UPDATE Sept 2, 2019 5:40PM
Disney Resort hotels will remain open. Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will close beginning at 3:00PM on September 3rd and will reopen following the storm when it is safe to do so. Guests currently staying at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Copper Creek Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, and the Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort have been contacted and will be relocated to other resorts on property to help plan for anticipated weather impacts.
Special Event Cancellations
Disney After Hours at Disney’s Animal Kingdom has also been canceled for September 3rd. Guests who pre-purchased event tickets for this date are able to exchange their tickets for one of the following options:
- Tickets to attend another Disney After Hours event in 2019
- Tickets to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party even in 2019
- 1-day flexible date ticket with park hopper option (must be used by December 31, 2020)
- Receive a full refund for event ticket
Dining and Other Experience Reservations
On September 3rd, theme park dining reservations will be honored up to one hour prior to park closing. Resort dining reservations will be honored until 5:30PM. Effective immediately, cancellation policies will not be enforced for dining and other experiences, so there is no need to cancel existing reservations through September 3rd. Pre-paid dining and other experiences outside of the modified operating hours for September 3rd will be automatically cancelled and refunded.

Many of our guests with upcoming Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line vacations have been asking us about the impact of Hurricane Dorian and their magical vacations. With all of the anticipation of experiencing the magic of Disney, we know that the possibility of a hurricane may be a bit overwhelming. While we understand your concern, at this time, we simply do not know where the hurricane is likely to make landfall.
The National Weather Service only provides a 5-day projection as there are too many variables that could impact the storm. It may be another few days before we know where the storm will land. It’s too early to tell if the hurricane will land in Florida, head north, go out to sea, or even head into the gulf.
Your Dream Designer will be tracking the progress of the hurricane, and update you with any official statements from Disney. We will continue to keep you updated with any information that we have.
