Wow! What was the reasons for his death? This was quite a landmark case that Disney probably would like to forget!

Nobody wants to remember a little boy getting hurt at the happiest place on earth, and it's a sad thing that he passed at such a young age. I'm sure the theme park industry (including Disney) learned a lesson from this tragedy -- guest safety is Paramount (no pun intended) and having a great legacy is no immunization from the consequences of poor ride design. Still, it's a testament to the thousands of unrecognized park maintenance workers and ride operators that incidents like this are very rare. My condolences to the family and those who were close to the young lad.

Yet more proof, if any was needed, that budget cuts at theme parks are idiotic and can only hurt a company. Penny wise, pound foolish. I hope Pressler et al are proud of themselves...
