Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando both took the unusual measure to close the parks for the weekend ahead of the impending Hurricane Irma, while they put all their resources into keeping guests safe who are unable to leave the resorts.
WDW parks will be closing at staggered times to allow easier transportation back to the resorts. All Universal parks will close at 7pm.
More details on the specific closures can be found at the DIS.
To all our friends who are at WDW and the surrounding areas, stay safe!
