Ten Second Tip: A Misconception About When a Ride Stops

If the ride stops, take a picture! But don’t use your flash…

Often a ride such as Haunted Mansion or Spaceship Earth that is on a continual track will stop for a minute or so. Many people think that it is a technical problem with the ride. More likely, it’s someone transferring from a wheelchair or a scooter to the ride vehicle. When someone needs to transfer, the track cannot be moving for safety reasons. When this happens, just sit back, or take a couple of pictures (without the flash, of course). The ride will usually start again shortly.
