You know that moment when you're sitting at your computer screen and suddenly, you see something you've been dreaming about?The one with the guy from The Simpsons walking up to you in a green coat and asking you if you like to play video games?Yeah, you probably did.You know what?I'm actually not sure that's what it was.It was more like a creepy, sweaty, and creepy-looking version of that scene fr...
On the morning of Dec. 6, 2018, the sun was shining brightly and the skies were clear for the annual New Year’s Eve party at the amusement park at Universal Studios Orlando.
It was a great time for Disney Imagineers and their guests, who were on their way to see the first live action Hobbit movie, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
The excitement and anticipation in the crowd was palpable, and as the sun rose, we all felt the magic of the opening moments of the movie.
But before we could begin to enjoy the film, a young boy was hit and killed by a train.
That’s right, a boy in his 20s who had just stepped off the train.
His parents, the parents of two children, were not at home that day.
The boy’s father, who was not injured, died on the way to the hospital, while his mother, who had a serious head injury, succumbed to her injuries on Dec. 19.
The parents of the other two children who survived the crash were treated and released from the hospital a short time later.
But the death of the boy was the most heartbreaking loss.
The Disney Imagineer team worked tirelessly to find the boy’s family and the park authorities, who immediately began investigating.
The accident occurred at the Disney Park in Orlando.
When Disney officials learned that the boy had died, they immediately began the most thorough investigation in the history of Universal Studios and the Disney Imagineering Group.
In addition to the Disney employees who were there for the celebration, the family members of the victims were also present at the scene.
The family was brought in by the local police department.
After a long and complex investigation, the Disney team came to the conclusion that the accident occurred on Disney property and was not related to the events that occurred at Universal.
The cause of the accident was determined to be an on-rail collision that occurred in the middle of the night.
The park is an iconic destination, so there was a lot of anticipation around what would happen after the accident, and the investigation began with the Disney Police Department, who began an extensive search of the park.
They searched all of the rides, the areas surrounding the rides and the surrounding area.
They went through the park, and they went through every vehicle.
The investigation was a complete, thorough, and thorough process.
The results of the investigation were received by the families and were given to the families by Disney.
The families of the two deceased victims were notified and offered assistance.
The Orlando Police Department was also contacted and offered to assist.
Disney, the Imagineers, and Universal were able to quickly and efficiently determine that the collision occurred on the Disney property.
Disney and Universal have been working to provide support to the victims’ families throughout this time.
Disney has provided counseling, and both families have received emotional support from the Imagineering family, the police department, and local community members.
Disney will provide an update on the investigation once the results are in.
We understand that many of the Disney family members have been in the Orlando area for the holidays and are still grieving.
We are in the process of providing our full support to all of those affected by this tragedy.
Disney is working with local authorities and other agencies to assist the families, and we are also offering additional support to our local community.
In the coming days and weeks, we will be releasing more information as the investigation continues.
The Walt Disney Parks and Resorts team at Universal Orlando will continue to provide a level of comfort and safety to our guests.
As we work to gather the facts and share them with the community, we are confident that the tragedy will be fully understood and the true meaning of the holiday season will be revealed.
