"Now did ya hear the one about the sunken log?" ;)

They got gift cards, free passes to Animal Kingdom. And I wonder if they got [offered] free clothes cleaning services, too.
But I smell a lawsuit coming on, though thankfully, no one (I read) was injured....just soaked.

what I thought was funny was the people got off themselves and apparently were told by Disney staff that they weren't supposed to get off, what were they to do, go swimming? lol

None of the websites I've looked at have said much more than that the people were told to stay in the boat, but I assumed that the 'stay on board' message was only the usual one they'd play out as part of a breakdown. Maybe the log was caught in a breakdown and queued up with other logs and it began to sink.

I would be surprised if a cast member walked up to the log as it sunk and told the guests to stay on board, but I'm happy to be proved wrong. Most of the articles I found were just eyewitness accounts, terrible videos or hyperbole.
