Default Disney Gives a Guy $8,000 for Getting Stuck for 30 Minutes on “It’s a Small World”



DM – A disabled man was awarded $8,000 by Disneyland after the "It’s A Small World" ride broke, stranding him for 30 minutes while the theme song played on a loop.

Lawyer David Geffen says Jose Martinez was the only passenger not rescued when the ride broke down in 2009, and staffers failed to call the fire department to free him. Martinez uses a wheelchair, suffers from panic attacks and high blood pressure, and needed to urinate for much of the time he was stranded on the popular ride in the Fantasyland area of the amusement park.

Geffen says half the award ordered Friday is for pain and suffering, and the other half for disability law violations. The man’s chronic health conditions became an issue as he sat stranded in the boat with the ‘Small World’ tune playing over and over again, according to the attorney. ‘He was half in the cave of the ride and half out,’ Geffen said. ‘The music was blaring. They couldn’t get it to go off.’

In all fairness, it prob felt like he was stranded for days with that music playing...

$8000 is not nearly enough imo. That's just cruel and unusual punishment lol

To be fair, anytime someone gets on that ride should be awarded $8,000.

ridiculous...frivilous law suit. What are the actual damages suffered by this man? He had to pee...why not sue his physician for most likely having him on a diuretic for his high blood pressure while they are at it. The rationale in the judgement is ridiculous as well, why am I not suprised this was in California?

That ride is a classic. My kids love it and I actually enjoy it too. Since the boats are free flowing, not sure how he got stuck other than the rides were backed up on the unloading dock and they could not get them to move.

I used to be a ride operator at Six Flags over Ga and we had issues every now and then with breakdowns and such, but not 8 hours worth

That's a terrible situation to be in. I bet his blood pressure was sky high after he got safely off that ride.
