Central Florida’s Orlando has been named as the theme park capital of the world, and for good reason. All four parks making up Walt Disney World (Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT), both Universal Orlando Resort theme parks, SeaWorld, and more major theme parks line the boulevard of I-4.
However, Florida is also the lightning capital of the world…and it makes for an inconvenient mix.
Anyone who’s frequently visited Walt Disney World during the summer knows that Central Florida’s weather is predictably unpredictable. For example, it’ll likely rain at least once a day in the summer, so it’s best to be prepared for the rain.
That being said, Florida residents know it’s best to be prepared for a hurricane at any time, just in case something quickly forms in a flash…because storms can easily form in an instant and make landfall in the Sunshine State.
Most recently, another subtropical storm has been spotted and named, marking the 5th named storm of the year.
According to a report by Click Orlando, Subtropical Storm Don formed early this morning (July 14) halfway in-between Bermuda and the Azores.
Reportedly, the storm “has maximum sustained winds near 50 mph with higher gusts.”
However, Subtropical Storm Don is expected to gradually weaken in the next few days, according to Click Orlando. Not only that but the storm isn’t expected to hit Florida at all.
While things could always change, it doesn’t seem that Subtropical Storm Don is going to affect any upcoming visits to Walt Disney World.
