Uhhh…Disney World, are you okay?!

the rain and heat we’re experiencing around the resort today happens every now and then. But on top of that, we’ve got huge amount of closures, cancellations, and delays we’re seeing?! It seems like everywhere we look, something new is down. We honestly don’t even know where to start with this list of struggles today (as it’s quite long), but let’s just jump right in.

Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage had to cancel their 11AM performance today. Cast Members in the area advised that we may see more cancellations for the show throughout the day, however, the show is currently running normally as of the 1PM performance.

Staying at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular show experienced technical difficulties today. The first performance of the day stopped mid show, due to the temple walls malfunctioning. The second show of the day was also affected by the same technical issues, so guests were only shown the first scene before ending the show. The crew said they “will get the problem fixed,” and encouraged guests to return to the 1:15PM, 3:15PM, and 4:30PM showtimes.

As if the technical difficulties weren’t enough, we were also warned by Guest Relations that the other showtimes could be canceled due to lightning. And, of course, lightning is in the area. So there’s that.

Anyways… back to the list. Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire in Magic Kingdom was canceled due to weather! This is pretty normal for stormy days like today, so it wasn’t too surprising.

the 10:30AM Pixar Pals Motorcade at Hollywood Studios what so significantly delayed this morning. Luckily, guests were still able to watch it, just a little later than scheduled.
