Florida weather is notoriously unpredictable with intense heat and humidity, but no one expects to see a full-fledged tornado near or in “the most magical place on Earth.”

But tonight, just beyond the iconic EPCOT sphere, a tornado could be seen a few miles from the park. As mentioned, several warnings have been issued for guests and area residents.

In the past few months alone, we’ve seen Walt Disney World Resort completely flooded more than twice.

Summer at Walt Disney World consists of plenty of sunshine, but it’s also common to see several thunderstorms and random showers. Sometimes these rain showers can even turn into torrential downpours, which could really change the course of your day at times, as some Disney World attractions may close due to rain.

This is a developing story, we will update our article as more information is released.

Walt Disney World Resort has four theme parks: Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios Theme Park. It also includes two Disney water parks, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, as well as the retail and entertainment area, Disney Springs. A valid ticket and Park Pass reservation is required to enter each park and Park Hopper hours begin at 2 p.m. daily. A theme park reservation can be made through the Walt Disney World website.
