Disney World Hurricane Dorian

The NHC said Dorian was moving west at 7mph, with "disastrous conditions" expected crosswise over Grand Bahama later.

Disney has contacted guests with current and upcoming reservations at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Copper Creek Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Treehouse Villas at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and the Bungalows at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort to relocate them to other resorts on property and to help them plan for anticipated weather impacts.

Hurricane Dorian developed into a "calamitous" cat 5 storm on Sunday as winds of more than 180mph rattled the northernmost islands of the Bahamas, the greatest hurricane to hit the island in recent times.

We glad to report that Royal Caribbean's private island Perfect Day at CocoCay in the Bahamas has relatively come through with no major damage from Hurricane Dorian.

"Our thoughts continue to be with the people in areas of The Bahamas that are being impacted by this storm and we stand ready to contribute to recovery efforts".

"I understand your concern, as they are our co-workers".

"Life-threatening storm surges and unsafe hurricane-force winds are expected along portions of the Florida east coast through mid-week, and storm surge and hurricane warnings are in effect". There are extensive measures in place to keep crew safe.

A hurricane warning remains in effect for Grand Bahama and the Abacos Islands in the northwestern Bahamas, including Freeport, Grand Bahama. A shelter on the island houses all crew and is stocked with a plentiful supply of food and water. Why risk the lives of 97 staff members? "They had plenty of time to evacuate, but the decision was made to stay", according to the news outlet.

Castaway Cay is an unique port for Disney Cruise Line.

Hurricane Dorian hovered over the Bahamas on Monday, pummeling the islands with a fearsome Category 4 assault.

Only 55 of the 1,000 acres of the island are built on and about 60 cruise line permanent residents live there.
