According to various reports, an explosion was reported at Disneyland in Anaheim, California on Tuesday, prompting the evacuation of a portion of the park.

The blast occurred in the Mickey’s Toontown section of the theme park, according to CBS Los Angeles.

The Dallas News writes:

Anaheim police spokesman Sgt. Bob Dunn says the blast was reported at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in Disneyland’s Toontown area, which was evacuated as a precaution.

Police are investigating and an Orange County sheriff’s bomb squad was headed to the scene.
Park visitor Allen Wolf says he was about 20 feet from the blast, near Toontown’s City Hall. He said the sound was similar to a gunshot, but louder.

Wolf says the park’s music never stopped playing as security surrounded the trash cans where the bang came from and told visitors they were evacuating.

The Associated Press adds:

“This afternoon, a small bang was heard in a trash can at Mickey’s Toontown,” a Disney spokeswoman said, according to Reuters. “In an abundance of caution, we evacuated Toontown to allow local authorities the opportunity to investigate.”

Wolf also tweeted a picture of people leaving Toontown:

No injuries were reported. No other details were immediately available.
