Wilma closes parks, but winds only expected at tropical storm strength

After being battered by three hurricanes last year, Walt Disney World was starting to look like it might escape cleanly in this year's devastating hurricane season—until Hurricane Wilma turned for Florida last week. While the resort area won't escape cleanly, it won't be as bad as feared, either. At publication deadline, predictions were only for tropical storm-force winds in the Orlando area, though hurricane-force winds were a likelihood to the south, with the strongest winds predicted to hit Florida at Marco Island on the Gulf coast and cross the state before heading into the Atlantic near West Palm Beach.

Wilma, which tied the record for most hurricanes in a year (12) and most named storms in a year (21, which has since fallen when Tropical Storm Alpha was named Saturday afternoon) devastated Mexico's Yucatan peninsula—hovering in the area for a couple of days—before heading east toward Florida.

Closings and evacuations

Thanks to last year's experience, Disney had storm-tested plans already in place. All theme parks and water parks, as well as Downtown Disney and Disney's Wide World of Sports, are closed today.

The third showing of the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue last night was canceled, but Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party went on as scheduled. Any guests who were unable to attend the event should contact Guest Communications (link) for refunds on their tickets.

All guests have been evacuated from Fort Wilderness to the All-Star resorts. Most cast members from Fort Wilderness will be reporting for duty at the Wilderness Lodge today.

Cast members at all resort locations are being told to report for work today either no later than 7 a.m. or no earlier than 2 p.m., in order to avoid travel during the expected peak of the storm. Disney is providing child care for children of cast members due to the closure of area schools today.

Reservation restrictions and cancellations, cruise rerouting

Beginning on Friday, only Florida residents were allowed to make new hotel reservations, so that there would be enough rooms for evacuees.

Guests with check-in dates from Friday, October 21, through today were able to have the standard fees waived for cancellation or date changes to the room portion of their trips. Penalty fees for cancellation or changes to airline tickets were up to the airlines.

A fleet of buses is on standby call for a Disney's Magical Express evacuation plan in order to push everybody whose departure flights were cancelled, delayed or rescheduled, because those whose flights were cancelled will only be able to rebook at the airport, rather than at the Disney's Magical Express check-in desks at the resorts.

The Disney Cruise Line rerouted the Disney Magic, freshly back from dry dock, from the Western Caribbean to the Eastern Caribbean this week to keep the ship out of Wilma's path. The Disney Wonder, which always takes passage in the East, left Port Canaveral safely on Sunday, and will be out of harm's way while Wilma passes through.

MousePlanet events at MouseFest

Just a reminder that MouseFest is scheduled for November 30 – December 5 (land) and December 4–8 (sea). MouseFest Gold Sponsor MousePlanet is organizing three events and officially participating in a fourth during the land portion.

Glover holes out Funai Classic win before the storm

In a golf tournament where many big names didn't make the cut and there was much ado about the renovations to the marquee Magnolia course, Lucas Glover sank an extremely difficult shot from a bunker to win the Funai Classic at Walt Disney World yesterday as Hurricane Wilma approached Florida.

While there was much talk about the lengthening of the Magnolia course over the summer, the winning four-round total of 265 was one stroke under Ryan Palmer's winning total of 266 from last year, and the same as 2003 champion Vijay Singh's score.

Glover made a 40-foot birdie putt from the fringe of the green on the 17th hole Sunday to go to 22 strokes under par, but saved the best for last. Starting to struggle on the final hole, Glover first landed in the left rough before dropping his next shot into the bunker in front of the green. With things looking grim for his chances to win, Glover slammed his bunker shot into the air, landing on the green and rolling in from 5 feet away for a final tally of 23 strokes under par.

Glover then had to wait for the final groups to finish before being certain of his win. Tom Pernice Jr. missed a 15-foot putt on the final hole to finish one stroke back at 266. Finishing in a five-way tie for third, two strokes back, were Geoff Ogilvy, defending champion Ryan Palmer, Justin Rose, Rich Beem and Harrison Frazar.

The tournament still managed to provide some excitement despite the list of those who did not make the cut and therefore did not play on Saturday (except to finish the rain-shortened second round) and Sunday, including Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh, the top two on the money list for this year's tour.

But will the float go with the parade to Universal Studios this year?

The 79th running of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 24 will feature a Disney touch. Walt Disney World is sending the venerable “S.S. Celebration” Showboat float used in many parades over the years to New York, where it will carry a host of Disney characters. Joining Mickey Mouse and friends aboard the 33-foot tall float will be LeAnn Rimes, who will sing “Remember When,” the theme song for the “Happiest Celebration on Earth.”

The float has had its 42-foot length fitted out with gold accents for the golden celebration. “But why is Disney promoting Walt Disney World if it's Disneyland's 50th anniversary?” you might ask. Well, Disneyland park has had crowds much larger than anticipated for this season, and Walt Disney World has more than 10 times as many hotel rooms to fill. Also, Walt Disney World is probably closer to more of the viewing audience than Disneyland. We can only hope that they'll at least make mention of Disneyland, and that they'll avoid making people think that it's Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary, as some recent commercials seem to do.

The nationally televised parade steps off at 9 a.m. on Thursday, November 24.
