Disney’s Fort Wilderness moving guests in tents & asking guests to remove decor due to Severe Storms

As severe weather nears Central Florida, Walt Disney World is preparing for high winds and heavy rain, issuing an advisory to guests at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.

Disney’s Fort Wilderness Moving Guests in Tents & Asking Guests to Remove Decor due to Severe Storm!

Guests currently staying at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground have been issued letters advising them to stow holiday decor and outdoor belongings, and in addition the resort is making alternate accommodations for guests staying in tents.

Walt Disney World has issued the following letter to guests:

“As you may be aware, we are anticipating potential inclement weather this weekend. The storm may bring high winds in this area beginning Saturday, Dec. 16. As we continue to monitor the weather, we are asking that all guests remove and stow all outside items, including decor, and take in camper awnings. We ask for your assistance and cooperation in removing these items. The safety of our guests and Cast is always our first priority and we will have Cast Members available to assist with these requests. If you’re staying in a tent, please call 407-939-2744 to make alternate arrangements.”

Walt Disney World has also canceled tonight's Disney Jollywood Nights, Saturday December 16 due to the expected non-tropical storm that is set to bring strong thunderstorms, heavy rain, gusty winds, and the potential for tornados to Central Florida.

Typically, events at Walt Disney World are held “rain or shine,” but due to the severity of the forcast weather, Jollywood Nights was canceled due to inclement weather.

Those who paid for tickets to tonight’s event should receive an automatic refund via the original payment method within 7-10 business days.

Guests with questions should contact Walt Disney World by calling (407) 939-5277 for more information.

Jollywood Nights is one of many events that is being canceled due to the severe weather, check here for the latest on events being canceled.
