UPDATE: All rides have returned to their normal operations.
Heads up if you’re in Disney World right now!
We’ve seen severe weather before in the parks, and it looks like we’ve got some more rolling in now. When storms arrive, particularly with heavy lightning, we can see rides or forms of transportation in Disney World go down temporarily. And that’s exactly what we’re seeing right now for ALL 4 Disney World theme parks. Let’s take a look!
Just about 15 minutes ago, we took a look at the My Disney Experience app and noticed that a WHOLE bunch of rides throughout Disney World’s theme parks were temporarily closed!
Everything from Frozen Ever After in EPCOT to Journey Into Imagination with Figment has been impacted.
And it’s not just outdoor rides that have been impacted. Indoor attractions, like Pirates of the Caribbean and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, have also been affected.
According to a Cast Member who we spoke with, there was a power surge. This appears to have caused many of these indoor rides to close.
Note that just minutes after we took these screenshots some rides became available again. For example, as of 2:45PM ET, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is showing a 30 minute standby wait (as opposed to being temporarily unavailable as shown in the screenshot below). But, many of the attractions shown here do continue to be closed.
If you’re in Disney World right now, be aware that many of these attractions are unavailable at the moment. Disney hasn’t shared when they’ll become available again. Be sure to check on your My Disney Experience app for more updates and stay tuned to us here at DFB for more news.
