Disney Sued Over Tomorrowland Injury on PeopleMover at Walt Disney World

Jaime Gentile and Jackie Hurley from south Florida have filed a lawsuit against Disney after injuries that occurred while riding the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World in 2015.  The sisters were riding the attraction when two cars collided into each other causing injuries that sent them to the hospital in an ambulance to seek medical attention.  They are being represented by Jeff Delman who claims that Gentile suffered a jaw injury and Hurley suffered injuries to the neck and spine.  Both women required surgery to correct the injuries.  The lawsuit is for an amount that is greater than $15,000.


Currently there has been no public response from Disney on the lawsuit. The PeopleMover is an extremely slow-moving attraction that you wouldn’t typically associate with the possibility of an injury, or with great likelihood that there would be a collision between the vehicles.  As we learn more about the outcome of this lawsuit, we will provide updates here.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
