How can Disney World Guests Prepare?
If you have plans to travel to Walt Disney World soon, be prepared! Strong winds and rain are likely. Be sure to pack ponchos, an extra pair of shoes, raincoats and umbrellas!
Walt Disney World takes tropical storms and hurricanes seriously and proper precautions will be taken if it should develop into a hurricane.
Park closures are rare due to weather, but they have happened before, but only a number of times. The Disney Parks closed in 2017 because of the threat of Hurricane Irma.
We will keep an eye on any major developments with the storm and will have any updates here. Until then, be prepared for wet weather and be prepared to have your plans changed during the day.
Sometimes certain cavalcades and characters might not be out due to the weather, but you might just be able to catch the Rainy Day Cavalcade if the conditions are not serious.
