Well the parks were closed for only the fourth time in their history for Hurricane Matthew. We happened to be there and can say they kept on jugging along to the bitter end. A few lucky guests got shots of a nearly empty park which had a nice apocalyptic quality to them!
Here’s all of the instagram photos we could find, but if there’s more, let us know!
With the Magic Kingdom closing for only the 5th time in 45 years I thought this was appropriate for the situation. Hope everyone remains safe, and we will see ya Real Soon!! 😊🏰😊 … … #sorryfolks #parksclosed #magickingdom #wdw #wherethemagiclive #waltdisneyworld #hurricanematthew #sadface #seeyarealsoon #besafe #beprepared #guybehindthecastle #security #disneysecurity #protectingthemagic #disneypic #ilovemyjob #unforgettablecast
It's been on my bucket list to get a "last person on Main Street" photo & I didn't think it would ever happen during the day. Disney parks closed early at 5pm today & will remain closed through tomorrow for the only the fifth time in history. We are confident we will stay safe in Bay Lake Tower as this hurricane passes & are grateful to have some extra time here when it's all over. Stay safe everyone!
Cleared all of Hollywood Studios in under 45 minutes. Getting the park "hurricane ready" was probably the most fun I've had at work in a long time, but walking out with no one in sight, no music to be heard, and sand bags guarding every door in hopes to keep Matthew out, made me realize how serious this storm could get. Please stay safe, everyone. #hurricanematthew #SUX #mybelovedstudios
