Fish Tank Explodes at T-Rex Cafe at Downtown Disney

T-Rex Cafe in Downtown Disney

Earlier tonight during dinner, the aquarium at the T-Rex Cafe in Downtown Disney burst open.

The round aquarium centerpiece is surrounded by tables, which had to be cleared quickly when water suddenly came pouring out.

Witnesses say restaurant employees were very efficient at handling the catastrophe, and several even climbed inside the tank, attempting to save some of the fish. Thankfully, no one was injured.

No word on when the aquarium will be repaired, but officials say the restaurant will be open for business as usual.

Here is a short video somebody shot of the incident:
