Since even before Hurricane Irma struck, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground at the Walt Disney World Resort has been closed for the safety of guests, and now for the clean up of the area. For whatever reason, there are fake-news articles plastered all over the Internet claiming the Resort will never reopen. Almost needless to say, the resort will indeed reopen, likely next week according to Disney cast members.

As of right now, Disney is eyeing Monday for the reopening of the Resort and Campground area but has yet to make any statement on a re-opening date.

Fort Wilderness isn’t the only Walt Disney World offering still closed thanks to storm damage, with Typhoon Lagoon, the Walt Disney World Railroad, Kali River Rapids, and The Jungle Cruise still shuttered as of this story’s publication.
