The Walt Disney World Resort and Disney Springs in Florida, United States, closed down early on Saturday and continued to close through Monday to anticipate the Hurricane Irma.

The entertainment complex is scheduled to resume its operation on Thursday.

On its official website, Disney listed places that had been shut down, which include the Magic Kingdom, ESPN Wide World of Sports and Disney’s Blizzard Beach.

“Resort hotels will remain open, though services and amenities will be adjusted,” read the company's official statement.

Those who had bought tickets for special events, such as the Night of Joy at the ESPN World of Sports Complex on Saturday and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party on Sunday reportedly received full refund that could be redeemed by sending an e-mail to [email protected] by Jan. 31 next year. Further information can be found on the Disney World's website.

According to Teen Vogue, the entertainment complex had also closed down for one day last year due to Hurricane Matthew. (wir/kes)
