Disney’s Hollywood Studios FLOODS as Guests run for cover

A new video shows heavy flooding at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World.

Last night, a downpour flooded streets at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Guests quickly took to social media to document their experiences in the park as they raced to take cover away from the heavy rain and flooding.

Viewers of the FOX 35 Orlando station sent in videos to the news station after the flooding. This video was seen on last night’s newscast:

According to FOX 35 Orlando, the storm responsible for the heavy rain and subsequent flooding was rare, a “summertime-style rain event where the Gulf of Mexico sea breeze collided with the Atlantic sea breeze over the Interstate 4 corridor.” Apparently, that’s the perfect combination for heavy rain–and lots of it–in a short period of time, leading to the possibility of flooding in some areas.

Guests can be seen running through the streets at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, many racing to find a dry spot to wait out the storm until it passed. There are even Guests pushing strollers through the water that covered over Hollywood Boulevard.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
