This evening Walt Disney World Resort has made some adjustments to the transportation options and nighttime entertainment offerings due to weather concerns.

The announcement first came as a notification via the official Disney World app, My Disney Experience, which warned guests that certain transportation options would be unavailable (including the Disney Skyliner) and some nighttime entertainment would be canceled. This was due to tonight’s high winds. More specific information regarding the cancelations was also posted on the Disney World website.

As always, we recommend staying up-to-date with Disney World operations as best as you can while on vacation. You can do so by enabling push notifications on your cell phone so you can be notified of any changes via the My Disney Experience mobile app. We also recommend contacting Guest Services, the front desk of your resort, or any nearby Cast Member if you have any concerns during your stay.

Even though weather can often affect the operations of Walt Disney World entertainment and transportation, we know your vacation will still be a magical one. Disney’s decisions to cancel or modify entertainment and cease operations of certain transportation are made with the safety of guests and Cast Members in mind.

Also remember that even though the Disney Skyliner (which services guest transportation to and from Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Riviera Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort) and the Sassagoula River Cruise (which services guest transportation to Disney Springs from Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter and Port Orleans Resort – Riverside) are not operating this evening, you can still utilize Disney World bus transportation to get to and from your resort and the theme parks.
