    Hmm, looks like they are projecting a hit on central Florida but there's still a chance it will miss completely...

    But relax folks, the Imagineers design the possibility of hurricanes into most attractions.

          Macarena will protect you!!!
          As nice as the other parks are, we must always remember that it all began at Disneyland. Disneyland should be the crown jewel in the Disney crown.

                  All CMs will be notified today and alerted to ride-out positions pending the updated track later today. The current track does indeed hit WDW, and there is no way at this point that WDW will not feel anything from this system.

                  The Hurricane Cancellation policy is supposed to go into effect later today.

                    I've never been there, but I know a lot of great baseball players come from there. As a baseball fan, and because I am a fellow member of the human race, I say prayers for your part of the world as well.

                          oh, I am praying constantly....

                          1.that the hurricane will bypass my Gulf Coast and
                          2.that our vacation will still go along as planned.
                          3.that God will protect everyone in the storm's path.
