Ive just heard from a friend who's out there at the moment that if theres even thunder everything at Disneyworld shuts down? It's not really that bad is it?

The only time I think I have ever heard of a park closing is because of a hurricane.

Thunder storms, lightning and rain are usual daily occurrence in WDW at this time of the year :yes:

There were problems at Discovery Cove yesterday, you can read about it here (http://wdisneysecrets.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19733&p=260826#post260826)

Lighting is quite pretty to watch! :yes:

We got caught in down pour last year and we watched the lighting while waiting for the bus. It is amazing thing to watch.

Poor people at Discovery cove :-(

We've been at the parks before and they have stopped the coasters from running because of the weather conditions - never closed the park though. Its a good job they dont close anything here cus of the weather, everything would always be shut! :lol:

Outside attractions do shut down because of the weather. However, I've never seen any of the indoor things shut.

A fairly obvious comment, but all of the resort pools are out of bounds whenever a lightning storm is on its way. :yes:
