Did Hurricane Irma Hit Disney World? Here's When the Park Reopens

Did Hurricane Irma Hit Disney World? Here's When the Park Reopens

Universal Studios-near Disney World-also reopened Tuesday, the park stated.

Eyewitness News editor Ashley LoFaso captured what it was like at Disney World when Irma arrived in the Orlando area early Monday. Magic Kingdom Jungle Cruise will closed due to Irma cleanup.

This two -day closing of the park is only the sixth time in history that Walt Disney World parks have closed their doors to the public since they opened 45 years ago.

Disney Springs - 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 a.m.

By the looks of it, there was no major damage done to the theme parks or resorts, but there is plenty of minimal damage (overturned trees, broken signs, strewn lawn chairs, and scattered branches and leaves) - leaving a large clean-up operation.

Disney hotels have remained open throughout the two days, luckily, so vacationers did have a place to stay while Irma passed through Florida.

The city of Orlando is under curfew until 6 p.m. Monday, reported CNN.

At Universal, Volcano Bay, Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios are open today.

"Our destination saw relatively minor damage overnight involving fences, trees, signage and building facades", Universal Orlando said in a statement on its blog Monday. However, Hurricane Irma has ripped through the Caribbean and reached Florida over the weekend, prompting the theme park to shut.

INSIDER was told that while the parks experienced high winds and rain, they did not lose power throughout the duration of the storm.

We expect SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica Orlando to reopen on Wednesday, September 13.

Universal joins Disney World in announcing its reopening tomorrow.
