(KGTV) - When Disneyland experienced a power outage Wednesday, angry guests expressed their outrage on social media.
The day, traditionally one of the busiest of the year for the Anaheim park, started with a positive tweet from Disneyland's official in-park feed.
Why not relax and join us for a vacation to a galaxy far, far away. What's the worst that could happen? Park Hours: Disneyland 8am-12am & Disney California Adventure 8am-11pm pic.twitter.com/hjf1dVoVX0

The situation became more tense as power was knocked out to rides in some parts of the park.

Got stuck for 30m w/ 3 small kids on “it’s a small world” at @disneyland when the power went out. Backup generator turned on, letting one speaker turn on. Darn song is really stuck and kids can’t stop singing it.

Disney turned away guests with passes who had not already entered the park.

A momentary power “dip”, thank Disneyland. Nearing the two hour mark of the power outage at @Disneyland . How are you going to fix this Disneyland? You have thousands of visitors from all over the world! Extend the hours of operation at the very least!
