Alice in Wonderland Shutdown

Disneyland’s Alice in Wonderland attraction remains closed for a fourth day, after the ride was suddenly locked down Friday July 16 for an unscheduled refurbishment. Ride operators turning away riders informed guests that the ride was undergoing regular maintenance, yet a group of suits from Team Disney Anaheim was spotted that afternoon walking the track.
Privately, one cast member says Disneyland was “ordered” to shut down the ride: “The length of track that runs outside from the upper level to the ground, known as ‘The Vine’ was the reason. That part of the track has no safety railings. Many of us find it odd, (since) this attraction has been running (safely) for over 50 years. As far as I know, no one has fallen off The Vine. No one knows how long Alice will be shut down.”
He had heard DOSH was to blame, but a spokesperson for the agency said they were uninvolved with and unaware of the closure. I wonder if this isn’t the work of that crack legal team in Burbank. Hopefully, Alice’s wonderful exterior won’t be disfigured with safety railings and bright yellow tape.
