Universal Orlando Is Officially Reopening After Hurricane Irma
“Our thoughts go out to all those impacted by Hurricane Irma and we stand ready to help our community recover.
Our destination saw relatively minor damage overnight involving fences, trees, signage and building facades. We are hard at work inside our parks and we can confirm an on-time opening for Tuesday at 9 a.m. for Universal Studios Florida, Universal's Islands of Adventure and Universal's Volcano Bay. In addition, we can confirm that our Halloween Horror Nights event will begin as scheduled this Friday.”
"Walt Disney World’s Theme Parks and Disney Springs will reopen tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 12 with normal, advertised operating hours.
Special events, such as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, will also take place. Water Parks will remain closed tomorrow and will reopen later this week."
Hurricane Irma marks the first occassion that both Disney World and Universal Studios shuttered their gates for two full days due to weather.
