Some rumors about the parks at Disney World and how fast they’ll recover from Hurricane Frances. Although MSNBC is running a ticker saying that Disney World will open on Monday, the feeling is that it might be a late opening and Animal Kingdom might stay closed an extra day again. The parks again avoided a direct hit from the storm, but the winds and rain from the various bands of the hurricane still caused some damage.
The river (Rivers of America?) around Tom Sawyer Island was drained by Disney before Frances hit (Friday) in order to accommodate runoff from the storm to avoid serious flooding in the park.
This is interesting and the first I’ve heard of this. I’ll try and confirm itl.
