An earthquake near Los Angeles was felt at the Disneyland Resort on Friday, March 28 during the Fantasmic! show, right after The Sailing Ship Columbia had fired its cannon. The show was stopped and cancelled, but the second showing went on as scheduled. The evening fireworks show was cancelled. All the rides were temporarily closed, but several reopened by 10:45pm.

Disneyland guests began posting about the experience on social media. Some of the posts mentioned that guests weren't allowed in the parks for a period of time and that the park began clearing out after the earthquake was felt.

The earthquake was reported as being a 5.1 magnitude and the shaking continued for about 15 seconds. Multiple aftershocks were felt for some time.
