Visitors were hustled out of Mickey's Toontown at Disneyland yesterday evening after a loud explosion that turned out to be a dry-ice blast in a trash can.

Nobody was injured and Toontown was reopened a couple of hours later after the bomb squad had investigated the scene. (Read more Disneyland stories.)
