LAKE BUENA VISTA (CBSMiami/AP) — A prank phone call led to the evacuation of a section of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Saturday evening.

Orange County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Jane Watrel says the closure and evacuation of Tomorrowland was precautionary.

The closure lasted about two hours. Officials said the areas reopened before the park closed for the night.

Additional information about the call that prompted the evacuation was not immediately available. Watrel says the investigation continues.

A Disney spokeswoman referred questions Sunday about the evacuation to the sheriff’s office.
