Posted: Updated:

Some families who braved Hurricane Matthew say they came out better than they thought they would.

A lot of families were vacationing in Disney World in Orlando, and several families say they’re doing OK.

The Estes family said they did everything they could to get back home, but they say they're happy they're safe and together.

2-year old Will is one of the reasons Sha Estes and her family decided to stay in their Orlando vacation home. She said: “The interstate was bumper to bumper. We were worried about being stuck on the interstate and it hitting or running out of gas.”

Estes and her family did everything they could to get back home to west Kentucky. They tried to get a flight out, they started to drive back, but in the end decided they didn't want to risk it. They got groceries and stayed together through the storm. She says: “All our family is wanting us to hurry up and get back home.”

Despite the rain and wind picking up at points in the day, Estes and her family say the storm was not as bad as they were expecting. And, with a memorable Disney vacation, the Estes family is ready to come back home.
