Hurricane Irma has forced Walt Disney World to close for only the sixth time in the resort's 45-year history.

The resort closed Sunday and will remain that way until Monday, the company announced Friday. Hotels, however, will remain open. The aim is to reopen the park on Tuesday, according to a company spokesperson.

This is the second-straight year where the park was forced to close its gates due to weather – Hurricane Matthew had the same effect in October of 2016.

Disney’s hurricane policy fully refunds customers who purchased tickets through Disney, but doesn’t cover third-party sales, such as those from airlines, hotels and car rental companies.
