Posted by DisGear on Sep 08, 2017

Tonight while leaving EPCOT we saw the first signs of Hurricane Irma 2017 prep under way at Walt Disney World. Approximately 50 coach buses, which we expect are slated for hotel evacuation and several tree trimming/power pole repair trucks were present. As we were leaving we noticed more tree trimming and power pole repair trucks streaming in to the parking lot. We also noticed what seemed to be a similar activity on the old runway by Magic Kingdom.

Yes, you heard that right, you can now bring your horse with you to any Disney park. In addition, you can also bring your horse with you on rides where permitted.
