(RNN) – It takes more than a hurricane to keep Mickey Mouse down.

“The Happiest Place on Earth” will be up and running on Tuesday after a brief hiatus for the high winds and torrential rains brought by former Hurricane Irma.

Online videos showed some flooding in Disney’s Epcot Park and at the Grand Floridian Resort. Trees fell on the Animal Kingdom theme park.

But a Disney spokesman said the damage assessment is still in its initial stages.

It was only the sixth time in the resort’s 45-year history that severe weather has forced the theme park to close.
