After Hurricane Irma passed through the Walt Disney World area on September 10, all Disney theme parks and Disney Springs reopened on Tuesday, September 12.

These two revised sailings will now visit Cozumel, Mexico; George Town, Grand Cayman; and Falmouth, Jamaica. -- Disney Cruise Line's Western Caribbean sailings will continue as scheduled. The Walt Disney Company announced a commitment of $2.5 million to aid those impacted by Hurricane Irma. The funds will help the response and recovery efforts of the American Red Cross, UNICEF, Save the Children, and other nonprofits. In addition, eligible Disney employee donations to qualified organizations involved in the Hurricane Irma relief effort are being matched dollar for dollar by Disney Employee Matching Gifts: A Program of The Walt Disney Company Foundation. During Hurricane Irma, Walt Disney World and the Disney Cruise Line donated meals, provided storage for supplies and power-utility vehicles, donated bedding to shelters, and made rooms available for first responders. As the recovery from Hurricane Irma's effects continues, we are now keeping an eye on Hurricane Maria, which as of this writing is a Category 5 storm in the Caribbean. For the latest on severe weather, be sure to consult with the National Hurricane Center, The Weather Channel, and Orlando news outlets. Our thoughts remain with those affected by the recent hurricanes, not only Irma, but also Harvey, Jose, Katia and Maria.
