As Hurricane Matthew Nears, Walt Disney World Closes for only the 4th Time Ever.
Based on the most recent forecasts for Hurricane Matthew, Walt Disney World theme parks, water parks, and all parks associated with Disney have closed their doors starting at 5PM today and will remain closed through all day Friday.
This is only the 4th time that they have closed, and all 4 times have been for hurricanes.
This storm is scary. Right now, rated a Category 4 storm, with 140+ mph winds, 165 mph wind gusts and moving at only 12 mph. It’s expected to make landfall in Florida and go up the coast to Georgia and South Carolina also, then is supposed to be making a loop back out into the Atlantic, and who knows where it’s going to go from there.
