If you've ever gone on the Small World ride at Disneyland, you know you're thinking that someone owes you money as soon as you get half way through it, even if the ride is working normally! LOLz!
Now, realize that a disabled man got stuck on the ride… and had to listen to that song over and over for a half hour!
The thing is, they evacuated everyone BUT him! Here's what his attorney said:
"They started evacuating other guests and weren't evacuating him. They said they couldn't move him out of the cave…. They didn't summon the Fire Department right way."
Well, the court has now awarded hims $8,000 — $4k for pain and suffering, and $4k for access violations. Disney, of course, disagrees with the ruling (even though eight thousand dollars is about 10 minutes during any given day to them):
"Disneyland Resort believes it provided all appropriate assistance … and is disappointed that the court did not fully agree."
There wouldn't be a lawsuit if that was the case!
We're glad he got SOMETHING out of it, even if the song might still be stuck in his head! LOLz!
