UPDATE: Disney World Closing Water Parks, Aerophile Balloon Ahead of Hurricane Irma

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Disney is already making some operational modifications in response to Hurricane Irma and some nasty weather that will arrive ahead of it.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park will be closed due to inclement weather on September 8th and 9th, 2017. Typhoon Lagoon has not announced a closure as of yet.

Meanwhile, at Disney Springs, the Aerophile balloon has already closed so it can be deflated ahead of the storm.

Stay tuned for further updates.
