Disney World wasn't a dream come true for 15 guests today. Instead, it led to a trip to a hospital.

Two buses transporting guests collided at Walt Disney World on Tuesday morning. The incident occurred at the Epcot auto plaza around 10 a.m., a representative for Disney confirmed to PEOPLE.

After the collision, fifteen park goers were transported to a local hospital. They are being treated for minor injuries.

The Florida Highway Patrol confirmed that there were 51 people on board the bus when one Disney bus rear ended another.

One Twitter user, @hastin, shared two photos of the buses and observed, “the 2 right hand entry lanes we’re closed, there was 2 Reedy Creek FD trucks on site, several police cars, and 2 ambulances and several Disney Transport vans,” noting he “was shocked that we saw the broken glass.”

Lauren Seabrook, a reporter for WFTV tweeted, “Mutual Aid has been called in from Orange & Osceola Counties.”

In a statement to PEOPLE, the rep for Disney said, “Nothing is more important than the safety of our guests and Cast Members and we are currently focused on the well-being of those involved in the situation.”

Please pray for the swift recovery of everyone who was injured in the crash. Hopefully, they will get to enjoy Disney another day.
