Doubt it. Friends in LA reported feeling it but nothing serious. Too far away.

Yesterday several rides were shut down for a period to check them. The thing I read that was cancelled tonight was a game in Vegas, or so I thought. Thatís quite a distance from DL.

There were reports of ride evacs at Disneyland so they could inspect the tracks. I don't know if they closed all attractions. It happened around 8 pm, I think, so the park would have been busy in anticipation of fireworks and Fantasmic.

I noticed on July 4, after the Earthquake, all track rides were closed, but Falcon, Small World, and non-track attractions were still open. HM closed, but PotC open. Good think nobody's going to DL these days or that would have been a mess on July 4!

Small World did shut down after the 7/4 quake. We were on the ride, at the time, and were surprised on debarking to find no lines loading the boats. We walked off a bit and checked the app to find a good number of rides indicating "Temporarily Closed" and not knowing why. (We hadn't felt the quake as we were on the boats when it happened.)

I read on CNN this morning that they evacuated Space Mountain and walked everyone down.

We were there 10 days ago and "got to" walk off Alice in Wonderland but obviously not due to an earthquake. However, while on POC I commented that I wouldn't want to be on it during an earthquake.
