On the eve of the official start of Florida’s hurricane season beginning June 1 and running through November 30, we’re seeing that the 2022 hurricane predictions previously reporting a busy season are likely to be true.

While Florida is no stranger to rain, tropical storms, and hurricanes, when planning your theme park vacation should include time checking on the weather in your daily plans. Flights into Orlando International Airport have been known to be canceled due to heavy storms, along with Park hour adjustments at Central Florida theme parks such as the Disney Resort and Universal Orlando Resort.

The National Hurricane Center has been keeping an eye on the remnants of the Pacific category 2 Hurricane Agatha that hit near Puerto Angel, Mexico with 105 mph winds on Monday (May 30, 2022). According to a report from Orlando Sentinel, the storm now has higher odds of reforming into the first tropical storm in the Atlantic this season with Florida as its target.

After Hurricane Agatha made landfall on Monday it weakened but may reform into a system with the potential of becoming Tropical Storm Alex. Predictions of development show an impact on Florida later this week with still much uncertainty as we watch along with the National Hurricane Center.

Regardless of when you travel to Walt Disney World during this hurricane season, be sure to know which attractions operate in heavy rain at the Disney Parks, as well as how to prepare for a rainy day at Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

About Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
