“The Friday evening quake forced the temporary closure of Big Thunder Mountain, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash Mountain, Star Tours and the new Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run at Disneyland. The Incredicoaster, Radiator Springs Racers, Soarin’, Toy Story Midway Mania and Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout were temporarily closed by the Friday quake at Disney California Adventure
Disneyland employees followed an established protocol that calls for the inspection of major attractions after a major earthquake.”

“A 7.1-magnitude earthquake rocked Southern California on Friday night, the United States Geological Survey reported.
In L.A., Dodger Stadium was swaying for 30 seconds — the Dodgers, currently playing a game, never stopped during the shaking — while some Disneyland visitors reported being evacuated from rides like the Millennium Falcon.”
