earlier this year we got stuck on Peter Pan and they turned the lights on. My wife and daughter's car was way up high in the room with the island. I was two cars ahead of them, above the Indian chief's daughter. I took video of it. Took about ten minutes before they had the cars moving to get us off the ride. It was neat to see it with the lights on

I got stuck with the kids on Roger Rabbit, right in the room with the shrieking machines and the machine mouth that opens and closes.....we were also the last ones evacuated and OMG that was horrible!!! Another time we broke down on RR but we were not in the same place and we were evacuated first.
Got stuck on RSR the first time we rode it, at the end in the taillight cavern. That was not too bad.
Got stuck on Indy, right after you pass the doors and he tells you to go left, we had a CM come by and ask if we were OK waiting, we all said yes so we waited. They got it going again and then they let us ride again right away.

Nothing that interesting except the hole that Roger uses to save you. lol

We got to walk off Splash Mountain on our last visit. We were right before one of the inside drops, there was a log in front of us that was the one about to go over. We were stopped for a few minutes before some cast members came and helped everyone out of the logs and through the ride. The exit we were taken to was somewhere behind gates, as we were taken down the stairs and back to the public area we were all given fast passes for anytime.

We got stuck on PoC for a long time. They turned the music off after about 20 minutes (before the mutany!) and the lights on. We rode the rest of the way with the lights on. It was great. Thankfully they turned the mucis off. I love the music but not when you are stuck in a boat in one place for 1/2 hour!

I understand that It's a Small World boats used to routinely bottom out, where they'd just stop. Then they'd send a CM to remove people from the ride so they could restart. That eventually prompted a refurbishment where they deepened the flume. Disney claims that it was because they had issues with friction from where the fiberglass hulls had been patched over the years, but that can't really be it. If that were the real problem, they would just get new boat hulls and be done with it - rather than take on the more expensive job of deepening the flume. The supposed real reason was because the visitors were too fat.

Only stuck _on_ the ride a couple of times:

- on California Screamin, the ride stopped with our car about 30 feet from the load/unload zone for about 30 minutes. They eventually got us moved into the unload area so we could get out. Much better than the other cars stuck on the hills, though--they had to climb down the stairs from the track.

- on Splash Mountain, the ride stopped just as we were leaving the loading area. Had to sit there for 20 minutes while they figured out how to get us out of the log since we were just past the loading area, but not into the water yet.

- not really stuck, but we dined at Blue Bayou and were the last ones out. At that point they had turned on the house lights to clean the restaurant. We could see the tracks and all in the first area of PoC. They stopped us from taking photos, though.

I've been stuck on a couple but nothing major.
On youtuvbe there were two very funny videos
one was where they were stuck on pooh in the psychedllic room with no sound, not even the people in the ride were talking, all of the sudden you hear the person behind the camera whisper "It's really quiet"

The second one I can't find anymore but it was from Splash mountain at DW and this family was stuck at what looks like right after the hiil on a level area as you turn a corner. The dad was a comedian he kept on like he was reporting and the Disney people would be coming along soon with their pixie dust to put them all to sleep and have them forget all about what happened then he made fun of their costumes it was really hilarious.

Going to go see if I can find them again.

EDIT: Found the Winnie the Pooh one

really wish I could find the other one it was hilarious

Pirates...it's was right before it went down for awhile for refurb....we were stuck for over 2 hours. we stopped right as we were going into the burning section under the bridge with the pirate guy dangling his leg. They DID NOT turn off the music, just turned it down and turned on the light. They had CM come out in wading pants to push the boats to locations we could disembark. We were towards the end so we were one of the last boats off. We were WAY backstage, walked down by some CM break room and came out over by the bathrooms in NOS. It was pretty wild! LOL we got a front of the line pass but it was about 15m to closing so we just left. i should've asked if we could have one for another day since we had AP but didn't think about that until after. My DD wouldn't ride it for quite awhile after that.

We also got stuck on Indy not to long ago for about 45 mins. We were in the sections with all the skeletons. They had CMs getting people out of the vehicles right away, we just had to wait our turn. We had two people in our car FREAKING out!! LOL this lady was trying to wiggle out and kept saying get us out of here. Haha we ended up having to walk out. We got another front of the line pass for that one too.

