Walt Disney World Closing Early Today Due to Hurricane Dorian

Hurricane Dorian is playing havoc in the Bahamas and it is now moving away from those islands north west alongside the coast of Florida. Our thoughts are with those families that have lots their loved ones.

Walt Disney World are constantly monitoring the current weather situation and consequently Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom closed earlier today. Epcot and Disney Springs will close at 7pm local time later today. All parks with the exception of Blizzard Beach are expected to open tomorrow with no extra magic morning hours being offered. Disney will update park hours here.

Having just come back from two weeks at Walt Disney World, I can say that over the last few days the weather got worse, and cast members have been making hurricane preparations since before the weekend. The weather caused one of our two flights to be cancelled and although we managed to get home ahead of the hurricane we had to fly west from Tampa to Dallas in order to make the journey home.

We hope everyone is able to stay safe during this difficult time.
