Another Winter Storm Is On Its Way and It Could Affect AirTravel
The Orlando International Airport issued a winter storm reminder on Twitter today for all travelers who plan to fly. After a week of crippling winter weather in parts of the country it is a good idea for anyone to check on their flights.
Flight delays and cancellations continue to occur due to inclement weather across the US. ❄️ Please make sure to check with your airline directly for any updates in regards to your flight. https://t.co/17TMAqsmNw

MCO or Orlando International Airport is the gateway to central Florida, the theme parks (including Walt Disney World), Downtown Orlando and for many Cruisers, Port Canaveral. The airport is the busiest in the state of Florida and on any given day could host almost 800 flights on about 44 different airlines.
Many visitors to Walt Disney World know the path from the gate to the Magical Express. Guests are certainly sad to see this service leave in 2022. Leaving Disney and heading back to Orlando International has been coined by many as the “Tragical Express” because they are leaving their Walt Disney World Vacation.
Winter Storm Viola
Viola is predicted to drop more winter weather on top of some already struggling states and cities. The Weather Channel has issued the following warning:
“Winter storm warnings, winter storm watches and winter weather advisories have been issued from portions of New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma into New England. As of late Tuesday afternoon, over 111 million people in the U.S. were covered by one of those three winter alerts”. (weatherchannel.com)
This will be a problem for airlines including Orlando International.
Snow at Disney World
Real snow at Walt Disney World is rumored to have happened sometime in the history of the park, but evidence is scare. There are cast member stories of snow in 1989, but guests are much more likely to experience snow in the form of Disney magic.
Main Street USA hosts a seasonal snowfall each holiday season. This tradition was suspended in 2020 due to COVID health and safety guidelines, but there is hope it will return.
So, be careful out there as you are traveling this week. Make sure to take the Orlando International Airport’s advice and check those flight for delays and cancellations. We hope to see you soon at Walt Disney World.
