Walt Disney World’s location is one of the perfect places for a vacation resort, especially one as big as the Most Magical Place on Earth.
Unlike vacation destinations in the north, Walt Disney World Resort operations continue throughout the entire year, staying open through the winter months.
Walt Disney World Has Size On Its Side
It’s also no secret that Walt Disney World has the advantage of size, which is why the vacation destination is so massive. After all, Walt Disney World is made up of four theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT), two water parks (Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach), a massive town center (Disney Springs), and several resort hotels.
It would seem that the only drawbacks to the resort’s location in Central Florida are also the biggest pros: the weather.
The Biggest Cons Are Also the Biggest Pros
Florida weather is fickle, and it can seem, at times, that it only has three settings: unbearably hot, uncomfortably chilly, and unrelentingly rainy.
Although this year’s hurricane season (which began in June and lasts until the end of November) has been seemingly forgiving, locals can tell you that this is the time of year when things are just getting started.
And this year is no different: the National Hurricane Center has spotted multiple systems forming in the Atlantic. Out of all three, it seems that only one may be a threat for the Sunshine State: Tropical Storm Franklin.
Tropical Storm Franklin Is On Its Way

Currently, Tropical Storm Franklin is following all of the correct steps to become a hurricane. According to an official report, “forecasters said the storm was still in good shape to strengthen into a Category 2 hurricane with 110 mph winds over the weekend as it moved northeast.”
It’s causing enough concern for Governor DeSantis to alert Florida’s Emergency Management team:
I’ve directed @KevinGuthrieFL & the FL Emergency Management team to prepare for a potential tropical system currently moving across the Yucatán Peninsula.
Residents should remain vigilant and prepare for possible impacts early next week.

Even On Vacation, It’s Best to Be Prepared
Walt Disney World’s location in Central Florida makes for an inconvenient hurricane season, and if residents are being urged to prepare, then visitors should also prepare for this storm to make landfall.
