Jungle Cruise

Hurricane Irma might be gone from Disney World but her after effects are still with us. Disney has been hard at work restoring its grounds and has re-opened all four parks this morning for guests.

BlogMickey is reporting that the Jungle Cruise will still need more work before taking passengers aboard. Cast Members at the Magic Kingdom are stating that the attraction will remain closed for “at least a week”. It appears that the damage incurred from the hurricane included downed trees which prevents boats from passing even the first river bend.  Sources online are also reporting that the Walt Disney World Railroad is not running this morning.

Animal Kingdom also has a handful of attractions that will be operating on reduced hours.  Expedition Everest, Kilimanjaro Safaris, and Wild Africa Trek will have delayed openings and aren’t expected to be running until later in the day. Kali River Rapids, Planet Watch and the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail will remain closed throughout the day.


Stay tuned for more details as we get them!
