A 22-year-old Disneyland cast member has been arrested in connection with the detonation of a "dry ice bomb".

Long Beach resident Christian Barnes, who worked in outdoor vending, was booked on suspicion of possession of a destructive device and is being held in lieu of bail of $1 million.

Multiple sources are reporting that Toontown was evacuated this evening after a report of an explosion that appears to have involved dry ice.

No injuries were reported in the blast which was reported at 5:30pm.

Authorities said the dry ice appeared to have been placed in a plastic bottle and dropped in a trash can, however the Orange County Sheriff's Department's bomb squad will be investigating.

No other details were available.
