But it seems that Disney World wasn't as magical as it normally was this week...

And several visitors were left stranded in the most peculiar way.

It happened at the Magic Kingdom theme park...

And it involved the Jungle Cruise boat ride.

The boats slowly started filling up with water with passengers still on board.

Matthew Vince, who was onboard one of the boats, said that more than a foot of water flooded the boat...

Speaking to CNN, he explained how the boat "went from floating to sunk in about a minute."

But thankfully...

Nobody was hurt and all passengers were eventually rescued from the half-sunken boats.

As a precaution, the fire service attended the scene...

Firefighters with the Reedy Creek Fire Department responded to the scene, but no one was transported to the hospital, a spokeswoman with the department also told CNN.

This isn't exactly what one would expect from Disney World...

A spokesperson for Disney confirmed to CNN affiliate WFTV that the boat took on some water, but added that everyone was able to get off the boat safely.

Of course, with the boat ride being a popular attraction since it opened in the 70s...

It got Twitter talking.

Many felt that the whole thing was a stunt...

Dwayne Johnson is set to star in the upcoming Disney movie, Jungle Cruise, and many felt it was a pretty obvious marketing tactic.

Showing that no real danger was posed, and Disney made sure the guests affected thoroughly enjoyed the rest of their visit.

Thank goodness for that!
