Small explosion at Disneyland
Disneyland's Toontown reopened Tuesday night after a loud explosion prompted authorities to close it for hours as a precaution.

Sgt. Bob Dunn of the Anaheim Police Department said the loud explosion may have been caused by dry ice in a water bottle. No injuries were reported.

"This afternoon, a small bang was heard in a trash can at Mickey's Toontown (and) in an abundance of caution, we evacuated Toontown to allow local authorities the opportunity to investigate," Disney spokeswoman Suzi Brown said.

The exact time of the explosion wasn't clear, Dunn said.

However, some Twitter users mentioned the incident at about 5:30 p.m.

"Something went BOOM in Toontown at Disneyland and now they're evacuating," wrote @theallenwolf at 5:33 p.m.

Minutes later, @SurelyShawna tweeted: "Was sitting in Toontown at Disneyland and something exploded in the trash can. I felt the sound waves of it and Toontown is closed."

Allen Wolf was writing on his computer near Toontown's City Hall -- about 20 feet away from the explosion -- when he heard a "loud boom."

He said there was no panic among parkgoers (pictured below), but there was a "tenseness."

"It sounded like a gun shot, but it was so out of place because we're in Toontown that most of (us) didn't know what to think," Wolf said. "When no one panicked and there was no indication of what happened," we continued doing what we were doing.

Soon after, police began escorting crowds from the area.

Reports are saying it was caused by dry ice in a bottle.
