Now, this page has been removed and replaced. According to Walt Disney World Resort, only Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Winter Summerland Minature Golf, Fantasia Gardens, and Fairways Miniature Golf will be temporarily closed on Thursday, November 10.

This is the second time this season that the Florida Disney Park has experienced closures due to a tropical storm. Tropical storm turned Hurricane Ian hit the Disney Parks in October, surpassing Hurricane Dorian, Hurricane Matthew, and Hurricane Irma as the worst storm to target the region in years. Central Florida, which typically avoids the worst aftereffects, faced significant flooding and wind damage.
