Walt Disney World is used to seeing intense storms, but recently a Guest was almost struck by lightning but got away and captured some unbelievable photos.

Many a Theme Park at the Walt Disney World Resort have seen a large amount of rain lately, and several attractions were even evacuated due to the weather conditions. It seems to be a trend that has continued globally, including in Disneyland Paris, where the Resort faced harsh temperatures and harsher storms. Both Disney Parks were left completely underwater.

But recent conditions at Walt Disney World took this to another level, giving Guests more than just the Disney experience they signed up for.

Walt Disney World recently saw massive storms accompanied by some beautiful (but scary) lightning strikes. Guests took to social media to share their captured photos from the Disney Park.

Guest Scott Campbell shared his photos on Twitter. One photo in particular shows lightning that very nearly struck the Guests as they rode the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, with more lightning strikes surrounding the spires of Space Mountain and Tron.

The storm raged over more than just the Magic Kingdom, too! Another Guest at Disney’s Hollywood Studios caught lightning surrounding the top of the Tower of Terror — a fitting sight for the Sunset Boulevard attraction.

However, perhaps in a classic Disney ending, the storm passed, and Campbell was able to share the literal calm after the storm with pictures of a breathtaking sunset.

This is by no means the first freak storm that has hit Disney World at the strangest times. Earlier this year in July, we at Disney Fanatic reported on a hail storm that hit Disney World — particularly the Magic Kingdom.

While this was certainly an experience to write home about, all of us here at Disney Fanatic can only hope that the storms blow elsewhere and Guests can enjoy their Disney experience at the “Most Magical Place on Earth” without worrying about anything else.
