I had the same thing happen to me the other week when I was there. That was the first time I went on it that holiday and then the second time I was just about to get on it when all the cars suddenly stopped and they started playing all of the "Stay in your car" messages. I'm not sure what happened but they had to let people already on the ride out of their cars and they all had to walk down the track to the exits.

wish i had something to say but everytime i go i get stuck in HM and Buzz also splash. Probably because hm and buzz are always moving and they had to stop it to let people on. Splash i always get stuck in a boat jam beside the waterfall and i am always on the right!!

I remember when i was little. My family got stuck on Splash Mountain. I was waiting for my family at the end of the ride. I waited at least an hour. What happened was someone lost a hat and the water didn't stop spraying and my family was the lucky family who was going down the drop when it happened. they got so wet it wasn't even funny....it was halarious!!!!haha. After my family got to the bottom and started going into the singing ship scene they shut the ride down.(this is what caused the long wait)They waited and waited and waited. So finally my brother started singing it's a small world. He stood up in his seet and 1 2 3 It's a Small World after all...you know the rest and in a couple of minutes the ride started. When they finally got to the station they all clapped and we finally left. Now that's a great ride breakdown.
Remember...It all started with a MOUSE!!:mickey:

Awesome story; I would have liked to see it because it's one of my favorite attractions, and I always like to experience a breakdown on my favorites so I can hopefully grab some new bit of trivia.

Igot stuck on Splash Mountain on January 2, 2006. At the big cirlce in the front that goes around and then your about to go up a little hill. We waited for about 10 minutes and then they shut the water off. 5 minutes later Cast Members came around and we got out of the side and when down these stairs to this room full of rusty pipes and walked out through the show boat area. and were led out to the back of the ride. I was so mad I didn't have my camera with me cause they didn't mind people taking pictures. It was so cool!!!!!!!
Another time my 2 cousins and uncle got stuck on Peter Pan and firefighters had to come and get ladders for them to climb down.

Correction second scariest part. I too was riding Haunted Mansion alone when I was fourteen and the car stopped right past little leota where it is pitch black before the exit area and for twenty minutes I had to listen to

wellduring my february visit of this year the WEDway brokedown, and we were stranded for 15 minutes, and we were let off and got fastpasses for anyride, anytime. it was beautiful.best use of 15 minutes in my life.

oh, and later that day we got stuck on haunted Mansion in the attic for 5 minutes, and then the graveyard for 27 minutes(we kept track) and no such luck, probabally because we didnt have to be evacuated off it.

i got stuck on the Tower of Terror once and they have 25 or so infared cameras setup in the ride so they can watch all the time to make sure everyone is "ok". also the back of the rides hold the very complex wireless sensor system so they can know where every elevator is at all times

on my trip to disney last month we experienced a lot of ride breakdowns
on hm we broke down at least 3 different time for a few minutes each
on buzz lightyear we broke down for 20 min. right before the exit so we couldn't shoot anything either then we moved 3inches and stopped again
on spaceship earth we boke down twice
and on its a small world we stopped right at the end part with "the" song
also on a few rides we had to wait forever to get off

Test Track is, by far, the worst breakdown I've ever had. We broke down three times in one ride. Once in the heat-test room (about four minutes), once in the acid-test (?) room (about five minutes), and out on the track, as far from the entrance as you can get. I'm not sure I'll ever ride that particular attraction again.

I remember being stuck on Pirates last year. The boats bumped into each other and we were stuck for a few minutes. Proboly liek, 5 to ten minutes top. Right under the hairy leg I sat there thinking "What? We couldn't have gotten stuck by the Red head?"

I got stuck on a lot of rides last year, it was kind of funny, but a secret that isn't really too much of a secret is that on Splash Mountain, where the vultures are, when the lights come on, there is what looks like a door to the right of your log boat thingie. It is probably a control panel place.
