Evacuating to Disney World!

Thanks to Hurricane Florence we are under an evacuation order effective tomorrow at noon. I was texting with DH while I was at work as to what he felt our best course of action would be and he responded with “you know we still have 6 day park hoppers we haven’t used.” “ummm, are you saying what I think you’re saying?” So needless to say I rushed home at 6:30 and by 7 had a room booked at the Best Western at Lake Buena Vista for the rest of the week. I have packed for all four of us and he has been booking whatever FastPasses he could manage with 24 hours notice. This is definitely a “do less enjoy more” trip since it is so last minute! This time tomorrow we should be grabbing dinner at Disney Springs!

Okay, I'm . I don't know if I should say congratulations or send pixies. I think it's great that you're able to go on a last minute trip to DW but the reason behind your going sucks.

Way to stay positive! It's great to take something potentially stressful and use it for some family time. Many pixies everything is ok back home!

Is there anywhere else a PassPorter would reasonably think to go given unused tickets?

Seems like a foregone conclusion to me.

for your home and a magical escape trip.

WDW sounds like the perfect place to evacuate to in the midst of a huge storm.
