I received several reports about an incident at the Grand Californian Hotel today, everything from "the hotel is closed" to "the hotel is on fire!!!!!" After talking to both a Disneyland spokesperson and reader who is on scene, it turns out that the "fire" was simply a smoking pizza oven, and the evacuation ended almost as soon as it began once the cause of the smoke was determined. Our reader on the scene says guests are being allowed into the hotel, and there is a lingering fire response around the Storyteller's Cafe.

Whew! So glad it sounds like everyone is okay and did not turn into something bigger!
