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.

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.
