The media is all a buzz with the story that Disney left cast members on on Castaway Cay during the category 5 hurricane.
I’m not sure why they were left there, but I do know there is a shelter on the island that is built to withstand the strong hurricanes. They also have power, food and water. Disney has indicated that they are speaking with management to keep tabs on the situation.
They released this statement:
“Many of our guests have asked questions about Castaway Cay. Some of our Crew remained on the island and their care and safety is our highest priority. We are in regular contact with island leadership, who is making sure our Crew is well taken care of in our storm shelter, which is designed for these types of situations and has restrooms, power and is well stocked with food and water. Castaway Cay remains south of the more significant weather and is currently experiencing tropical storm-force winds, which based on the current forecast, are expected for the next several hours before gradually diminishing. Our thoughts are with the people in areas of The Bahamas that are being impacted by this storm and we stand ready to contribute to recovery efforts.”
Let’s hope that they are all okay. I’m sure they are safer than a lot of others in the area. Keep all of those in the path of Dorian in your thoughts and prayers.
