Resort Torts are piling up at Disney. Disney’s Magical Express bus collided with a tractor trailer in Orlando early this morning, injuring five people, including the bus driver. The bus provides transportation to and from the Orlando airport.
The accident follows last week’s reports of two lawsuits filed against Disney: A San Diego, California family whose 4-year-old son was scalded by nacho cheese sauce at Orlando’s Magic Kingdom last March; and a quadriplegic who was left in his wheelchair on a stalled boat of the “It’s a Small World” attraction for about 40 minutes during an evacuation of other park visitors on the ride.
Two months ago, a tragic Disney bus incident involved a 69-year-old tourist, who was hit and killed by a Walt Disney World bus filled with passengers, in the parking lot of Disney’s Port Orleans Resort.
In April, a 9-year-old boy riding his bicycle was pulled under the rear wheels of a Disney bus in the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. He was wearing a safety helmet, riding on the sidewalk. Disney faces a wrongful death lawsuit that points to sidewalk conditions and the park bus system for the death.
