Hurricane Ride Out Crew

So, its hurricane season here, and the hurricane «Irene» is coming towards Florida and might hit us on friday.

Earlier this year, I signed up for being a part of the «Hurricane Ride Out Crew» in Epcot, today I had to sign papers regarding clothes and shoes I needed for the work, which might be happening on friday if «Irene» don’t slow down.

I never seen a hurricane before, and Im a little exited about it actually.
Being a part of the ride out crew means I have to prepare the park before the storm hits us, and clean up after.
We have to move everything that might be blown away onstage and backstage, tape stuff and things that need to be done before a hurricane.

Im looking forward to see what happens on friday.

    Hello Alexander! I came across your blog recently and have enjoyed it greatly–I’m a Florida native and long-time Disney World fan, so the perspective you bring as both an employee and a foreign visitor is very interesting for me. Thanks for that!

    Nothing for us to worry about with Irene, though–usually hurricanes coming west across the Atlantic take a turn to the north before they reach Florida, and Irene looks like no exception. Here’s the site I always check for the latest update on the projected path for tropical storms: Click on Irene on the map and you’ll get the latest expected track. Looks to be far enough offshore for us that we won’t see anything but maybe some rain bands as it passes. The hurricane season still has a few months to go, though, so keep watching! 🙂

      Hey, sorry about the late answer.

      Yeah, we didn’t even feel Irene here. I just want to experience some extreme weather as well.
