An unattended bag left in the Tomorrowland area prompted security and police to clear the immediate area this afternoon. Reported around 4 p.m., the bag was found outside the Tomorrowland Theatre where Michael Jackson's Captain E.O. is shown. A sheriff's spokesman told the OC Register that “the circumstances were suspicious enough” to call out the bomb squad. Around 5:30, park-goers were allowed back in the area after the bag was determined to be a "soft-sided ice chest with wheels, containing parishable food items."
