Update from Disney Regarding Hurricane Irene

Hurricane Irene Update

Tuesday, Aug. 23 – 5 p.m. EDT

Disney Cruise Line

The safety of our Guests and Crew is our first priority at Disney Cruise Line® and we are monitoring Hurricane Irene very closely.  At this time, we anticipate that the current voyage of the Disney Dream will return to Port Canaveral as scheduled on Thursday, Aug. 25, 2011, with the following voyage departing as planned.

Walt Disney World Resort

The Walt Disney World® Resort is operating under normal conditions as we continue to monitor the progress and path of Hurricane Irene. Based on the storm’s current path, forecasters predict little to no impact to us beyond rain and windy conditions late Thursday and into Friday morning.

Mideast Unrest Forces Itinerary Changes

Given the continued political unrest in Egypt and the recent Travel Warning issued by the U.S. Department of State, itinerary changes have been made by the following tours:


The Egypt family vacations scheduled through the end of August 2011 have been canceled. Any clients booked should contact us for alternate destinations or refund information.


Disney is modifying the 10- and 11-night European cruise itineraries aboard the Disney Magic to include a call in Palermo, Italy, instead of a scheduled stop in Tunis. The decision was made in part due to the changing political environment in Tunis and the recent Travel Alert issued by the U.S. Department of State.

Regarding the changes, a Disney Destinations spokesperson said, “As always, our first concern is for the safety and well being of Guests. We will continue to monitor our destinations and make changes if necessary.”
