Original Post: No Injuries have been reported. Reports have emerged on social media regarding a potential fire in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom.

It looks like a potential fire is coming from either the Lunching Pad or the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover (TTAPM) ramp, causing smoke to “billow down the ramp”.

Social media reports have also suggested Fire Rescue is on the scene, with three (3) fire trucks rushing by near the entrance of the Magic Kingdom.

Firefighters are currently at the site of the fire, 15 people were spotted going up the moving ramp leading up into the TTAPM loading area -Firefighters to be presumed.  

Both Astro Orbiter and TTAPM are temporarily closed. Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin and Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor remain open, according to the My Disney Experience app.
