Florida is no stranger to major storms, it just kind of comes with the territory. One moment it’s a beautiful sunny day, the next you’re standing in a downpour trying to eat your EPCOT Food and Wine sampler.
Unfortunately, one of the elements that comes with storms is lightning. The round of storms that rolled through on August 10th, 2020 hit a little close to home.
In the attached link you’ll see the video from Fox 35 that shows Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios suffering a large lightning strike. The strike may have affected the attraction in someway (how or to what extent is not yet known).
The video shows the strike hitting above Rise of the Resistance. My Disney Experience showed the attraction as temporarily closed throughout the day on August 11, 2020.
As we search the internet for news stories and updates from the Parks, we can’t help but notice that the past few weeks have been particularly stormy. Most live streams we tune into have to deal with some sort of inclement weather.
