The outage has affected attractions inside two sections of Disneyland, Toon Town and Fantasyland, leaving guests stranded.

She said there has been an issue with a transformer, and that teams were working on restoring power.

A major power outage is affecting attractions in parts of Disneyland in Anaheim Wednesday, a busy time for the park during the holiday season. According to multiple media reports, a Disney spokesperson says technicians are working to fix the problem.

"So we lost power to certain areas of Disneyland park earlier today", said Disney spokeswoman Suzi Brown.

Disneyland is nearly at capacity with visitors flooding the park during the holiday week, with many paying "peak" pricing for tickets.

One man asked whether "there any recouping admission considering half the park for our 20 month old is down due to a power outage?"

Yet another upset guest tweeted: "A momentary power 'dip, ' thanks Disneyland".

Power was restored in Toontown and much of Fantasyland within a couple hours and was expected to be fully restored later in the day.

For some children, Disneyland is a magical fantasy kingdom full of spinning teacups, Mickey Mouse-shaped waffles, and animated characters who will hug you.
