Posted September 13, 2017

The park will reopen Tuesday September 12 with their normal advertised operating hours of 9am -7pm.

Disney World in Orlando, Florida is following Hurricane Irma that ripped through the state this weekend and continues to make her way into the US.

Over at Magic Kingdom, the World Famous Jungle Cruise will remain closed for the rest of the week, at least.

Disney World has reopened Tuesday, Sept. 12, after Hurricane Irma passed over Florida.

All Disney Resorts will begin normal operation September 12, 2017 with the exception of Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground and Disney's Saratoga Springs Treehouse Villas.

The theme parks could have suffered much worse damage, and as soon as the storm clouds cleared, cast members got to work cleaning everything up so all four parks - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom - could reopen today, Wednesday.
