We’re bringing you a food news round-up today, but our thoughts are with our co-workers, friends, and readers who are in the path of Hurricane Irma.
The Walt Disney World Resort is closed today and tomorrow due to Hurricane Irma. All theme parks, water parks, Disney Springs, and the ESPN Wide World of Sports closed last night and will remain closed tomorrow.
We are also seeing reports that guests are being told that resort hotel dining will be available until 3 p.m. today and a curfew will be imposed beginning at 7 p.m. tonight.
We’ll continue to keep you all updated with Hurricane Irma information as we get it.
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
