Tropical Storm Headed for Walt Disney World This Week

Weather reports are calling for a huge tropical storm to be targeted to hit Central Floriday, including the Walt Disney World area on Thursday, 9/1. The storm could reach winds as high as 70 mph and send heavy rainfall to the area.  Disney World rarely closes, and would only do so if there was a danger to guests in the area or damage was caused to the parks that needed to be cleaned up before the park could open.  The last time Disney World delayed opening to one of their theme parks was in October 2005 in order to clean up from a massive storm.  We will keep you posted on any damage or issues caused by the storms.


About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
