Disney has additional updates on how the theme park closure will affect guests. Here is how your visit and park tickets will be impacted.
By now you have probably heard that Hurricane Ian is closing down Walt Disney World. News of the closure broke earlier today. We also know that soon it will be impossible to fly into MCO and other airports in the storm’s path.
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.
However, now Disney has even more updates for guests as the storm approaches. This includes news about partially used tickets as well as special events.
Partially Used Tickets
If your Walt Disney World vacation has already started, and you have partially used tickets, as of now, this is what is happening. Partially used multi-day theme park tickets with a usage window impacted by Hurricane Ian-related park closure will automatically be extended to use the remaining entitlements through any date through September 30, 2023.
If this announcement does not address your needs, you can always contact Guest Relations to see whether it is possible that anything else can be done to accommodate your situation.
This likely goes without saying, but Disney’s website has also confirmed that Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is officially canceled for Thursday, Sept. 29, 2022.
Additionally, closures affect Disney Springs. Drawn to Life presented by Cirque du Soleil & Disney will be canceled on Wednesday, Sept. 28 and Thursday Sept 29, 2022.
This likely brings with it disappointment for Guests with special trips planned during this time. If you are impacted, our hearts are with you, and we hope you stay safe during the storms.
