According to reports on the DISboards, a 4.1 earthquake was felt 8 miles from Anaheim, California shortly after 1:00 this afternoon. The rides at the Disneyland Resort were shut down briefly, but after safety testing, were then opened back up. At 2:00, a visitor at the theme park posted that they "felt the quake at Ariel's just a few bumps no shaking." This thread was started right before that, noting that the kitchen at Ariel's Grotto was unable to serve food, but no other information was being given. Reports say that they saw lots of ice being taken into the kitchen and a "Do Not Enter" sign was placed on the kitchen door. Guests with reservations are being given the option to rebook. Earthquakes are not an uncommon experience in Southern California, but still not the way one hopes to spend their Disneyland vacation.
