Orlando is a city that has to be prepared for almost anything. Last January, they prepared for ice. Yes, you read that correctly. Recently, Hurricane Ian greatly affected Florida. Walt Disney World closed the Parks for two days. New resort reservations were halted until October 3.

Throughout Hurricane Ian, Disney went above and beyond for those Guests riding out the storm on the property. Meal kits and special activities helped Guests feel at ease during the hurricane.

The Orlando International Airport was also affected by Hurricane Ian. No flights were scheduled for several days. All of the roads leading to Orlando International Airport were closed due to flooding. After several days, passenger flights resumed after 12:00 pm on September 30th.

We now see the Orlando International Airport experiencing more flight delays due to inclement weather.
