Disneyland On Lockdown

The Happiest Place on Earth is in lockdown:
A bomb squad is investigating and all entrances and exits have been sealed at Disneyland after park employees discovered a suspicious object there Saturday morning.

The employees spotted the object about 7:00 a.m. during a routine walk-through held prior to the opening of the park. The object -- which has not been described -- was spotted in a tree near the park entrance, police officials said.

A group of guests were let inside the park early, before the discovery of the object, but they are being sequestered in a safe area away from the entrance, police officials said.

All entrances and exits have since been sealed and no one will be allowed in or out of the park until the bomb squad investigation is concluded.
If the object smiles and disappears it's just the Cheshire Cat.

UPDATE:  It was nothing:
Guests streamed into Disneyland after the Orange County Bomb Squad determined that a suspicious object left in a tree outside the park entrance was harmless, Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn said.

After catching wind of the situation through media reports, a man contacted police officials explaining that the object was a "goodwill spiritual message for guests," written on a rolled up piece of paper, Dunn said.
