Episode 23 – Special Report: Hurricane Irma at WDW

The Disney Hack – Tricks and Tips for your Walt Disney World Trips! (An Unofficial Disney Podcast)

This week: Hurricane Irma’s impact on Walt Disney World and what it can mean to current, arriving and departing guests. 

Joining me this week are four Disney regulars who know a thing or two about traveling during extreme inclement weather.

Peter and Holly Bercase  are Florida residents. Holly is a native Floridian with memories from riding out several past hurricanes, including the infamous Hurricane Charley from 2004. Her Husband, Peter has some specific recent memories from last years Hurricane Matthew, which also closed down Walt Disney World for a day last October.

Also joining us is Full-Time Disney Fan and member of the Hack Pack, Mark Lucas. Mark shares how he has been keeping a close eye on Irma, as he is planning a quick trip down to Walt Disney World this week and wants to make sure he’ll be able to see everything he wants and still catch his flight back home.

Last, but not least is professional travel agent,  Jennifer Galambos. Jennifer was at Walt Disney World last year when Hurricane Matthew made landfall and was forced to take shelter at her resort.

The panel is FULL of great tips, tricks and hacks for what to do before, during and after a hurricane intrudes on your WDW vacation. If there’s any great tips you can think of that we miss, please let us know on social media or in the comments below.

I hope you enjoy the conversation.

Sub note: We do not actually encourage traveling during a hurricane. We take these extreme weather conditions very seriously and we expect you to do so as well.
