Storms affecting Walt Disney World
In September, Walt Disney World was greatly affected by Hurricane Ian. Walt Disney World closed for two days as Hurricane Ian made its course toward the Walt Disney World Resort. There was a phased reopening for the Disney Parks and some attractions had delayed reopenings due to possible complications from the storm.
Hurricane season extends through November, and we were hopeful that the turbulent weather was behind us. Last Friday, we shared that a new Tropical Storm was forming. Let’s check out the newest update for Tropical Storm Nicole.
We shared that Subtropical Storm Nicole is set to bring heavy wind and rains to Florida this week. You can read more about this update HERE. Today, mid-day the National Weather Service issued a Tropical Storm Watch for Orange and Osceola Counties. Now as the storm continues to strengthen a new update is now issued.
Last night, a State of Emergency was issued affecting Walt Disney World. This morning park reservations are halted for the upcoming days. Now, Disney is beginning to make cancellations.
Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Copper Creek Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, and the Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort will be closed Wednesday, November 9th through Friday, November 11th.
Disney is contacting guests affected by these cancellations. Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is canceled for these dates as well. Guests that have pre-paid for this dining experience will be refunded.
