I can't believe parks will be open during this, and I may just take advantage of the short lines tomorrow!

I don't blame BGT for shutting down. Tampa is one of the main places for issac to target. It would be a bad choice for them to not shut down, because they couldn't run anything anyway and no guests would probably show up.

I have the image in my head of showing up to the Busch Gardens Tampa parking lot on Monday, completely empty, and a la Clark Griswold announcing to my son... "First Ones here, I'll race you." Only to be told by a 5 foot tall moose that they're closed.

The Tampa Bay area is having fairly nice weather today (Monday), go figure.

Aquatica closed as well.

Aquatica is also closed today....although they decided to keep it closed at the scheduled 10am open time. In my opinion, being an employee there, they should've made that call last night and not have me drive all the way out there to then turn around and go home. C'est la vie :) Still love them though :)

The funny part is everything at WDW and Universal is a 15 minute or less wait right now. Again, everything at WDW and Universal is a 15 minute or less wait right now.

Busch Gardens has been open with worse weather. There was some rain today, and not much wind. Prevention is good though.

Wet N Wild and Blizzard Beach were also closed...as well as Aquatica and Busch...and Sea Worlds early closure.
