The latest track has it making landfall along the panhandle of Florida early Friday morning as a hurricane. Florida remains in a State of Emergency as the state prepares for the storm.

Tropical Storm and Hurricane Watches are now in effect for the west coast of the state, but it is expected that they will be announced for Central Florida later today.

  1. I am sure wdw will say something eventually universal do not hold your breathe they do not care for anyone! Schools are closed wont be long now.

    • Love the positive response. Not true. They do care. They did in fact close for Hurricane Irma. Told all guests to stay in rooms. Brought boxed food for guests to eat.

  2. Cindy, what schools are closed? I haven’t seen anything yet. Also, US has limited when PH can use their HHN ticket and this was the last week, wondering if they will extend.
