Tropical Storm Elsa Will Start to Effect Disney World Later Today
Tropical Storm Elsa continues to make her way towards Florida at 10mph with winds at 70 mph. Coastal areas of Florida will soon see Hurricane warnings as the storm is expected to become a Category 1 hurricane soon.
So what does this mean for central Florida, and especially Disney World? Some strong winds and heavy rains will be a guarantee. They are expecting anywhere from 2-4″ inches of rain and winds up to 27mph in the Orlando area. As of right now, Orange County and surroundings areas are not under a Tropical Storm warning at this time.
Weather conditions should be returning to normal on Thursday, with the occasional left over rain band moving through the area.
Florida’s hurricane season spans a 6 month period starting in June and running through the end of November. The most active time during the season in August through October. If you ever find yourself in the threat of a hurricane for an upcoming vacation, Disney does have a hurricane policy.
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.

- 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.
