Merida’s Horse Gets Spooked and Freaks Out By Ballon During Cavalcade at Disney World on Reopening Day

The world is gradually reopening after the coronavirus lockdown which affected every facet of our lives. Disney World is making history as they welcomed back their guests beginning Saturday, July 11, at the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom and will welcome Guests back on July 15 at EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

However, something unfortunate happened during the reopening day at Magic Kingdom, Merida’s horse, who Merida rides during the Disney Princess cavalcade which happens periodically throughout the day, got spooked and freaked out by a balloon and had to be escorted off of Main Street USA.

According to the YouTube video, Merida’s horse was spooked by a balloon a child was holding and accidentally let go of, which then got wrapped up in the horse’s feet, and was then walked off of backstage by cast members.

According to the video, it looks as though everyone is okay and safe after this unfortunate incident and Inside the Magic will continue to update you as we get more information.
