20 Photos of deserted Disney World completely empty during Hurricane Matthew

Posted · Add Comment

With Hurricane Matthew approaching Florida last week, Walt Disney World closed for only the 4th time in its history. A few hardcore Disney fans and cast members did not disappoint and stuck around until the last minute to take some amazing photos. Empty Disney Parks, completely deserted – it’s something you’ll probably never see again in your lifetime.

Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom (along with the water parks, the Disney Springs district, and the ESPN Wide World of Sports) all closed on Friday, October 7, 2016 in anticipation of 70-90 mph winds and rain. But fortunately for Orlando, at the last minute, Hurricane Matthew did not make landfall and so Disney World was spared.

Back at it again tomorrow. 🚘🚔🚖 #HurricaneMatthew #WaltDisneyWorld #20DollarToll

Spent my last day in Disney at Epcot and left before Hurricane Matthew hit! It's been a magical week!

When you invite everyone over for your Food and Wine festival and no one shows…
