Southern California’s Disneyland Resort intends to shut its doors on Sunday due to the imminent threat of Tropical Storm Hilary. Universal Studios Hollywood, on the other hand, is keeping a watchful eye on the storm’s progression.

The regular closing time for Disneyland Resort has been moved up to 10 p.m. from midnight, while Disney California Adventure will be shutting down at 9 p.m., an hour earlier than its usual closing time. Additionally, the resort’s shopping and dining section, which typically operates until 1 a.m., will now wrap up by 11 p.m.

Disneyland Resort has issued a statement assuring visitors of their vigilance towards the storm, noting that they’re taking cues from the National Weather Service to make necessary adjustments. However, the resort hotels will stay operational for the guests’ convenience.

While Universal Studios Hollywood has plans to stay open, they’ve emphasized the need to constantly check the situation. They’ve reminded their visitors of their commitment to safety, suggesting they regularly check the studio’s website or call their hotline at 800-864-8377 for the latest updates.

The National Hurricane Center has warned Southern California of potential severe flooding, equating it to a year’s worth of rain in an area already grappling with drought issues.

Tropical Storm Hilary made its presence known on Sunday morning, hitting the Mexican region of Baja California. FOX Weather Center predicts heavy rainfall throughout Sunday in Southern California.

A landmark tropical storm warning has been issued, covering large swathes of the state from Los Angeles to San Diego and stretching to areas like Palm Springs. This is the first time such a warning has been given in the region.
