    Message from a pal at SW....she is working today and the park will close early Saturday.....stay closed sunday and monday with a skeleton crew on the site to look out for the animals - just also got a message from someone at BG and the same applies there.
    Sue says that SW have taken in dolphins from the Keys until it is safe for them to go back.

    The waiting is killing me! I wish it was over.
    I really wish I was there to help out with the animals we have become so fond of....worried about them

    I know we are miles away from any effected area, but the thought of the hurricane scares me.
    I just really want everyone to stay safe.

    I actually wish I was there rather than here so I knew what was happening with friends and the animals we have become close to.
    Keith,,,,you are probably going to see a lot of disruption on your upcoming trip

    I actually feel the same way and I know people who are there will think I'm mad, but I'd rather know what was going on with the villa

    Well you say that and it's possible sure because by all accounts it's a more severe one than normal but the last time there was a really bad one we were out there. The Dolphin was brill and though they kept us in the hotel they couldn't do enough for us. My only problem was I wanted to try and photograph it and they very badly didn't want me going near any windows! Anyway, when we got outside, trees were down, pool cages were everywhere. I was back there again 3 weeks later and other than the trees by fort wilderness, you wouldn't have known anything had happened!

    Of course that's a tourist perspective. I know that even back then a lot of home owners had devastating losses and couldn't get contractors to fix things because of demand and slow insurance payouts. Certainly though it was amazing how quickly the tourist areas were cleared/fixed/restored.

    So, we'll see

    I do hope the villa is ok though because 1) we love it to bits and wouldnt want to stay elsewhere and 2) I keep getting emails from microsoft saying all the hotels are fully booked now for those dates!

    I'm sure you all know by now that Disney is closing on Sunday and Monday. If anyone has to change their plans or cancel a trip Disney will refund or re-book with no penalties. I know that this won't end anyone's fears or concerns about friends/family in the area during this time-but knowing that the Disney Magic is not lost due to this natural disaster in the making might help to get through it easier. I'm waiting to hear from my friends who drive bus for Disney to know that they are safe as well.
