Disney World dodges major Hurricane Irma damage

FORECAST High clouds move in late Sunday ahead of Irma

"Walt Disney World's Theme Parks and Disney Springs will reopen tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 12 with normal, advertised operating hours".

Walt Disney World's Theme Parks were closed on Sunday and Monday due to the hurricane.

And by the looks of these photos, park employees took major precautions to preserve the magic from potential damage. But there is a lot of minimal damage - think overturned trees, broken signs, lawn chairs all over the place, and so many branches and leaves, according to Yahoo.

Fort Wilderness Campground will also remain closed until assessments of the property are completed.

Magic Kingdom: 9:00 a.m. - 7 p.m.

The park later announced that it would be closed on September 10 and 11, and staff asked people to "observe local curfews" and remain in their resort room.




Disney has had full-day closures of the Magic Kingdom only four other times in its history: in 1999 for Hurricane Floyd, 2004 for Hurricane Frances, 2004 for Hurricane Jeanne and past year for Matthew.

Our destination saw relatively minor damage overnight involving fences, trees, signage and building facades.

SeaWorld in Orlando reported it would be closed through Monday as well, indicated it was "providing support and temporary housing for animals form other zoological facilities in coastal areas expected to have greater impact".

"We decided if we're going to bake, we might as well do it at Disney", said Veann Grigajtis, who traveled with her family to the theme park from Melbourne, where they still lack power.

Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Universal Orlando Resort and more - they can do it all, and at no extra cost to you! SeaWorld and Aquatica are planning to open on Wednesday.
