Disneyland was affected by a power outage that has left passengers stranded on rides.

A spokesperson for the Anaheim, California, park said that power is down in Fantasyland and Toontown, ABC7 reported. Crews are working to restore it.

They added that passengers are being escorted off “about a dozen” rides, the report stated.

The outage was caused by a transformer problem, a spokesperson told the ABC affiliate.

“We’ve determined that the issue is with a Disneyland Resort transformer and our team is currently assessing and working to restore power,” a statement from Disney said.

Geoff Feinberg told CNN that he and his family were on the “It’s a Small World” ride when the power went off.

“We sat there for about 25 minutes in the dark,” he was quoted as saying by the New York Daily News. “Everyone was calm. No danger. You’re just sort of sitting in a boat. No commotion or anything. It was all very calm.”

Disneyland officials didn’t say when power would come back.
