Here's What a Sad, Empty Disney World Looked Like During Hurricane Irma

Theme park operators regroup following Irma's landfall

Disney World, Universal to reopen Tuesday after Irma sweeps through Florida

That changed Tuesday with the reopening of the parks.

Disney World in Orlando, Florida is following Hurricane Irma that ripped through the state this weekend and continues to make her way into the US.

Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom operated during the park's normal hours Tuesday.

All Disney Resorts will begin normal operation September 12, 2017 with the exception of Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground and Disney's Saratoga Springs Treehouse Villas.

Monday's ascent comes after shares plunged last week ahead of Hurricane Irma's landfall over the concern that there would be some major revenue losses if facilities suffered damages that resulted in closures.

It was just the sixth shutdown in Disney World's 45-year history, but the second one in less than a year.

New Brunswick's jobless rate rises to 7.8%
Over the year, full-time employment increased by 213,000 and 1.5% while part-time jobs increased 4.6% over the year. Compared to a year earlier, average hourly wages expanded at a faster rate than inflation to reach 1.8 per cent.

Magic Kingdom Park and the Epcot Center both opened at 9 a.m.

"Our destination saw relatively minor damage overnight involving fences, trees, signage and building facades", Universal Orlando said in a statement on its blog Monday.

Universal Studios, Universal's Islands of Adventure and Universal's Volcano Bay will reopen Tuesday at 9 a.m. More recently, the parks shuttered in 2016 during Hurricane Matthew.

The Disney theme parks closed their gates on Saturday as Hurricane Irma made her way towards them. No word from either park on when they expect to be open.

Elsewhere in Magic Kingdom, The Walt Disney World railroad is closed, due to lots of debris on the track, along with Tom Sawyer's Island...but it's okay if you didn't want to go to Tom Sawyer's Island in the first place.
