A number of Walt Disney World Resorts and some of its water parks are being closed temporarily in the wake of Hurricane Ian as it’s reportedly approaching Florida.
As the storm is said to have intensified, Hurricane warnings were issued for the Western Coast of Florida Monday evening, including Tampa Bay and the Dry Tortugas, an island in Monroe County in Florida.
The forecaster has warned against Hurricane Ian gaining more intensity in the next couple of days, so Walt Disney World is getting in touch with its guests about its facilities being closed temporarily. Here are all the resorts that will be closed in the next few days.
