Heavy Downpour Causes Flooding in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom



Walt Disney World Resort was hit with torrential rain today which caused instances of flooding throughout the park, especially in Tomorrowland.
Check it out:
We have even heard reports that flooding has seeped into the queues to attractions such as Space Mountain.
Despite these reports, the attraction remained fully operational, though other attractions in the area like the Tomorrowland Speedway closed due to the storm.

But that is reported to not be the case for the other half of the park.

While it is common for rain to strike Magic Kingdom park, and it is common for rides to close due to lightning in the area, it is very uncommon for rain to be so intense that flooding and ride shutdowns occur to this degree. The last time substantial flooding was reported was back in February. Big Top Souvenirs in Story Book Circus was forced to close down and have its carpeting completely replaced.

This torrential downpour comes the day before all four Disney World theme parks are expected to be at capacity for the first time since their reopening as all park pass reservations for Annual Passholders, Disney Resort Guests, and theme park ticket holders are completely booked for Saturday, September 5 at Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
But according to Weather.com, weather tomorrow should be typical of any Disney day with a high of 91 degrees Fahrenheit and a low of 76. Only a 20% chance of rain but they are not ruling out the possibility or a stray thunderstorm rolling in.
Guests should also be aware that the UV Index is supposed to be a level 10. We strongly recommend that you do your best to stay covered, shaded, and keep applying sunscreen to protect yourselves.
