Tropical Storm Elsa Shifts Closer To Central Florida

If you’re headed to Walt Disney World early next week, you’ll want to take note as Elsa continues to head towards Central Florida. We previously shared Tropical Storm Elsa turned into Hurricane Elsa… the first hurricane of the year. With Florida on Elsa’s projected path, we were happy to see she downgraded back to a Tropical Storm. You’ll still want to keep close watch however as Elsa figures out where she is headed and how strong she will be when she makes landfall. And yes, we know all those Disney fans out there appreciate the National Hurricane Center naming the storm Elsa!

As reported by OrlandoSentinel: “Tropical Storm Elsa continues its approach to Florida on Sunday with a projected path that predicts landfall near Tampa late Tuesday or early Wednesday and then slicing across the peninsula from west to east. The 11 a.m. update from the National Hurricane Center places the center of the storm, which was downgraded from a hurricane on Saturday. By late Tuesday or early Wednesday, the storm is predicted to shift northeast making landfall somewhere near Tampa still with 60 mph sustained winds and then progress on a path that could take its center over Ocala on the way to Jacksonville.”

While we hope Tropical Storm Elsa doesn’t rain out your plans to visit Walt Disney World, keep watch as even the National Hurricane Center has noted this is a hard one to track. Stay safe, Disney fans!

About Mike/ Jamie

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.
