Orlando International Airport Closing Monday 2nd September

So MCO is closing at 06:00 American time on Monday due to Hurricane Dorian. Im supposed to be flying in on Monday, so this isnt happening now. Its 4am and all I can do is lie here and wonder what will happen. I called on Thursday and they were doubtful Id be able to change my dates due to capacity and apparently a 1 Bed Villa in OKW is hot commodity. Im staying 3 weeks so may have to spend the last few days at a different resort, hoping they only have a bungalow at the Poly available 😂.
Ive just duplicated ADRs made for my first 4 days, and tagged them on to the end. Cant do this with my FPs though unfortunately. I will have lost my Bubble seats too (Dibbers Row both ways).
Oh well, worse things can happen, I think its the unknown that makes it worse? Plus Ive booked eyelashes, nails and a spray tan at 9am which is exactly when WDTC open to phone and sort this out. Plus Ill now be going to work on Monday with skin a dark shade of mahogany.
Hope everyone effected gets their flights and stay sorted, and if you are already in Disney enjoy the storm, try not to worry, when you are staying on site they look after you really well. And stay in the park as long as possible the day before, most Americans will leave the area so that the parks are empty. In 2017 before Irma we had Epcot to ourselves and did Soarin 4 times in a row, it was great!
Stay safe!

I was just going to post this... we are supposed to fly home Monday evening, I have no idea what will happen, will have to contact virgin in morning as they have not been in touch at all, found this out myself! Their website says they will get in touch directly when they have plans in place, but they were supposed to email me this afternoon with an update and didn't.

Hope you get sorted, its a shame because you might end up with an extra few days but its not as if you can do fun stuff! Also hope you dont spend a lot of your holiday on the phone to them trying to sort it out, Holiday time is sacred! Good luck! Im also a Laura!

@howley, it may be worth contacting Disney about the FPs. On an American site someone mentioned that they spoke to Disney when their trip was postponed and their FPs were moved to an alternative date.

To be fair to virgin they wouldn't have been aware of the airport closing as the decision wasn't,made until about 9pm our time

Thanks I will...just need to wait until 9am when I can speak to someone!
Im worried because one year we had to switch from WL to AKL and every single FP was wiped and they couldnt get them back. It was 2014 though so things may have improved since then and its definately worth a try.
