Trams were shut down after the tragedy occurred, and security was heavily surrounding the scene. Those who were trying to get to their vehicle in the Mickey and Friends parking garage were rerouted to get to the structure through the Downtown Disney entrance as well as the Pixar Pals bridge, keeping guests away from the transport plaza and tram area. It is reported that the exact location of the incident was just outside the bathrooms by the Mickey and Friends escalator. The escalators were blocked off, and guests were asked to use the stairs. Elevator use was by special request only, and any guests in the elevator were escorted by security.

At this time, no further information has been released regarding the tragedy.
