UPDATE: Elsa has been downgraded to a tropical storm since this writing.
Disney World is no stranger to severe weather in the summer.
There are regular thunderstorms and very high temperatures to be aware of, and summer is also hurricane season. Hurricanes rarely make landfall in Orlando, but when they do, Disney World has shut down the parks a handful of times in the past. We’ve been keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Elsa, and we have an update you need to be aware of if you’re heading to Disney World in the next week.
