Guests at Disney World‘s Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios have been sharing photos of the Florida resorts on social media showing damage caused by Hurricane Irma.

The Disney parks, which were closed Sunday and Monday, opened at 9 a.m. Tuesday. The water parks will remain closed until later this week, according to a statement.

It was just the sixth shutdown in Disney World’s 45-year history, but the second one in less than a year. Hurricane Matthew also forced Disney to close the gates in October 2016.

Disney’s nearby theme park rival, Universal Studios, also closed the doors during Hurricane Irma. “Our destination saw relatively minor damage overnight involving fences, trees, signage and building facades,” reads a statement from Universal Orlando. “We are hard at work inside our parks and we can confirm an on-time opening for Tuesday, Sept 12 at 9am for Universal Studios, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay.”

Hurricane Irma has severely damaged one of the most famous airports in the world

  Hurricane Irma has severely damaged one of the most famous airports in the world On Wednesday, images from the island of St. Martin show the level of devastation caused by Hurricane Irma. Among the victims of the storm's 185 mph winds is the island's famed Princess Juliana International Airport. In the photos that have emerged from St. Martin, the airport's terminal looks to be severely damaged while at least one of the airport's jet bridges has collapsed. The runway is also covered in sand and debris. In addition, a camera located on Maho Beach at the foot of the runway shows the sheer intensity of Irma's power.

Most of Disney World has reopened after Hurricane Irma , but what can visitors expect to see? Damages look minimal for the most part, but the park isn’t exactly looking like “The Most Magical Place on Earth.”

Here ’ s What Irma Looks Like From Inside a Hurricane Shelter. The storm prompted Disney World to close early on Saturday and remain closed Sunday and Monday, marking only the fifth time that Disney World has shut down its theme parks since opening in 1971.

When Will Hurricane Maria Hit Puerto Rico? .
After getting lashed by Hurricane Irma, the Caribbean is already preparing for the next storm: Hurricane Maria. U.S. territory Puerto Rico, which saw extensive damage after Irma, is right in the middle of the storm’s projected path. Hurricane Maria is expected to make landfall on the island between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center. The entire island is also under a hurricane warning, and Maria is expected to remain “an extremely dangerous category 4 or 5 hurricane” when it reaches Puerto Rico, according to the NHC.
