Walt Disney World will be open Saturday, but with "modifed hours".
The company released details of all closures and entertainment adjustments on its website.
Walt Disney World is closing its doors beginning Saturday through Monday due to Hurricane Irma's threat. It's unclear when exactly Grand Avenue was planned to open, but it's pretty clear that it was supposed to remain behind that wall for a little while yet.
Universal Orlando will close its theme parks Sunday and Monday and expects to be back in operation Tuesday, the company said. "We will provide regular updates to our guests on all operational changes".
"The Most Magical Place on Earth" will close early on Saturday and remain closed through Monday.
There will be staggered closings at the various theme parks on Saturday. Smaller animals like baby manatees, otters, and birds have been relocated to more secure enclosures.
The National Hurricane Center's latest forecast track has Irma passing over the Orlando area Monday morning.
The Saturday, September 9 Fantasmic! and Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular performances are canceled. I'm adding this to the story: Since opening in 1971, the park has only been closed four other times, all in anticipation of hurricanes.
USA Today reported that every cruise scheduled to leave Florida on Friday has been canceled.
