UPDATE: State of Emergency Declared For Entire Florida State as Tropical Storm Ian Strengthens

The entire state of Florida is now under a State of Emergency as Tropical Storm Ian approaches from the gulf of Florida. While the previous order issued by Governor Ron DeSantis only included 24 counties, the new order includes the entire state. While the previous order included Osceola County, which holds portions of Walt Disney World, the new order has a much larger effect. While there has been no statement yet on what Walt Disney World Resort will be doing for this storm, we are expecting a statement soon.

Arrival Time

State and county partners met with Walt Disney World officials this morning to create a plan of action that will keep guests and Cast Members safe. Walt Disney World Resort is renowned for ensuring guest and Cast Member safety during hurricanes and other extreme weather. We have been keeping track of Tropical Storm Ian for days, and will continue to update you on any impacts to the resort.
