Eleven of those people visited Disneyland in September, said Orange County health agency spokeswoman Jessica Good.

The disease can be spread through inhaling droplets from contaminated water sources.

Officials reported the victims were infected sometime between August and October, and range between the ages of 52 to 94. While many people have no symptoms, it can cause serious pneumonia and prove risky to those with lung or immune system problems.

Health officials are now inspecting nearby properties and businesses which are not associated with theme park. The OCHCA said the cases were reported and verified by the agency between Sept. 27 and November 15, and the range of exposure dates is most likely late August/early September through late October.
