[QUOTE=WishUponAStar;985993]It depends on the storm. I was there in 2001 (I think it was 2001) when a hurricane was SUPPOSED to cross over Central Florida & [I]they sent out these little sheets with updated park times, where to go for information, schedule interuptions, etc.[/I] It turned out to be just a tropical storm & nothing was too badly effected. I don’t even remember a park closing at all.
Last summer in August I was there for another Tropical Storm, which was never suspected to make landfall as a hurricane & they also sent out an “inclement weather” bulletin. None of the parks ever closed & I don’t even remember any park times being effected, the parks were EMPTY! I loved it. haha
[I]I know we didn’t lose power in either storm but I think Disney has some pretty good backup generators.
If there was a major hurricane to cross over that section of Florida, like god forbid a Cat.2-5 or something I am SURE there would be more serious warnings & evacuations.
It all depends on the strength & the path I am sure.[/[/I]QUOTE]
Having lived in Typhoon ally before as well as 2 SE coastal states that’s some good advice Wish.
However, there are a couple of things i’d add to your packing list if you travel south during Hurricane season:
- x-tra Cash. When storms hit sometimes if power does go certain items tend to be cash-n-carry.
- Flashlight/batteries. That should always be a given anyway.
- A Boat:laugh:
