    ORLANDO, Fla. - Hurricane Irma’s path to Florida wasn’t enough to keep some people out of Disney World on a rainy Saturday.

    Officials at Walt Disney World announced Friday afternoon that most of its parks will close Saturday night and remain closed through Monday.

    Magic Kingdom is closing at 9 p.m., but hotels will remain open.

    The dreary weather and small crowd made the park look a little unusual for a Saturday.

    Disney World has closed five times in its nearly 46-year history, reports say.
