Universal Orlando to reopen Tuesday

Universal Orlando to reopen Tuesday

With 20 million visitors previous year and 73,000 employees at any given time, Disney World is a major source of revenue for the company, region, and state.

Damages look minimal for the most part, but the park isn't exactly looking like "The Most Magical Place on Earth".

At least one of the Orlando, Florida, theme parks popular with tourists around the world has plans to reopen now that Hurricane Irma has moved out of the state. "Water Parks will remain closed tomorrow and will reopen later this week". "We hope to resume normal operations on Tuesday, September 12".

Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon will remain closed. Any existing reservations will be automatically cancelled and refunded. The Disney Springs shopping and entertainment complex also reopened today.

Universal spokesman Schroder also said: 'We can not guarantee resort amenities or access to electricity during severe weather'.

Guest Transportation will be available beginning Tuesday morning, Sept.12, 2017. Though Disney hasn't announced why, cast members chatting on social media say that the maintenance dock backstage (where the boats are held when the park is closed) has been so badly damaged the boats can't even get onto the track - along with the fact that there are many downed trees along the route.
