News and Views

Three is not a magic number

For the first time in 118 years, four hurricanes have hit the same state. Florida is now cleaning up from Hurricane Jeanne, the third major (Category 3 or higher) hurricane this year. Three of these hurricanes have hit the Walt Disney World area. While Disney's property has survived mostly intact, the surrounding area becomes more and more devastated with each storm. Power outages, gas shortages, flooding, trees uprooted and damaged and destroyed homes abound. Words just can't do justice to the devastation visited upon Florida, and Central Florida in particular.

Jeanne hit the area as a Category 2 storm, and the weather station at the top of the Swan/Dolphin complex measure a top wind speed of 83 mph.

Closing down

All Disney parks and recreation areas were closed by 7 p.m. on Saturday. All evening shows scheduled for after 7:00, including Cirque du Soleil, the second and third performances of the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue, and the last performance of the Spirit of Aloha Luau, were all cancelled. All park hours for Sunday were cancelled, as was the International Distance Triathlon scheduled to be run around the property that day. All guests at the Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, as well as those at Disney's DVC resort in Vero Beach, were moved to other Walt Disney World hotels.

Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando also closed their parks at 7 p.m. on Saturday and kept them closed on Sunday.

Opening back up

It is expected that most, if not all, parks will be open today, but that is subject to change depending on the damage assessment in the morning and the ability of Cast Members to make it to the park. Typhoon Lagoon will be closed. Disney's Vero Beach Resort will not open until Saturday.

Due to the impact of Hurricane Jeanne, the Coral Reef restaurant will not be operating until Sunday, October 3. The Living Seas pavilion and all dive programs (including Dolphins in Depth, Aquatour, and Dive Quest) will be operating as normal beginning on Monday.

Now experienced with dealing with guests experiencing hurricane-fueled cabin fever, Disney filled three channels with a continuous loop of movies, including Armaggedon, The Count of Monte Cristo, Dead Poets Society, Pearl Harbor, The Sixth Sense, Pirates of the Caribbean, Remember the Titans, Shanghai Noon, Holes, The Parent Trap, The Little Mermaid, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Finding Nemo, Tarzan, Toy Story. Movies were segregated by channel based on target audience, which was probably helpful to parents.

Airport closure

The Orlando International Airport closed at 5 p.m. on Saturday, and is expected to open today at noon. There is some water in the main terminal and airsides that is being assessed by airport staff. Travelers are being asked to check with their airlines for the status of their flights.

Cruise Line changes

The Disney Cruise Line has modified the itineraries of the Disney Wonder and Disney Magic because of the storm. The Wonder's three night cruise to the Bahamas that left on September 23 was modified to a four-night cruise to Cozumel, returning today to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale. It will leave on a three-night cruise to the Bahamas, pending port conditions, later today. The Magic's seven-night cruise scheduled to depart from Port Canaveral on Saturday, will instead be a five-night cruise to Cozumel and Costa Maya leaving from Port Everglades today. Disney is arranging transportation to get people to and from Port Everglades, and is offering special incentives for people to choose to cruise.

Much of the state of Florida has sustained significant damage. Six million people across the state are without power. A great deal of flooding is expected this week, as the runoff from the storm starts making its way into lakes, rivers, and other waterways.

Help those in need

If you wish to offer assistance in any form, we suggest that you contact the American Red Cross (link).

Disney's fund for cast members who lost their homes or suffered other losses, is accepting donations from other cast members and the general public. You can contribute by calling the Vista Federal Credit Union at 800-83-VISTA (800-838-4782) or by mail to:

Our thoughts and prayers here at MousePlanet are with those who have been affected by all of this year's hurricanes.

Time running out on Wonders of Life?

If you enjoy the Wonders of Life and you'd like one last chance to see it, you may want to make reservations for the Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday time. We are hearing that the pavilion may open for those peak seasons to meet its quota to qualify for seasonal status, then close for good after the beginning of the year (after Disney gets its $3-6 million tax writeoff for running the attraction seasonally this year).

Apparently, Disney closed the pavilion in May during the test of evening Extra Magic Hours. It had been planned to be open from 9 p.m. - 12 a.m. and had tremendous attendance at 9:00 (the fourth highest pavilion attendance-wise that evening). About an hour and a half to two hours later, attraction leads got a call from an executive saying "Close the pavliion, attendance is bad," so they had to close up an hour early. The pavilion hasn't reopened since. There is a rumor that Disney wanted to close either Spaceship Earth or Wonders of Life that evening, and a higher-up was protective over Spaceship Earth and decided on Wonders of Life. It's starting to look like (as Mr. Potato Head says in Toy Story) "Humpty Dumpty was pushed."

Man dies after fall while getting on Universal Studios' Mummy ride

39-year-old Jose Valadez died last Wednesday following a fall onto the track in front of the roller coaster cars in the boarding area of the Revenge of the Mummy attraction at Universal Studios Florida on Tuesday. Valadez, who was waiting for a liver transplant after being diagnosed with hepatitis C, was taking a day off from filling out paperwork and seeing doctors to visit the park with his wife. When they reached the Mummy ride, she stayed outside with his wheelchair while he went into the queue, mistakenly believing that the attraction was not wheelchair-accessible.

Valadez got to the boarding area, and when the air gates opened to load the cars, somehow fell in front of the car. The air gates at the attraction are mostly metal, though there is about a foot of flexible plastic at the edge closest to the car. It is uncertain how he fell. When he fell, he hit his head on the tracks. He then complained of stomach pains and an inability to feel his leg.

Doctors at Orlando Regional Medical Center reportedly had to remove his spleen. His liver condition complicated the procedure, and he died at 11 a.m. on Wednesday. His death was ruled accidental following an autopsy on Thursday.

Universal reportedly closed off the front row of the coaster during its investigation, and stationed extra employees at each loading station to stand between riders and the track. This is the second fatal accident at Universal in a year. A woman died after passing out on the Incredible Hulk roller coaster at the Islands of Adventure park last September. A camera at the ride may have captured Valadez' fall, but Universal is not releasing the videotape to the media. The medical examiner's office has seen the tape.

Valadez' wife has said that she does not plan to sue Universal.

Ears to the ground

…Apparently, the reason that the planned reopening of the sea cabs at Epcot's The Living Seas pavilion never happened is because there is a small leak in the tank in the area of the ride. The substantial cost involved in fixing this has delayed the return of the sea cabs indefinitely.

…Despite rumors to the contrary, Imagineering is still looking at a possible renovation/refurbishment/rehabilitation of Spaceship Earth.

…Tom McAlpin, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for the Disney Cruise Line, has been promoted to President of the operation following the departure of former president Karl Holz to become president and chief operating officer of Euro Disney SAS.

…Cypress Gardens has set November 18 as its opening day. We're not sure whether or not there's any symbolism to the opening on Mickey Mouse's birthday.

…Payment in full is now required at reservation time for the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue, Spirit of Aloha Luau Dinner Show, and Mickey's Backyard Barbeque. Full refunds will be given for cancellations at least 48 hours in advance. If the show is part of resort package, guests must provide a credit card to guarantee their reservation, and it will be charged if the guest is a no-show or if the reservation is cancelled less than 48 hours in advance.
