In 1999, my family visited Disney Land We happily rode the
'Small World ride. Iwas 12 at the time and my sister was 6.
We loved every moment and our parents smiled with
'nostalgia. At one time near the end, some lights suddenly
'shut off and rear lights illuminated the ceiling. The moving
display parts shut off and crewmembers wearing red
'overalls walked along them to heln passengers in the boats
'onto the stages to direct them out of the building via
'emergency exits.A voice came over the loudspeakers.
"Disney Land thanks you for your visit Please evacuate the
attraction in an orderty fashion. Keep looking forward and
follow the directions of staff. Thank you."
'The staff wouldn't tell us much as they quickly ushered us
ut of the building. Ambutances were outside and a police
carwas parked in the main walkway. Al the time, my mother
Still had her camera out and snapped a few photos of the
crewmen and close-ups of the mechanical children. She
'snapped a few last-minute photos of whatever to use up the
last of the roll of film on the camera, since were we going to
develop them tater that afternoon, anyway. This was the last
Bhoto on the reel aimed al the ceiling of the attraction.
