Central Florida attractions are preparing for Hurricane Ian, by closing early in some cases. Others are simply putting plans in place.

Disney’s four theme parks and Disney Springs are still open at this time. 

But officials with the company have released statements saying that they’re closely watching the weather and are prepared to make adjustments accordingly. 

Other popular theme parks like SeaWorld, Universal Orlando Resort, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park, Legoland and Peppa Pig theme park will close Wednesday and Thursday.

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will close Thursday. 

Accommodations like Disney’s Wilderness Campground will close Wednesday through Friday.  

Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay has already shut down ahead of the storm.
