BREAKING: Fire Reported Near Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom, Emergency Vehicles Respond

Update: As of Wednesday, December 15th, everything is back to normal in Magic Kingdom and Cinderella’s Royal Table is operating as usual. As far as we can tell from the outside, Cinderella Castle isn’t visibly damaged. 

Not every day in Disney World is a walk in the park.

A foggy morning in Magic Kingdom

Sometimes it’s a super foggy morning, or rides close down, or modes of transportation aren’t working, or the Skyliner gondolas crash. Then there are times like today.

As reported by Disney Food Blog, Cinderella’s Royal Table was evacuated tonight and emergency vehicles were dispatched after a fire was reported to Reedy Creek Fire Department. Smoke was reportedly seen under the bridge of Cinderella Castle, according to a video on TikTok from @thepirateadventurer.

As shared by reporter Scott Gustin on Twitter, Disney released a statement on the event. According to Disney, “There was a small fire in Magic Kingdom. The fire was quickly extinguished by fire extinguishers. No one was hurt.”

Gustin updated further that the fire “was put out by a single fire extinguisher.” He went on to update that it happened “in a mulched area near the castle moat.”

UPDATE: According to the Orlando Sentenial, the President of the Reedy Creek Firefighters Association (John Shirey), has shared that “the call initially came into the fire department…as an electrical fire on a junction box outside the castle.” And, when fire personnel first arrived, they “saw a tree on fire next to the structure.”

Additionally, he stated that “fire personnel treated a security guard who inhaled dry chemicals from a fire extinguisher” and a Disney spokesperson also shared that “a cast member was transported from the park for non-emergency treatment.” These were the only reported injuries from the incident.
