Lately airlines seem to have more and more flight delay. Sometimes it seems like they are struggling to keep up with flight demand. And then there’s Weather delays due to storms. Once, I (Susan) was delayed 6 hours due to the Orlando International Airport flooding!

Another reason for travel delays is the heavy traffic around Disney World. While delays can happen, they can be frustrating if you’re either looking forward to the theme parks or worried about catching your flight home. According to the Orlando Police Department Twitter account, Major traffic delays are expected this morning So plan accordingly.

Why the delay?

According to Orlando Police Department, Officials are investigating a double fatal accident on Jeff Fuqua Boulevard and Semoran Boulevard. This is a route used to get to and from Orlando International Airport. Because of this, travelers should expect severe traffic delays.

Orlando police are investigating a car crash that killed two people.

We don’t have full details about the accident, but Orlando Police Department reports that some lanes are open but traffic delays continue. When a fatal accident occurs, the police must investigate what led to the tragedy.

If you fly into Orlando International Airport today, Please leave the airport earlier than usual and/or choose an alternative route, if this is possible. As you come in, make the necessary changes to today’s plans. Disney is very accommodating of meal-day reservations for delays. Just give her a call. And please stay safe on your travels.

We extend our condolences and prayers to those involved in this tragic accident.

Whatever the reason for traffic delays, most importantly, stay safe on your travels.
