As Walt Disney World recovers from Hurricane Irma, Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground has remained closed to allow for extra cleanup. This week, a rumor has been floating around online that Walt Disney World permanently closed the resort.

No need to worry – this rumor is false. Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will be back once Disney has had enough time to clear downed trees and fix leaks.

Here’s what we know about the ongoing repairs. Walt Disney World’s website says the following:

This means the resort will likely reopen sometime during the week of September 18.

In the meantime, guests with existing reservations at the resort are being relocated within Walt Disney World.

Also per the website, Hoop De Doo Musical Revue and Mickey’s Backyard BBQ have been canceled through Sunday, September 17. Any existing reservations will be canceled and refunded.

For more information, head over to the Walt Disney World website.
