VIDEOS: Severe Flooding Impacted Disney World Last Night

There are a lot of things you can control when it comes to your Disney World vacation, but you cannot control the weather. And, since the parks are located in Central Florida, there are some pretty significant weather events that happen in the area.

Disney World regularly experiences thunderstorms in the summer months, and the parks have even shut down several times for hurricanes passing through. But, during the first part of the year, it’s pretty rare for us to see severe storms in Disney World. However, Central Florida weather is known for being unpredictable, and that was proven true last night!

The streets of Hollywood Studios were flooded in Disney World last night. Many guests were posting videos on social media of Hollywood Boulevard covered in water that was several inches deep. BBC reporter Sara Thornton said on Twitter that she was in the parks, and posted a couple videos of the flooding.

As you can see, people are wading through the street with water above their ankles in some spots.

The downpour was due to a rare, summertime-style rain event where the Gulf of Mexico sea breeze collided with the Atlantic sea breeze over the Interstate 4 corridor, according to Fox 35 Orlando. No severe weather was expected, and Central Florida was experiencing drought conditions prior to this storm.

There was also flooding seen in EPCOT — around World Showcase and near both entrances to the park. Stay tuned to DFB for more Disney World news and updates.
