Reasons for delays

Recently, it seems that airlines have increasingly Flight delays. Sometimes it seems like they are scrambling to accommodate flight requests. Then there is weather delays due to storms. Once I (Susan) was delayed for 6 hours due to Orlando International Airport flooding!

Another reason for travel delays is the heavy traffic all around Disney World. Although delays do happen, they can be frustrating when you’re eager to get to the theme parks or anxious to catch your flight home. According to the Orlando Police Twitter account, major traffic delays are expected this morning so plan accordingly.

Why the delay?

We don’t have full details of the crash, but Orlando police are reporting some lanes are open, but traffic delays continue. When there is a fatal accident, the police must investigate what caused this tragedy.

If you are flying into Orlando International Airport today, please depart earlier than usual and/or take an alternate route if possible. If you arrive, make the necessary changes to the plans today. Disney is very accommodating on the day of restaurant reservations for delays. Just give them a call. And stay safe on the go.

We send our condolences and prayers to those involved in this tragic accident.

Whatever the reason for traffic delays, first and foremost stay safe on your travels.
