  • Kristen Bell Gives Live Update From Orlando Hotel After Hurricane Irma: We're 'Making the Most of a Crazy Situation'

Luckily, Bell herself was in a good place: the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort.

Hurricane Irma struck Florida this past weekend while "Frozen" star Bell was in Orlando filming her Netflix project "Like Father".

Bell also visited with residents of a senior center who had evacuated to the hotel where she was staying and joined them for Bingo.

On the other end, the unhappiest states were Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Oklahoma and West Virginia. Just looking at depression rates showed some strong indicators of how state's would fare overall.

Looks like Bell and the hotel staff are bringing plenty of moments of levity to what could have been a much more dire situation.

"We've been making the most of a insane situation!" she told Jimmy Kimmel, before praising specific employees at the resort who have forgone sleep to help guests. She gave recognition to an employee named Gary who tirelessly helped everyone throughout the entire weekend and she introduced an elderly man named John who she called her "side piece".

As she's told us through Twitter posts and pictures, she's been keeping pretty busy.

Earlier in the day, the actress posted on her own page, "Last run to the store for #irma hurricane holdover prep while bracing down in orlando- we didn't have the option to leave so here we are".

Bell then panned the camera across the room where dozens of people had gathered. She joked with Jimmy that she had to tell John he was Johnny Carson because he didn't know who Kimmel was.

Meanwhile, the hotel where Bell is hunkering down (along with around 86 other film crew members) is full of senior home evacuees and she is finding all kinds of ways to light up their evenings.
