Disney Water Parks
Little information has been given regarding the reopening of the Disney Water Parks.
A few months ago, we shared that Disney had planned on reopening one of their water parks on March 7, 2021. However, they had only mentioned plans to reopen one.
Today, they have confirmed Blizzard Beach will reopen! The story behind Blizzard Beach is that a legendary snowstorm in Florida prompted local opportunists to build a ski resort. When the weather returned to normal, temperatures and the snow began to melt and Blizzard Beach was born!
Blizzard Beach will reopen on March 7, 2021!
Disney has made it clear that they will continue to welcome back Guests and Cast Members in a responsible way, with a plan focused on health and well-being. More details regarding the reopening plan will be provided at a later time.
Guests can now purchase new tickets that include a Park Hopper Plus Option or Water Parks & Sports Option for admission March 7, 2021 and later. Water Park Annual Passes and 1-Day Water Park Ticket sales will resume at a later date.
The following is some information regarding water park tickets from Walt Disney World’s website:
We will automatically extend unused, unexpired 1-Day Disney Water Park tickets that were active at the time the Water Parks were closed through December 31, 2021. Not all unused, unexpired 1-Day Disney Water Park tickets have been extended yet, but such extensions should be completed by March 7, 2021. As an alternative, Guests may instead choose to cancel their ticket. To choose this option, please call (407) 939-2732. If you are unable to visit by December 31, 2021, you may apply the value of a wholly unused ticket toward the purchase of a ticket for a future date.
Water Park Annual Passes
Water Parks and Water Parks After 2 Annual Passes active at the time the Water Parks were closed will be automatically extended for the period both Water Parks were closed. Not all Water Park Annual Passes have been extended yet, but such extensions should be completed by March 7, 2021. As an alternative, water park Passholders may instead choose to cancel their pass. To choose this option, please call (407) 939-2732.
