Disneyland reopens after suspicious object found to be harmless

Disneyland reopened Saturday morning after a suspicious object found at the entrance was determined to be harmless

Disneyland reopened Saturday morning after being on lockdown after a suspicious object discovered at the park's entrance was found to be harmless, officials said.

The unknown object was found shortly after 7 a.m. near a ticket booth at the entrance to the Anaheim theme park, officials said. Park visitors already inside had to remain there, while other visitors had to stay outside the gates as the situation was being investigated.

"The safety of our guests and cast members is our top priority," said Suzi Brown, a spokeswoman for Disneyland Resorts, in an emailed statement. "In an abundance of caution and to allow the security teams the opportunity to learn more, we are keeping guests away from the area at this time."

The Orange County bomb squad and Anaheim police investigated the incident. Brown said that at about 10:30 a.m. the object was determined not to pose a threat, and the park was in the process of reopening.
