Santa’s Sled Malfunctions during Christmas Fantasy Parade at Disneyland

Christmas Fantasy Parade at Disneyland

A scary situation over the weekend for Santa as his sled malfunctioned causing the sleigh to suddenly lurch forward causing him to fall out of his sleigh during  A Christmas Fantasy Parade at Disneyland park on Saturday.

Several videos popped up online of the incident showing exactly what happened. Santa’s sleigh launched forward causing Santa to fall out of his sleigh. He was left dangling off his safety harness until he was safely rescued by parade crew members. Santa being the jolly man he is, completed the parade route on foot.

Thankfully, there were no injuries reported after the incident.

Santa was relocated to the mail room float after the incident. No word from Disney on whether his sleigh float will be reappearing or not.
