Disney World' campfires dark amid Orange County restrictions

Disney World' campfires dark amid Orange County restrictions

Walt Disney World has extinguished all outdoor fire activities as lingering dry conditions continue in the Central Florida area.

Included in the ban, which kicks in amid several brush fires in the region, are campsites and cabin-side fires at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground.

Disney World says it is following the local fire restrictions currently in place. On Thursday, Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs instituted a burn band within unincorporated and incorporated parts of the county, unless a written permit is first obtained.

“As a region, we are deeply aware of the threats posed by the weather, and our extremely dry conditions,” Jacobs said.

Among the other Disney World resorts with campfires are Animal Kingdom Lodge, the Yacht & Beach Club resorts, Disney’s BoardWalk Inn and Villas, Caribbean Beach, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Coronado Springs, the Grand Floridian, Old Key West, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Port Orleans, Saratoga Springs and assorted, related Disney Vacation Club sites.

Some of the resorts put on marshmallow roasts and other activities, such as movies, nearby. Those will continue as planned, the resort said.
