Power restored at Disneyland after outage disrupts attractions
Power has now been restored at Disneyland after an outage disrupted various attractions during the busy holiday season.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- A major power outage affected attractions in parts of Disneyland in Anaheim Wednesday, a busy time for the park during the holiday season.

A Disneyland spokesperson said power went down in Toontown and Fantasyland, and crews were working to restore it.

By 4 p.m., the park said the power had been fully restored to all areas of the resort and the park would be fully operational within 30 minutes as attractions were brought back online.

When the outage first hit, guests were escorted off "about a dozen" rides, including the popular Monorail, during the outage.

A park spokesperson said the outage stemmed from a transformer problem.

"We've determined that the issue is with a Disneyland Resort transformer and our team is currently assessing and working to restore power," the statement read.
