The parks are closing for your safety and for the safety of the Cast Members.  Please be polite to the Ride Out teams at the resorts.  They will be following the directions of management and will do the best to accomodate you.

Use your snack credits NOW to stock up on edibles and water for the 2 days the parks are closed.  You’ll see very long lines for any potential food items once all guests are required to return to resorts.  Some folks purchase pizzas in advance.  Be sure you have any necessary presciption medications.  Charge your phones and backup battery devices in the event of a power outage.  Try to use it sparingly and turn off all uncessary applications to save battery.
