The park will reopen Tuesday September 12 with their normal advertised operating hours of 9am -7pm.

Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Co.'s (DIS) theme park and resort in Orlando, is scheduled to reopen Tuesday morning after being closed Sunday and Monday due to the threat from Hurricane Irma.

Disney Springs - 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 a.m.

Universal Orlando on Monday was inspecting its property "across our entire destination in preparation for an anticipated on-time opening tomorrow morning", the park said in a statement to USA TODAY. Special events, such as Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, will also take place.

Disney has had full-day closures of the Magic Kingdom only four other times in its history: in 1999 for Hurricane Floyd, 2004 for Hurricane Frances, 2004 for Hurricane Jeanne and previous year for Matthew.

It includes tree damage at the Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom park, flooding at Epcot, and some damage close to Cinderella's Castle, according to Time magazine.

The theme parks were shut down on Sunday as former Hurricane Irma was approaching the Orlando area.

Overnight, the park suffered from strong winds, heavy rain, and loss of power.

If you're traveling to Walt Disney World Resorts, you can stay up to date with park closures and cancellations here.

Irma has since been downgraded to a tropical storm, prompting park authorities to reopen the Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and the Hollywood Studios save for any water park attractions which will remain closed.

SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica water park are slated to open on Wednesday.
