Half Of Disney's Magic Kingdom Shut Down Yesterday Because Of A Bear

While Disney World might already be populated with various members of the bear family, including Winnie The Pooh, Baloo, and the Country Bears, it turns out not all bears are welcome as half of Disney's Magic Kingdom was shut down yesterday because of an actual bear.

The wild bear apparently broke into Magic Kingdom overnight and camped out inside an enclosure on the park's Tom Sawyer Island. This caused almost half of the park's themed areas (Frontierland, Adventureland, and Liberty Square) to shut down including their rides like Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

According to a map from the My Disney Experience app, the closed attractions weren't closed for long, as Disney released a statement saying it was working with the Florida Wildlife Commission to capture and relocate the bear.

You can see footage of the bear being captured below, but you already know ALL the memes have started on the Internet about the incident. Turns out the bear didn't have a park reservation for the park!
