Off With Their Heads! Social Media Images Show 2 Decapitated Disney Parks Animatronics


Yesterday was quite eventful for Disney park goers at Disneyland California and Disneyland Paris. If the images are to be believed, in each park one animatronic became accidentally decapitated and the images went straight to social media.

The Huffington Post posted an article featuring both incidences.

First, at Disneyland California, Urusla herself became the “poor unfortunate soul” as her head fell off during the ride.

Which let to this shared Twitter post:


The Huffington post said the original poster didn’t want to be named but offered this quote:

““Immediately after we got off we were ushered out along with everyone else, and the employees looked very concerned,” she wrote. “Many people had seen Ursula decapitated, including kids who understandably were upset. It was a pretty freaky thing to see.”

But Ursula wasn’t the only one with issues.  At Disneyland Paris, one of the pirates were also decapitated. All jokes about the French pirate being beheaded aside, it looks pretty freaky.  But not nearly as creepy as Ursula.

Second Incident Yesterday

The poster went on to say:

“The fascinating thing was… the facial movements of the Auctioneer were still full working until they shut the whole figure off”

Some people were saying that Ursula’s face was still moving as well. That I can’t verify.

I mean, people were worried about historical accuracy of the updated auction scene but this is going a bit too far.

All joking aside. I’m sure it was scary for some guests. Ursula is especially scary for small children due to her size.  So it had to be disconcerting for some. But I’m sure it’s happened before, but with social media it’s harder to hide. I’m also sure that Disney took care of it immediately.

It’s just really something you don’t expect to see.
