UPDATE: 09/12/17

This morning Walt Disney World opened its gates to all four theme parks to guests. Even though the parks looked immaculate, several attractions were closed today (or delayed) due to debris caused by Hurricane Irma. We walked around Magic Kingdom to see if we could identify the causes behind these delays.

Walt Disney World Railroad has trees down across the tracks.

Tom Sawyer Island is also currently closed due to Hurricane Irma’s after effects.

Jungle Cruise has also been reported as needing at least a week to remove the debris before it can be operational.


Hurricane Irma passed over Walt Disney World last night and has since turned into a Tropical Storm. Florida curfew remains in effect until 6pm today for Osceola and Orange counties. Approximately 300,000 are without power in Orange Country alone. Luckily we have not heard of any of the Walt Disney World Resorts losing power overnight.

WFTV 9 ABC News reported earlier this morning seeing a “load” of tour buses pass them by. It appears they were carrying linemen to EPCOT to help get the power back on.


Overall it seems that Walt Disney World had relatively minimal damage and the lights remain on.

Disney World is still advising their resort guests to remain in their room/building and will notify everyone once the curfew is lifted.

Let’s take a look at photos from the different resorts this morning post-Hurricane Irma. Please be patient as some pictures take a bit to load.

Caribbean Beach has some tree damage

Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter has quite a few trees down.

Contemporary Resort and Animal Kingdom Lodge Savannah both look like they fared pretty well through the storm.

Polynesian seems to have been hit worst. Trees are down but it doesn’t sound like any hit the buildings.

All-Star Music Resort has seen its share of tree debris as well.

We will continue to update this page as we receive additional information on the state of the Walt Disney World Resort this morning. Stay Tuned!
