There have been a lot of schedule changes and closures due to Hurricane Ian impacting Central Florida. We now have details on when you can expect to see the reopening timeline for the resorts that had to close due to the hurricane.
Walt Disney World ceased all normal park operations along with closing Disney Springs on Wednesday September 28th and Thursday September 29th due to Hurricane Ian moving through Central Florida. They have begun a phased reopening today.
This phased reopening is offering exclusive park time to guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel! They are getting two hours of park time before offsite guests allowed to enter today!
I (Heather) wish a perk like this would stay, but unfortunately, it’s only for today. Read HERE for all the adjusted park hours today.
When Hurricane Ian was approaching, Disney made the decision to close some of their hotels. Guests staying at these hotels were given other accomodations.
Walt Disney World closed the following Resorts on Wednesday, September 28th: Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Copper Creek, Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, and the Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. For a full list of the closures click HERE.
Guests that were in these accommodations had to be out of the resort by 8 a.m. on Wednesday September 28th. When Disney announced the closure, these resorts were listed as closed at least through Friday, September 30th. We now have an updated timeline for these resorts.
Reopening Timeline For Closed Resorts
If you visit Disney’s website you find the following timeline of the closed resorts:
- Copper Creek Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and the Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort are temporarily closed through Friday, Sept. 30 due to the weather.
- Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa will be closed until Monday, Oct. 3
- Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground (including Hoop Dee Doo) will remain temporarily closed at this time.
Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground (including Hoop Dee Doo) remains temporarily closed with no reopening date at this time.
Disney will be reaching out to Guests that have current and upcoming reservations at these hotels. Hopefully The Fort will not be closed for too much longer. We pray for all that have been and will be affected by Hurricane Ian.
