"We've discovered that the issue is with a Disneyland Resort transformer and our group is right now surveying and attempting to reestablish control", Disney said in an announcement got by KABC. A representative for the park said they were not aware of any people still stranded on rides. A spokesperson didn't know whether crowd size caused the issue.
