Here are the latest impacts to the Central Florida attractions as a result of Hurricane Isaias. Impacts may change with little notice, so please check directly with the venue before visiting. This post will be updated as new information becomes available.
Disney’s Vero Beach Resort: The Indian River County government has issued a voluntary evacuation order for the barrier island on which Disney’s Vero Beach resort sits. Although we don’t yet have word on any changes to operations at Vero Beach, it’s believed that Disney Vacation Club’s Hurricane Policy is now in effect, which allows for more lenient cancellation rules. A post on the Indian River County Emergency Services webpage indicates that as of 8:00PM Friday a decision had not yet been made regarding closing bridges onto the barrier island.
Florida State Parks: The state is closing some of its state parks in anticipation of Isaias. An updated list is available on their website.
Kennedy Space Center: KSC Visitor Complex will be closed on Sunday 8/2. The visitor complex is expected to reopen on Monday 8/3. The 45th Space Wing has declared itself under HURCON3, preparing for strong winds within 48 hours.
Port Canaveral: The port is now at “Condition Yankee” in advance of the storm. Of course, there’s no real tourist traffic at the port right now given the unprecedented shutdown of the global cruise industry due to COVID-19. Jetty Park and the Exploration Tower will be closed all day Saturday and Sunday Aug 1 and 2. All camping guests must vacate by Saturday 12 noon. There will be no access to the beach or fishing pier.
