Walt Disney World closing due to Hurricane Ian

Walt Disney World theme parks in the Orlando, Florida area will close for two days due to Hurricane Ian.

Walt Disney World will temporarily close our theme parks on Wednesday, Sept. 28 and Thursday, Sept. 29:

  • Magic Kingdom Park
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios
  • Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park (Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park is currently closed for the season.)
  • Winter Summerland Miniature Golf
  • Fantasia Gardens
  • Fairways Miniature Golf

Partially used multi-day theme park tickets with a usage window impacted by Hurricane Ian-related park closure will automatically be extended to use the remaining entitlements through any date through September 30, 2022.

When has Disney World closed?

While Disney World closures are rare, they happen occasionally.  The last time the Magic Kingdom closed was in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Disney says it will not enforce cancelation policies until further notice for dining and other experiences like Savi’s Workshop and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.

Performances of Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue have been canceled from Sept. 28-30 in light of the temporary closure of Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. Guests with pre-paid reservations will be automatically canceled and refunded.

If a hurricane warning is issued by the National Hurricane Center for the Orlando area, or for a guest's area of residence, within 7 days of thescheduled arrival date, guests may call in advance to reschedule or cancel a Walt Disney Travel Company Disney Resort Hotel Package and most room-only reservations (booked directly with Disney) without any cancelation or change fees imposed by Disney.
