Walt Disney World is Asking Fort Wilderness Campground Guests to Leave by Thursday Morning

Walt Disney World says guests staying at its Fort Wilderness campground have to leave by 11 AM on Thursday as Hurricane Matthew approaches.

Disney said it is working with guests on an individual basis, accommodating requests for relocating when necessary but also encouraging those who are able to leave the area to do so.  A Disney spokeswoman said it would make more sense for people to leave the property with their RVs than to risk damage to their vehicles.

There has been no word from Walt Disney World about whether its theme parks will close as the hurricane approaches. SeaWorld has announced  it will close early Thursday and that it will be shut down all day Friday. Universal Orlando also has not yet announced any closure plans.

I am a lifelong fan of everything Disney. My first trip to a a Disney park was to Disneyland as a child in 1970, but didn't make to Walt Disney World until I went with my wife and first child in 1990. A year doesn't go by with out at least one trip to either Disneyland or Walt Disney World. My wife and I are Disney Vacation Club members and also Charter Members of D23.
