Walt Disney World Closing Theme Parks for Next Two Days Due to Hurricane Ian

Walt Disney World is closing because of Hurricane Ian. The park has announced that the gates will be shutting for an abundance of caution through September 30th according to WKMG. The hurricane has become a focus all across Florida as the state braces for its impacts. The NFL is currently debating how they will approach games played there over the weekend. Guests who were planning on making the trek down to The Magic Kingdom will have to reschedule their trips. It makes a lot of sense as the projections turn a bit more dire. Cast members working there are also brought into the conditions as Central Florida prepares. Check out their latest tweet down below!

"Walt Disney World is preparing for necessary operational adjustments based on the latest information from the National Weather Service," they wrote. "You can find the latest information about temporary closures and impacts on DisneyWorld.com/Weather. To all of our cast members and guests, please be safe!"
