Sad News from the Heart of Disneyland: Cast Member Passes Away After Golf Cart Accident

A poignant reminder of the fragility of life has touched Disney’s world of magic. In a deeply tragic event, a 60-year-old Disneyland Resort employee lost her life following a terrible accident occurring backstage in Anaheim, California. Responding swiftly to a distress call at approximately 11:30 a.m. on a recent Wednesday, police and fire officials discovered that Bonnye Mavis Lear, a devoted Cast Member of Disneyland’s exclusive Club 33, had fallen from a moving golf cart and sustained fatal injuries.

According to a CBS News report, it all began when Lear, seated in the rear-facing seat of the cart alongside three others, reached for the handrail after the vehicle hit a bump. Alarmingly, the handrail gave way, leading to her unfortunate fall and head injury. Despite being immediately rushed to a nearby hospital in grave condition, she succumbed to her injuries two days later, leaving the Disney community heartbroken.

In a heartfelt statement, Disneyland Resort president Ken Potrock voiced the sorrow shared by all: “We are heartbroken by the loss of Bonnye and offer our sincere condolences to everyone who cared for her. At this time, we are focused on supporting her family and our cast members through this tragic event and making sure they have the resources they need.”

Anaheim Police Traffic Detectives are diligently investigating the incident, seeking clarity and answers for the grieving community. As we reflect on this devastating event, it’s a touching reminder of the communal bond shared within Disneyland’s massive family of cast members and guests alike.
