Power Outage Affects Most of a Disney World Resort

Power outages are no joke! They can be stressful when dealing with them on vacation. This power outage is greatly affecting Guests.

Just like at home, power outages can occur at the Most Magical Place on Earth. They can shut down attractions, evacuate buildings, and cause chaos for entire resorts.

In the event of a power outage, it’s important to listen to Cast Member instructions and follow them closely. It can be a scary instance when you are on an attraction and the power goes out. I (Monica) have experienced this while waiting to board Indiana Jones Adventure at Disneyland!

Whether it’s all the Christmas decor, the influx in Guests celebrating this time of year, or a mechanical/technical issue, Disney’s Fort Wilderness is experiencing a power outage at the moment.

From what we can see on social media, the power outage is affecting Guests staying at the campsites. According to Cast Members, the cabins are NOT affected. But, we are unsure if the power outage is affecting restaurants and resort activities.

This time of year draws in a lot more Guests to The Fort. They host many great Halloween activities like the golf cart parade. And, campers love to set up all their decorations for “looping”.

If you are camping at Fort Wilderness, you need to be prepared in case the power goes out. It’s important to have a generator or some other energy source to use when this occurs.

Many Guests leave their pets in their campers while at the parks, so some kind of alert may also be necessary in these circumstances. We hope power is fully restored soon.
