Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort Resume Normal Operations Today

Disney has sent out a release to travel agents, assuring them that the parks will open normally this week.

Walt Disney World in Orlando reopened its doors Tuesday, welcoming tourists and locals still without power and air conditioning two days after Hurricane Irma battered Florida. All three theme parks said they never lost power.

If your Walt Disney World vacation was put on hold by Irma, not to worry, all four parks and Disney Springs are back in action today, though water parks Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach won't reopen until later this week. Special events, such as Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, will also take place.

Ahead of the weather forecasts of Hurricane Irma, Walt Disney World Resort made the decision to close in the interest of their visitor's safety.

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have battered Comcast. "Resort hotels will remain open, though services and amenities will be adjusted".
