Can’t promise anything…

… but this is possibly the last post regarding hurricane’s and Disney World for the season. The fine folks at the hurricane prediction center say there is less than a 33% chance that another big storm will make landfall this season and an even smaller chance it will hit florida, let alone the Orlando area. (Famous last words, I know.) I certainly hope that’s the case, because I’m moving to the Orlando area this month. (Looking for work too, if anyone has any pointers.)

Kevin Yee has posted his take (with photos) of the damage done to the resort by Jeanne and her two cohorts. He includes a little more details on the damage done to ‘The Living Seas’ pavillion at Epcot. Kevin also points out some of the damage to local non-disney hotels, some so serious they’ve closed down completely. If you have a reservation at the Hotel Royal Plaza, you will need to reschedule for somewhere else.

Finally, WDWMagic is reporting that the Honey I Shrunk The Kids movie set is down for repairs due to damage from Hurricane Jeanne. No reopening date is set.

    Hi, I have a trip planned to Disney in Orlando Oct. 16 2004, Can anyone tell me if there are any rides closed due to any of the hurricanes? I am anxiously waiting! Also, I have never been, and I am thinking about buying one of those very small video cameras that also take still photos along, do you think this would be ok to take on most of the dry rides? Please let me know quick, Im about ready to start packing! thanks so much, Sherri

    The only attraction that might be closed officially due to the hurricane is the “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” walk-through exhibit and playarea in Disney-MGM Studios. There are unfortunately plenty of rides closed for whatever reason. Some rides are down for refurbishment (It’s a Small World at the Magic Kingdom, for one) and others just because the park determines there aren’t enough visitors to justify them being open (Time Keeper). Some attractions are semi-permanently closed while the resort figures out what to do with them.
