Black Bear In Tree At WDW Closes Parts Of The Magic Kingdom

Bear in Walt Disney World

Sightings of a black bear at Walt Disney World caused parts of the “Happiest Place on Earth” to close today. 

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said it was aware of a black bear reported to be in a tree at Magic Kingdom. 

According to The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, “In most cases, it is best for bears to be given space and to move along on their own, but given the situation, staff are working on capturing and relocating the bear”.

“The bear was likely in search of food ahead of the winter hibernation season”, the FFWCC said.

The My Disney Experience app showed long wait times Monday afternoon amid the bear sighting.
