Another round of very severe weather just hit Florida. A few weeks ago, Hurricane Ian hit Florida and left Disney World and other Central Florida attractions scrambling to adjust operations. Then, two days ago we shared HERE that Tropical Storm Nicole was upgraded to a hurricane.

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.

For travelers headed to Disney World during this time of year, it is important to be prepared and stay aware of weather conditions. This includes packing extra items like battery chargers, medications, and baby supplies. It may also be wise to turn on all weather alerts and keep a close eye on severe weather patterns right before and during your vacation.

Be sure to check out this guide to hurricane preparations at Disney Parks.

The Orlando International Airport ceased operations on Wednesday, November 9 at 4 pm due to Hurricane Nicole. You can read that story HERE.

As travelers scrambled to adjust arrival and departure plans, the airport promised to continue monitoring the situation. The airport was closed Wednesday evening, and all-day Thursday. Although it reopened today with limited operations, travelers looking to depart and arrive in Orlando may be struggling to find available flights.

Due to Hurricane Nichole, Disney World announced on November 9 that it 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. 

Recently we shared that Disney World implemented a no-charge cancellation policy, which is great news for people who are hoping to reschedule! This was originally to be in place while Hurricane Nicole weather affected Disney World. However, it’s been extended through November 17.

Disney World is waiving cancellation fees through November 17.
