With the threat of Hurricane Ian, we now see our first set of closures for Walt Disney World. Check out which Walt Disney World Resorts and select park experiences will be affected.
Recently, we began covering Tropical Storm Ian and its potential impact on Disney World. It is expected to intensify into a Major Hurricane (Category 3 or stronger) as it approaches Florida.
Right now, Florida is projected to be hit by Wednesday with hurricane-force winds and heavy rainfall. Disney issued a statement late Saturday night that they are operating under normal conditions. You can read that full statement HERE. Earlier we shared that Fort Wilderness issued a warning to guests with current reservations. Check this out HERE.
