Suit charges slow evacuation of broken Disneyland ride

by Walter Olson on February 12, 2011

A quadriplegic man says Disney took 40 minutes to evacuate him from a stalled ride at its California theme park, prompting dangerous high blood pressure, and that had it followed Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards it would have gotten his wheelchair out more quickly. The pain and suffering were exacerbated, the plaintiff says, by “the continuous, ‘small world’ music in the background.” [Orange County Register]

The statement that “The pain and suffering were exacerbated, the suit says, by “the continuous, ’small world’ music in the background.”” does not seem to be in the article. Might be in some other source.

But I believe it.

Check paragraph 9. The newspaper attributes the statement to the plaintiff himself as distinct from the language of his suit, so I’ve corrected the word “suit.”

I have life long pain and suffering from hearing “Its a small world” for 5 minutes on that ride.
