ANAHEIM, Calif. — A part of Disneyland was briefly evacuated because of a suspicious bag spotted near a ride.

Anaheim police Sgt. Tim Schmidt said Wednesday about 1,000 people were asked to leave Tomorrowland for about 90 minutes because of the unclaimed bag.

Schmidt says a bomb squad determined the bag – described as a rolling ice chest – was harmless and contained food.

The bag was near the Captain EO ride in an area not accessible to the public.

Schmidt says Disney employees are being let back in, and no other areas of the park were affected.
