Here Is What Will Happen To Disney World During Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma has been causing quite a stir in Florida.

Florida might not be the best place to stay during the hurricane.

Walt Disney World previously planned to stay open during the storm, but plans have changed now.

They recently announced on Friday that they’d be closing the parks this weekend due to Hurricane Irma. Since things might not be so well while the hurricane visits Orlando and central Florida, it was the safe thing to do.


The company statement said that “The Most Magical Place on Earth” wasn’t supposed to shut down during the hurricane but the situation has changed now. Some shop points will be closed from Friday until Saturday.

Resorts will stay open, as the company stated:

“Based on the latest forecasts for Hurricane Irma and keeping safety top of mind, Walt Disney World Resort will be closing early on Saturday,”

“Resort hotels will remain open.” 

Tickets and meal bookings will be refunded, and Disney will re-open on Tuesday morning.
