Interesting addition for your article, on news 6 they just reported that this was “NOT A DISNEY DECISION TO CLOSE, THEY WANTED TO STAY OPEN, ORANGE COUNTY FORCED THEM SAYING IF ANY DRIVERS OF BUSSES OR DISNEY VEHICLES WOULD BE SUJECT TO ARREST DUE TO COUNTY WIDE CERFEW”. Disney waited til last minute yesterday to evacuate, and has a reputation locally of really becoming a little on the edge of safety. We get it, they’re a corporation, but the county and state have been calling more shots against Disney’s behalf lately.

Do you know how they’ll know if you’re a resort guest or not.. or how they’ll monitor that with all the disney springs entrances?

And horribly misspelled, too (the stuff in quotes).

Yes, they’re opened as soon as they can. 5pm for some areas. The only reason they closed was because Orange County MADE them. Disney disappointedly doesn’t have best interest or safety of their cast members or guests in mind. Thankfully, we have the govenrment to keep them in check. (How scary is that?)
