The picture was first posted to Reddit by user coltsmcGee on Wednesday. It shows John in his chair with his right arm up sans hand. The hand is seen on the floor next to him.

This is the latest instance where an animatronic on the attraction lost a hand. In January, guests posted pictures on Twitter showing the daughter character also missing a hand.

A few years ago, another Disney animatronic made headlines when she lost her head. The Ursula animatronic at Disney California Adventure's The Little Mermaid attraction was captured on video singing while her head dangled from her body.
