Universal Orlando Is Officially Reopening After Hurricane Irma

That changed Tuesday with the reopening of the parks.

For only the fifth time in history, Disney World closed for two days Sunday and Monday as Hurricane Irma rolled over Florida.

Orlando was spared the full wrath of Hurricane Irma, with the local theme parks only taking relatively minor damage.

An unregistered luxury auto was also seized on Friday from the Dera during the sanitisation exercise, according to officials. The premises of the Dera, houses educational institutions, markets, a hospital, stadium, recreational areas and houses.

Signs posted inside its resorts on Monday afternoon indicated that the theme parks would be back open Tuesday at 9 a.m. but the Disney water parks would remain closed.

"We are beginning an initial assessment of our property", a Disney World spokeswoman told the Los Angeles Times on Monday morning.

Ahead of the weather forecasts of Hurricane Irma, Walt Disney World Resort made the decision to close in the interest of their visitor's safety.

Starting pitcher Chase Anderson contributed two runs of his own, while Jesus Aguilar added an RBI in the win for the Brew Crew. Their confidence and resilience has been strong all season, and there's no reason to believe that will change any time soon.

Disney World has escaped major damage from hurricanes over the years, but its cruise ships and private island, Castaway Cay, were not as lucky in 2012 when they were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. The Magic Kingdom was also closed for part of the day October 24, 2005 for Hurricane Wilma.

Epcot: 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Sea World in Orlando and Busch Gardens amusement park in Tampa Bay will remain closed until at least 13 September in order to clean up debris from the storm. No word from either park on when they expect to be open. However, Hurricane Irma has ripped through the Caribbean and reached Florida over the weekend, prompting the theme park to shut. It's unclear when Discovery Cove will be reopened, according to the Sentinel.
