A new video captures Walt Disney World Resort’s most iconic theme park, Magic Kingdom, flooded. Disney World Guests are left wading through the water.
A visit to Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida, isn’t complete without a day at Magic Kingdom Park. The nostalgic Disney Park is home to six lands, including Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland, and Tomorrowland. With almost 40 attractions, Magic Kingdom never has a dull moment.
And while Guests rush off to Tomorrowland to experience fan-favorite attractions such as Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Tomorrowland Speedway, Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress, Monsters, Inc Laugh Floor, Space Mountain, and the brand new TRON Lightcylce / Run roller coaster… some fans found themselves in ankle deep water.
After a Florida storm surged through the Lake Buena Vista located theme park, the pathway between Tomorrowland Speedway and quick-service restaurant Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café was flooded. @MagicbandManiac took to social media on Sunday, March 5, with a Magic Kingdom video, noting, “So Tomorrowland is a little bit underwater rn.” Check out the video below:
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen issues with Magic Kingdom’s drainage. Unfortunately, it seems like when the typical Florida flash flood-style storm blows through, there are several spots within Magic Kingdom that flood. Particularly, the Tomorrowland portion of the Park seems to have the most difficult time draining quickly after storms.
The water doesn’t usually stop Disney fans, however! Whether Guests are visiting Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom – we’ve seen Guests take off shoes to walk through the water and even jump and play in it like it’s an attraction all in itself. We suppose the saying, “a rainy day at Disney is better than a rainy day in the office,” holds true.
