Disney has confirmed that some of their employees rode out Category 5 Hurricane Dorian on Castaway Cay, the company’s private island for cruise ship passengers in the Bahamas:

Castaway Cay Update

Many of our guests have asked questions about Castaway Cay. Some of our Crew remained on the island and their care and safety is our highest priority. We are in regular contact with island leadership, who is making sure our Crew is well taken care of in our storm shelter, which is designed for these types of situations and has restrooms, power and is well stocked with food and water. Castaway Cay remains south of the more significant weather and is currently experiencing tropical storm force winds, which based on the current forecast, are expected for the next several hours before gradually diminishing. Our thoughts are with the people in areas of The Bahamas that are being impacted by this storm and we stand ready to contribute to recovery efforts.

Holy s*it. Castaway Cay was “just south of the eyewall”:

Twitter user Meg Green, wose sister is reportedly is one of the people left on the island, says Disney promised to evacuate everyone:

Disney, you have a PR problem with this.
