Smoke From Nearby Brush Fire Impacting Disney World Parks

If you were in Walt Disney World today (especially Animal Kingdom), you undoubtedly smelled the distinct odor of wood burning. No, Disney isn’t celebrating a new barbecue festival and no, the it isn’t a new scent treatment. Apparently, there is a brush fire very close (just 4 miles) to the southern end of Disney World, which is causing a significant amount of smoke in the parks. The dark plumes of smoke from the 90% contained fire are actually very visible from the parking lot of the Animal Kingdom and some of the surrounding roads.

Here is more info about the Orlando-area fire from the local Fox affiliate, Fox 35.
