    Disney is pretty tight-lipped about this kind of thing. It'll be interesting to see what comes of it!

    This made me giggle. I mean, it's horrible for the man and his family, but what are the odds of that? I would hide inside my house for days after! Because that must be some bad karma.

    Was it an existing palm tree or a new one that has been braced?

    WOW!! What are the odds! Out of all the things to happen at WDW you get nailed by a palm tree. I hope the guys ok. I thought the Disney garden and tree workers made sure every thing was thriving and rooted in.

    AT first I misread part of the post and thought it said that you saw the tree fall but didn't hear it. As in, if a tree falls in the forest, would it make a sound. But then I read for details and realized you heard it but didn't see it.

    Anyway, I hope the guy is okay and that the tree didn't suffer emotional trauma.
