Florida weather is notoriously unpredictable with intense heat and humidity, but no one expects to see a full-fledged tornado near or at “The Most Magical Place on Earth.”

But tonight, just beyond the iconic EPCOT sphere, a tornado could be seen mere miles away from the Park. As we mentioned, several warnings were issued for Guests and residents in the area.

In the past few months alone, we have seen the Walt Disney World Resort get completely flooded more than a couple of times.

Summertime at Walt Disney World consists of lots of sun, but it’s also common to see several thunderstorms and random pop-up showers. Sometimes these rain showers can even turn into torrential downpours, which could really change the trajectory of your day at times as select Disney World attractions may close due to the rain.

This is a developing story, we will update our article as more information comes out. 

Walt Disney World Resort boasts four theme parks: Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios Theme Park. It also features two Disney water parks, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, and the retail and recreation area, Disney Springs. A valid ticket and Park Pass reservation are needed to enter each Park and Park Hopper hours begin at 2 p.m. daily. A theme park reservation can be made via the Walt Disney World website.
