Disney leads Central Florida theme parks reopening this afternoon post-Nicole
The Happiest Place on Earth closed early yesterday ahead of Tropical Storm Nicole.
Walt Disney World will reopen this afternoon using a staggered approach.
All four theme parks will welcome back residents and visitors, as the eye of the storm passed over the Osceola County area leaving it mostly unscathed earlier in the day.
Here's the reopening schedule:
- Magic Kingdom Park: Noon to 6:00 PM (Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is scheduled for 7:00 PM to midnight.)
- EPCOT: 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park: 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM
- Disney’s Hollywood Studios: 2:00 PM to 10:00 PM (Fantasmic! will not be presented on Thursday, November 10.)
Transportation to the parks will start running a half hour before each individual park reopens.
Disney water parks and mini-golf locations will remain closed Thursday. For more updates, follow @waltdisneyworld and @disneyparks.
Universal is also supposed to reopen its parks in a staggered approach today.
