    A "NOT SO ORDINARY ADVENTURE" as it turned out! I'm just glad you were both safe been watching the news over here in the UK and THE LAST TIME I saw devastation on the scale the Ian brought to Florida was when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans (made worse by the levys breaching) I'm sure eventually Florida and Floridians will recover they are resilient! R.I.P to those that lost their lives in Florida to this hurricane and my thoughts and prayers go out from over the Atlantic in the UK to their families and friends at such a devastating time 😢

      As a Floridian I think you for your comment❤ we truly are resilient. We made it through Andrew as a category five in 1987 I believe will make it through this as well. And when the next hurricane comes we’ll make it through that one too. But it always feels good to know we have prayers From people around the world prayers are powerful thing.

    New fan here! I was also taking a Disney vacation when hurricane Ian hit and I was very impressed with how Disney handled everything. My family has never experienced a hurricane so we were a bit nervous but we felt very safe at our resort (Pop Century Resort). We actually planned this vacation to celebrate my nephew's birthday so I really appreciated the cast members and characters for putting on dance parties, trivia, games, and sing alongs for the kiddos. They also provided us with flashlights, batteries, and some other useful items to prepare for the hurricane. My family and I were extremely thankful for their service.

They made our adventure memorable and our sons experience magical even in a Hurricane💙💙💙 Our hearts go out to everyone throughout Florida and the East coast ..

    Peter, I don't know how long ago you lived in New England but you must have witnessed worse storms than that. 😁I live in central Massachusetts and we have gotten some horrible storms over the years. The Blizzard of 78. Hurricane Bob, Hurricane Gloria. The Blizzard of 93. In 2008 we had a microburst hit the cemetery I work in and we closed for four days to pick up all the downed limbs and trees. The same year, we had a devastating ice storm in central Mass. At my house, we lost power for 14 days. Half the roads in my town were shut down for days until the National Guard came in to clear the debris out of the roads so they were drivable. Then we had the freak 2010 October snow storm. A lot of trees still had leaves on them so they held more snow. The damage was almost as bad as the ice storm two years earlier. Then the EF3 tornado in 2011 that started in Springfield and carved a path across the state all the way to Charlton. That winter, after a snowfall, a satellite took a picture of the tornado's path and it looked like a new highway going across the state.
    Stay safe. Hope you have a good time on the rest of your trip. ☺

    Thank you for sharing so much of your experience. We were staying pretty close to where you were but had much less flooding and debris. We were also on the ground floor so it was amazing to see your footage from an upper level and from the water across from DS. We too feel fortunate to have made it through the experience without issue.

    We're currently at Disney World, travelling from England staying just off site. We generally got off easy all things considered but our thoughts go out to those who weren't so lucky. So many people arrived at our hotel with their pets from coastal towns. By the time it hit LBV the storm had downgraded significantly but still a lot of damage. That is interrupted our holiday was the least of it but hopefully everything will be cleared and back to normal soon

    I got so lucky with planning as my vacay at Disney World was the week before! I actually wanted to push it back by one week, glad I didn’t!
    So sad seeing all the damage done. And cool to see the cast members try to be bring some joy. Y’all stay safe.

    I'm in Lakeland for my daughters baby shower and was supposed to head home Wednesday until Ian decided to make an appearance so now we leave Saturday. I'm glad to see you guys were able to ride it out at the hotel. I felt like a little piece of home was with me during the storm knowing you guys were here. Safe travels, see you at Disneyland soon

    I was also at SSR during the Hurricane. The cast members were all fabulous! I’ve seen so many disheartening stories about guests lately but encountered only extremely friendly and courteous guests that week. It was wonderful to see everyone come together. My heart goes out to those on the coast snd those who were affected.

    This is absolutely amazing!! I live right outside of New Orleans So this is so extremely comical to see people from California getting ready for a hurricane… Of course my heart goes out to you, but your shopping is so extremely different than the way we shop before a hurricane. I absolutely hate it for y’all that y’all had to experience such a extremely violent hurricane for your first experience… I truly couldn’t help but laugh when I heard people using a blower before 155 mile an hour hurricane comes… Maybe they’re from California too!! Lol. I’m honestly just trying to make y’all smile I’m not trying to be ugly… You can never really get used to continuously going through hurricane after hurricane… But what I thought was so cool is that y’all were together working together and I hope everything turned out fine for yall. Prayers for everyone affected horrible natural disaster… People, understand when I say that Florida needs our help right now! If everyone takes for a couple of dollars to help people who have lost everything Imagine how much it will help out people in Florida… Please dig deep into your pockets! I am a disabled mother of three children so if I can afford to give a little, then so can you

    As a Floridian who had to evacuate and stayed at Disney, it’s interesting to see people calm at Disney to be honest. A lot of us were so worried about our homes while at Disney during Ian. It made me forget that Disney is supposed to make you smile till I saw this video.

    Y'all are lucky to be in the middle of Florida. No storm surge. You got wind and rain. I've been through a lot of hurricanes. Starting in the1950s with Hurricane Donna. Then Gracie, Opal, Irma, actually, Opal came through Atlanta, turned around and came BACK thru! My granddaughter was being born the day Irma came through. Power out everywhere, trees down blocking roads, we had a devil of a time getting to the hospital. The wind on the bridges lifted my Subaru Outback right off its tires! So I am well aware of the danger.

    While you guys were making tacos, I was on the east coast, standing outside, watching the clouds whip across the sky. I bet you guys got to enjoy some of the nicer weather that happens right after the storm leaves. Hurricanes suck all the heat away for a few days and it's so nice.
