Hurricane Charley WDW Update

Deb Wills excellent AllEarsNet has the update on the park’s reaction to Charley.

— All four theme parks will offer Extra Magic Hour to Resort Guests beginning at 8am on August 13. World Showcase at Epcot will open at 10am. Visit the parks early as that will be the best part of the day weather-wise. (3:00pm 8/12)
— The 8/13 Spirit of Aloha 5:15pm and 8:00pm shows Cancelled!
— No more Priority Seatings Accepted at RESORTS for 8/13; if you currently have them they will (as of now) be honored.

Update: Disney World has put Phase III of its hurricane preparation plan into effect. That involves securing loose items (trash cans, storage bins, construction materials, etc) and having the ‘ready teams’ located on site for immediate help if needed. Hurricane is expect to be a phase III with winds of over 120 MPH when it makes landfall just 60 miles to the southwest of Orlando (with WDW on Orlando’s SW corner).
