Crowds at the Magic Kingdom were incredibly light, with many attractions having little or no wait. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was a “walk on.”

While it wasn’t evident to most guests, Cast Members had begun with some preparations for the upcoming storm.

Some signs and benches have been tied down to prevent them from blowing away. According to Cast Members, trash cans will be filled with water to prevent them from moving.

Stores have pallets of water near the register for guests who need to stock up.

While the park was operating as normal, rains did cause the Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire stage show in front of Cinderella Castle to be cut short.
