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.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments: 1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?) I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
