Earlier today, Inside the Magic, reported on the different closures that would take place at Walt Disney World Resort in the wake of the coming storm. However, the Orlando theme park later walked back on those closures, only shutting Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and multiple miniature golf courses instead.

On the other hand, the Orlando international airport recently announced a complete cease on all its operations starting tomorrow, Wednesday, November 9, at 4 pm until circumstances permit operations to resume. Airport officials stated they would continue to monitor Tropical Storm Nicole to determine the potential impact at MCO. You can read more about this story by clicking here.
