As Hurricane Matthew bears down on Florida, the Walt Disney World resort in Orlando will be closing down for just the fourth time ever.

“Based on the most recent forecasts for Hurricane Matthew, Walt Disney World theme parks, water parks, Disney Springs, miniature golf courses and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex will all be closed today by 5 p.m., and will remain closed through Friday, Oct. 7,” a Walt Disney World spokeswoman said.

Walt Disney World closed its gates three times in the past, all for hurricanes: Sept. 15, 1999, for Hurricane Floyd; Sept. 4 and 5, 1999, for Hurricane Frances and Sept. 26, 2004, for Hurricane Jeanne, CNBC reported.
