Orlando International Airport To Resume Flights at 8pm Tonight
It’s been a hairy few days for those at or planning a visit to Walt Disney World. As Tropical Storm Nicole increased in speed to a category 1 hurricane, Disney made the decision yesterday to close the parks early, suspend resort buses and delay park openings for this morning. However, with the worst of the storm over for Floridians, operations are slowly starting to resume.
Our MickeyBloggers are currently at the Magic Kingdom for this evening’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and we’ve also just received word that Orlando International Airport, which cancelled flights due to the harsh winds, will be reopening in just a couple of hours.
You can check out MCO’s official tweet below:

As a result of the weather, Disney World is waiving change and cancellation fees for guests with check in dates from Tuesday 11/8 – Thursday 11/17. Air transportation and other services provided by third parties are subject to the policies of those parties. It is recommended that you reach out to them directly.