I am happy to report that I do not. Last month my paralyzed daughter and I had just been seated on Splash Mountain when the ride went down suddenly. We would've been stranded 30 seconds later, and the fire department would've had to rescue her as I cannot carry 100#.

Actually I do have one to report. Last month we got on the Railroad at Tomorrowland and were placed in the second to last car (the Lily Belle was behind us with some Club 33 members) because of my daughter's wheelchair. When we got to the Main Street Station, they made everyone get off for some unknown reason, and we had to stay there while they figured out what to do with us, as the Main Street Station has no way for wheelchair-bound guests to exit. After maybe 10 minutes they gave us a private train ride to the New Orleans Station (where we had wanted to go in the first place), which makes me wonder why everyone else had to get off at the previous stop.

About 6 years ago we got stuck on splash mountain! It was right after the drop where all the animals are singing that happy song, and the female birds are dancing on the boat (best way I could descripe that scene!). They turned off all the sound, but the animals kept moving. Anyways, we hungout there for awhile and then finally had to walk off. It was pretty funny, the CM was really grumpy and my mom kept taking pictures as we walked off (among other people, atleast half of the boat had their camera's out!) and EVERYTIME someone would take a picture she would literally shout "NO PICTURES" just over and over again. We ended up going out through a hidden door and into the back stage type area that holds all the machines that power the ride and some spare boats! It was really cool to see what goes on behind the magic, and may have been one of my favorite disney experiences. Except the grumpy cast member! C'mon, we missed the fireworks because of this, atleast let us get some pitures out of it!

DD and I have gotten stuck on Mr. Toad, Indy, and Big Thunder. Each time we the ride stopped, we had to wait for a cm to get us, and then we had to walk out.

A friend and I were there and got stuck on HM. That was by far the coolest.

We got stuck in the room with Madame Leota (sp). All the lights came on and we had to walk out. I was disspointed that we had to walk out the way we came because I wanted to go throught he attic and graveyard area, lol.

We were stuck on PoC for about an hour or so. We were on one of two boats that was in a spot where they couldn't get us off. The fire department eventually had to come and rescue one person who couldn't fit up the narrow stairway we were finally evacuated from.

Thankfully they shut the music off (and we all cheered) and the lights came on. We were taken backstage through many hallways and saw a big break room and what appeared to be a lot of food staff working. It did kind of kill the magic for me but I am slowly forgetting it, haha. We were given a fast pass for any ride that day.

I DO!! This last trip, in November, we had checked in for our Fantasmic! dessert seating and had almost an hour until show time, so OK, no line for Pirates, let's ride..I said..wouldn't it be funny if we got stuck...and then..stuck! We were the first boat in the stuck line..maybe 4 or 5 behind us? I dunno. Anyway, we were just entering the room where the guy and donkey are and the yo ho song. So first a canned voice is saying" rough seas ahead" or something..over and over..then a CM voice "Pirates shut down immediately" or close to that..over and over. Meanwhile, my son is saying "Don't worry..still 40 minutes until show".."30 minutes till show" etc". They finally turn off the darn music..applause all around. Then lights come on, a CM appears and says she
is going to get us off..this took awhile as they had to wrangle a bunch of people from different places to escort us. We finally get escorted off to the side, very slowly and carefully as folks had to step over boat seats to reach the exit point. We all walked up a bunch of stairs and ended up on some roof with lots of duct work. We had been telling CMs we has F! tickets and they did try to move thgings along, but while we were on the roof we heard the F! music start We waited on the roof for quite awhile, then we were escorted thorugh lots of areas, behind scenes of F&B alleyways, security cars with lights on and officers waving us on with flashlights, we encountered many CMs along the way I guess blocking doors or something as they were kind of just watching us. My DH told a plaid we walked by that we were missing our F! seating and he then took charge and hustled us out and to the F! check in point where he explained to the CM what happened. They offered us another night (not possible since that was the only night F! was playing while we were there) and then offered us to return at the 10:00 showing. We had three little kids with us, and had been on the train all night the night before, but we jumped at that, did NOT ride anything between the 2 shows, were all awake and happy for the show and have a great story. We also got a bunch of 'anything' (except Mansion and Space) fastpasses that we didn't even use up. We avoided Pirates until the last day and ended our trip with one more..not malfuncioning...ride on it
