Disney World Rescinds Initial Resort Closure and Cancelation Announcement for Tropical Storm Nicole

The Disney World website has been updated to rescind earlier announcements for resort closures and experience cancelations due to Tropical Storm Nicole. In a statement earlier this morning, Disney World noted that the following closures and cancelations would occur due to Tropical Storm Nicole:

Walt Disney World Resort Hotels

For the safety of our Guests and Cast Members, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Copper Creek Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and the Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort will be closed Wednesday, November 9 through Friday, November 11. We are contacting Guests with current and upcoming reservations impacted by this change. 

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


Performances of Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue have been cancelled for Wednesday, November 9 through Friday, November 11 in light of the temporary closure of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. Guests with pre-paid reservations will be automatically cancelled and refunded.

In an update to the Disney World website shortly before 10am, the notices above were removed. Instead, the current notice below is only for the water parks and mini-golf experiences:

Walt Disney World Theme Parks and Water Parks

Walt Disney World Theme Parks are currently operating under normal conditions. Please continue to monitor news outlets for the latest weather information. 

Walt Disney World Water Parks and Miniature Golf locations are temporarily closed on Thursday, November 10: 

  • Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park (Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park is currently closed for the season.)
  • Winter Summerland Miniature Golf
  • Fantasia Gardens
  • Fairways Miniature Golf

It’s possible that the earlier announcement about resort closures and experience cancelations was premature. What we do know is that Disney World will continue to track Tropical Storm Nicole and provide more updates at a later time. We will continue to provide those updates to you as they happen.
