Another round of very severe weather is about to hit Florida. Just a few weeks ago, Hurricane Ian hit Florida and left Disney World and other Central Florida attractions scrambling to adjust operations. Tropical Storm Nicole is expected to turn into a hurricane when she makes landfall.

It can be very unsettling to travel to Disney World during a hurricane or storm. Here is a guide to help you plan and prepare for what could occur at Disney during these storms.

Thankfully, Disney World is really great about accommodating travelers! Although they just adjusted park and resort operations for later today and tomorrow, many guests are still visiting and hoping for the best.

Effective immediately, Disney World will not enforce cancellation policies until further notice for dining and other experiences like Savi’s Workshop and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Guests with pre-paid reservations will be cancelled and refunded to the original form of payment. 

Performances of Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground have been cancelled for Wednesday, November 9. Additionally, Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise has been cancelled for Wednesday, November 9.

But, how is Disney handling hotel cancellations? They recently implemented a no-charge cancellation policy, which is great news for people who are hoping to reschedule!

Guests may reschedule their trip or cancel their stay with us; any customary cancellation fees will be waived.

This policy will likely remain in effect for the entirety of the park closure and duration of Tropical Storm Nicole. We will be sure to update when the traditional cancellation policy goes back into effect.
