Disneyland Paris lockdown: Panic at Disney Village – ‘Everyone is running’

Witnesses have reported panicked evacuations of shops and restaurants on social media, some some referencing “shots fired” and a “man with a rifle”. Some buildings have been evacuated while others are in lockdown. Unverified video footage shared on Twitter shows panicked guests running.

One guest said on Twitter: “Paris Disney on lockdown at the moment shots heard outside, we cannot leave the restaurant.

“Doors locked and armed police have just came inside.

“All we know at the moment is a controlled explosion has been carried out.”

Another said: “It wasn’t the right day to go to Disney village. Confined to a restaurant, military and cops everywhere.

“But hey I will not complain we almost chose a restaurant more ready from where it is hot. In the meantime we wait with the family.”

A third said they were eating in a restaurant when suddenly “everyone was running”.

People are being advised to stay away from the park.

It comes at a time of heightened security in France following a series of terror attacks in recent years. 

This is a developing story, more to follow…
