Hurricane Elsa Making Her Way To Florida
What was Tropical Storm Elsa yesterday has gained strength overnight and throughout today to become Hurricane Elsa. The 5-day prediction is still on course to be in the vicinity of Florida on Tuesday or Wednesday.
The National Hurricane Center doesn’t quite know where or if Hurricane Elsa will make landfall in Florida, it’s still too early to know. A lot of movement could be made with movement over Cuba. Tomorrow’s updates will be more telling for its path.
Disney has only closed a few times for hurricanes since 1971. These are as follows:
- 1999- Hurricane Floyd
- 2004- Hurricane Charley
- 2004- Hurricane Frances
- 2004- Hurricane Jeanne
- 2016- Hurricane Matthew
- 2017- Hurricane Irma
- 2019- Hurricane Dorian
That’s not bad in 50 years of the parks being open.
But if you happen to find your vacation being threatened by a hurricane, Disney’s Official Hurricane Policy is as follows:
- If a Hurricane Warning is issued by the National Hurricane Center for the Orlando are OR your place of residence within 7 days of your scheduled arrival date, guests have the option of calling in advance to reschedule your vacation package or room reservations to another date.
- Under these circumstances, cancellation or change fees would not be imposed by Disney.
- Products and services provided by third-party suppliers included in your vacation (like flights and car rentals) are not refundable by Disney. You would need to contact the companies directly to find out what their individual policies are.
