Walt Disney World Escapes Worst of the Weather
Tropical Storm Fay’s presence continues to be felt around the Walt Disney World area as it very slowly moves off to the east of the State, although its effects are starting to subside. Only light winds and rain blighted park-goers experience yesterday, with the threat of an early park closing not coming to pass. Crowds were noticeably lighter than normal however, which meant short wait times at the attractions for those who chose to brave the conditions.
Although afternoon parades at both the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom were brought forward to escape the weather, schedules have remained largely unaffected by the storm.
Today’s park hours will run as per normal, although conditions are likely to be much the same as yesterday, with weather bands on the outskirts of Fay passing through.
As for the Tropical Storm itself, the latest path has it predicted to ‘boomerang’ back towards the northern counties of Florida and into Georgia, picking up intensity as it reaches the Atlantic coast and possibly being upgraded to a Category 1 hurricane on its return inland.
