Deaths at a Disney themepark are really very very rare. They are almost always caused by a guest doing something they weren’t supposed to do (walk on the monorail beam, stand up in the Matterhorn, stay on Tom Sawyer Island overnight, etc) or by a cast member having an accident. So it was with terrible sorrow that Disney experienced the death of one of its parade performers, who was dressed as Pluto, in February 2004. OSHA has now fined Disney $6300.00 for that accident.
Famous Dog killed by float, Disney fined.
