Disneyland Resort closed at 10 p.m. Sunday, instead of 12 a.m and Disney California Adventure closed at 9 p.m. instead of 10 p.m., the park confirmed. The park’s dining and shopping area, that usually closes at 1 a.m., closed at 11 p.m.
Disneyland’s three hotels did remain open during the closure.
Similar to Disneyland Resort, many other theme parks in Southern California also saw closure due to the storm.

Universal Studios Hollywood opened at 8 a.m. on Sunday and planned to remain open until 10 p.m.. CityWalk also planned to maintain their standard operating hours as well during the storm.
The storm was originally a Category 4 hurricane. However, it slowed down as it approached Southern California. While making land the storm flooded roads and knocked out power for some.
