Intense Photos Show Irma’s Devastation Of The Happiest Place On Earth

The happiest place on Earth rarely closes its doors, but the threat of Hurricane Irma forced Disney World to closeSunday and Monday, as much of Florida prepared to escape the devastating storm.

Hurricane Irma marks just the sixth time Disney World has closed its gates in 45 years of operation. But when the park finally opened its doors Tuesday morning, park goers were able to come face-to-face with the destruction caused by the storm.

While some portions of the park remain closed for cleanup, guests have been flooding social media with photos of Irma’s aftermath.

Just 24 hours after Irma hit, Cinderella’s castle remained relatively unharmed, but the same can’t be said for the rest of the park.
