Disney World Resort Guests Will Shelter in Place During Ian!
Good morning MickeyBlog! Our Orlando MickeyBlog team is bracing for the impacts of Hurricane Ian and plenty of vacationing Disney guests are doing the same, especially those staying on property. Earlier today, Walt Disney World announced that all resort guests will shelter in place during Ian!
The following statement was released late yesterday on Disney’s Weather Updates and Information Page:
“For the safety of our Guests and Cast Members, all Guests including our Disney Vacation Club Members must check in to our resorts on Sept. 28, by 3 p.m..Guests that are checked in by 3 p.m. Wednesday will be asked to shelter in place at their resort for the duration of the storm.”
This information follows a series of closure announcements for the Resorts, Disney Springs, the theme parks, and entertainment offerings.
Orlando International Airport is operating Wednesday morning but will stop commercial flights by 10:30 a.m.
Many stranded travelers, vacationers, and locals have opted to stay on property, though all encouraged to enjoy food and beverage options at the parks and Disney Springs before the inclement weather hits later this afternoon.
The following resorts are closed: The Grand Floridian Spa, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Copper Creek Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and the Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort from Wednesday through Friday.
