Walt Disney World Issues Statement About Tropical Storm Idalia and Cancellation Policy

Walt Disney World has issued a statement regarding Tropical Storm Idalia and their cancellation policy.

“Walt Disney World Resort is currently operating under normal conditions. We are closely monitoring the path of the projected weather as we continue to prioritize the safety of our Guests and Cast Members.

Guests may reschedule their trip or cancel their stay with us; any customary cancellation fees will be waived.”

At this time, Idalia is expected to become a Hurricane before making landfall in Florida.

Idalia is currently expected to make landfall in Florida around Wednesday morning, August 30.

Walt Disney World’s Hurricane Policy typically states that a Hurricane Warning must be issued for cancellation or change fees to be waived. However, they have adjusted that policy and are now allowing fees to be waived. We will provide updates if the resort plans any closures or other actions connected to the adverse weather conditions.
