Snippet: Disney World Returns Fully Working iPhone 11 to Family After Device Sank to Bottom of Seven Seas Lagoon ☇

Joe Rossignol for MacRumors:

In early October, parents Lisa and Jacob Troyer took their daughter Sophie on a weeklong trip to Disney World to “fulfill a little girl’s dream.” While there, they took in the Florida sun, went on rides, met Halloween-themed Disney characters, and had all of the fun that one could possibly imagine.

One not so fun moment came on the final evening of the trip. After attending Mickey Mouse’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom and waiting for a ferryboat to depart the park, Lisa’s brand new iPhone 11 fell out of her bag and landed right into the Seven Seas Lagoon, a small body of water in front of Magic Kingdom where Disney operates water-based transportation.

Without spoiling too much of the details, the phone was retrieved and works (although outside of the scope of Apple’s official water resistance expectations), and I’m not really sure if the iPhone or the excellent customer service from Walt Disney World is the bigger story here.
