    How awful for the family. I do think those moving corridors are pretty dangerous, my mum falls over on them ALL the time, its a shame they've no other way of loading.

    Must admit I have always felt these were a bit dangerous, and whilst not wanting to appear a bit 'cold' on all this I am not surprised by this accident - I cracked my knee on the ride last August whilst holding Joshua's hand to ensure his safety.

    Let's hope he is okay anyway.

    I know what you mean, I don't have the best balance and I'm always nervous getting on and off those walkways. I hope the gentleman recovers quickly, hopefully it was just a minor fall and they were being over cautious taking him to hospital.

    I won't go on the big roller coasters as I don't feel safe on them - it's amazing though how many accidents actually happen on the rides that I do perceive as being safe!

    I agree Beth, the sentinel always seems to trot out these stories like its inferring WDW is such a dangerous place. They seem to forget that on most days of the year WDW is populated by more people than in many cities and these accidents are very few and far between
