Visitors to Florida seem fascinated by Hurricanes and rightly so. We have had our fair share of these nasty weather events, although the last big one hit New York and New Jersey instead! In the Orlando area we are far enough away from the coasts that when one comes through, its impact is typically muted compared to the coasts. In fact, Disney has only closed a few times due to hurricanes. That said, if a hurricane is imminent, you will want to watch it closely, since while the theme parks may stay open, the airports and other travel services may be closed.
