I'm planning a 9 day trip to WDW and it looks like it works out best for me to go the first week of September in 2013. I love hot weather so the heat won't bother me, but I'm a little afraid while doing research because I keep hearing that this is "hurricane season". And that scares me.
Has a hurricane ever hit the WDW area?
If a hurricane happens, I assume the parks will be closed.
What happens to people who've come down to WDW for a week and a hurricane hits? Do the hotels close too, and if so what happens to you? I wouldn't know what to do in a situation like that. Since we're flying down there and I don't drive a car, I don't know what would happen to us. I would assume Disney people would help us figure it out but I don't want to worry about this so I'm wondering if this situation has happened before.
I really want to set my trip for September 1-10, 2013 (arriving in the morning on the 1st and then leaving in the evening on the 10th). I need to plan this far out because I can only afford to set aside a few hundred a month in my vacation fund and it will take about 17 or 18 months for me to save up enough to go.
I'm willing to take a risk on it raining a lot if a hurricane does hit the area because I bet there will be things to do indoors somewhere on rainy days and I actually love the sound of the rain so as long as I can find a place to relax by a window I'd be able to weather any storm.
