground.

It is not clear if the person is disabled, drunk, or on drugs, but something was going on here.

There was a video of the scene posted by Big Surgz on Youtube:

No idea what happened to the guests afterwards. But from what I can gather he was removed from the stage.

Images were surfacing of the attraction being run afterwards, with the damage still visible.


But it doesn’t seem like something that couldn’t easily be fixed after the park closed. And it was open again today.

Now. The first thing I thought of when I saw this this attraction is probably NOT the one you want to run up on stage for. The same system was used for America Sings in Disneyland and during the scene rotation, a cast member somehow got pulled between the two walls and was killed.  I am sure they have safety precautions in place for this now, but I don’t think we want to test them with people jumping up onto the stage.

That’s all we know as of right now.

What do you think? Comment and let us know!
