Disney World is no stranger to preparing for tropical storms and closing its doors due to hurricanes. Last year, we watched as Disney World prepared for Tropical Storm Elsa by offering Hurricane Meal Kits to Disney Resort guests.

In recent years, Hurricane Matthew, Irma, and Dorian have had impacts on Disney World’s entertainment. Hurricane Irma even forced Disney World to close from September 9th to 11th, 2017.

We have been working hard to provide you updates as Hurricane Ian moves closer to the Florida coastline. Susan provided an update as we found out that Orange county, and the surrounding counties, were placed under a Tropical Cyclone Watch/Warning.

Disney World also began limiting and restricting hotel reservations in preparation for Hurricane Ian. If you were planning to book a reservation during the next few days, you should check out what Donna wrote about Disney World hotel reservations HERE.

If you are a Disney World Resort guest, rest assured that Disney World is one of the safest places to be during a hurricane. We advise you to remain in the premises of your hotel room and be adaptable to the changes your resort might make. The front desk should have the most up-to-date information to share with you as the hurricane passes.

  1. My family and I were confined to the Wilderness Lodge years ago during a Hurricane. We were really sad and disappointed to miss going to the parks and special stuff I had planned ( like a boat ride and having my kids made up as pirates) but Disney did a great job keeping us safe, fed and entertained. We had a special visit by some of the bears from the bear jamboree. We had games available like Jenga, we had great food at the resort. We also had free video rentals. Obviously Disney can’t help the weather and we were disappointed but we still had fun and appreciated the lengths the cast members went to trying to keep everyone happy.
