Yesterday Disney had announced that the whole resort would be closing early in anticipation of Hurricane Dorian. Disney has been keeping an eye on the hurricane and, while most things are still shutting down at 2 p.m. or 3 p.m., Disney did change a couple of closing times.
Instead of closing at 3 p.m. Epcot will now close at 7 p.m. and instead of closing at 3 p.m. Disney Springs will now close at 8 p.m. So if you are in Disney World and looking for things to do a little later in the day today, either head to Disney Springs or Epcot.
Here is the updated closing times:
- Magic Kingdom will close at 3 p.m.
- Epcot will close at 7 p.m.
- Hollywood Studios will close at 2 p.m.
- Animal Kingdom will close at 2 p.m.
- Disney Springs will close at 8 p.m.
- ESPN Wide World of Sports is closed.
- Blizzard Beach Water Park is closed.
- Typhoon Lagoon Water Park will close at 3 p.m.
- Winter Summerland Miniature Golf will close at 3 p.m.
- Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf will close at 3 p.m.
