This Week in Disney: Hurricane Irma

As everyone knows by now, Hurricane Irma is barreling toward Florida and will arrive sometime over the weekend.

Walt Disney World has canceled Saturday’s Night of Joy and Sunday’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

Fort Wilderness will also close at 2pm Saturday. A complete list of Disney World closures can be found here:

Universal Orlando will close at 7pm Saturday with plans to reopen on Tuesday.

Grand Avenue at Hollywood Studios was revealed prematurely yesterday when construction crews removed the scrims that had blocked the view — which would become projectile objects in hurricane-force winds.

Our thoughts are with everyone in the path of this monster storm, particularly the cast members and employees across Florida’s service industry who are putting themselves in harm’s way to take care of all the tourists still in the area. Stay safe!!
