We have a new update for the reopening timeline for the Orlando Airport. Find out the latest updates right here.
Aftermath of Hurricane Ian
Late last week, we began our coverage of Hurricane Ian. It has officially hit Florida and the Orlando area, and Disney World has been taking precautions for the last few days in preparation. First, the parks and Disney Springs were closed yesterday and again today.
Second, new resort reservations are halted until October 3, and Disney is going above and beyond for those Guests riding out the storm on property. Meal kits and special activities are helping Guests feel at ease during the hurricane.
Earlier Walt Disney World issued an official statement in regards to the devastation of Hurricane Ian and later shared that they plan to reopen tomorrow. Walt Disney World Cast Members were called back to work before the official release of park hours for tomorrow, September 30th.
Orlando International Airport
Earlier we shared that the Orlando International Airport continued to suspend normal operations with NO SCHEDULED FLIGHTS today, September 29. All of the roads leading to Orlando International Airport are closed due to flooding.
The hope was that flights would begin once again on Friday, September 30th. We now have official word from Orlando International Airport. They will resume passenger flights after 12:00 pm on September 30th.
Orlando International Airport shared, “Travelers are advised not to arrive at the airport for their departure prior to 10:00 am, so the aiprort and partners can prepare working areas to better serve our customers.”
This is great news for the many passengers hoping to return home and for those passengers looking to visit the Orlando area.
