It seems that Disneyland got a bit of excitement a couple of days ago when a child seemingly exited a ride vehicle during a ride interruption on Splash Mountain.
According to @Magicallytanna on Tik Tok, while riding the popular attraction the boats stopped for about 15 minutes and then a child got out of one of the boats and stood along the wall.
Here is the first version posted:

Due to the requests she later posted an original audio version:

If you are used to the Walt Disney World ride vehicles you might wonder how that could happen as people sit side by side and someone would be sitting with the child. Disneyland’s version of Splash Mountain is done in a toboggan style, like Walt Disney World’s Space Mountain, so only one person is in the seat in each row.
@magicallytanna did post a follow up video explaining what happened.

Apparently there was a ride interruption for about 15 minutes, at which time the child exited the ride vehicle. The poster also indicated that the child’s parents were seated in a ride vehicle behind her and not with the child in the video, and it seemed he was seated with other children. The parents apparently kept yelling at the child to get back in the boat.
Finally the child complied and they waited another 10-15 minutes or so before the ride was evacuated and they were walked backstage and exited off the attraction. It doesn’t seem that the boy’s actions caused the evacuation, but I’m surprised no one made an announcement or came to get the boy prior to the evacuation.
The poster also indicated that she was surprised that no one said anything to the family and the parents did not grab their child during the evacuation.
At least he wasn’t going after a cucumber.
