There was a death at Disneyland today, but not on one of the attractions and not in the park.
A man believed to be in his 30s or 40s apparently jumped to his death today from the 14th floor of the Disneyland Hotel’s Wonder Tower. The man has not been identified. He jumped from a balcony in the hotel’s south tower onto a parking lot. Police say it was apparently intentional.
The man was in town on business and was staying in a room with a business associate; the business associate was in the room when the man jumped.
Police were called to investigate a possible suicide shortly after 11 a.m. at 1150 Magic Way. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
As would be expected, Disneyland officials declined to comment on the incident, but at least they said they're working with Anaheim police during the investigation instead of acting like the old days when they'd have Goofy hose down the scene and cart the corpse away in the Haunted Mansion hearse.
