Blizzard Beach, known for such water attractions as Summit Plummet and Cross Country Creek, is a popular water park located on property at Walt Disney World resort.

As the legend goes, Disney’s Blizzard Beach was once Florida’s first ski-resort after a blizzard winter storm hit Walt Disney World Resort. But, before the skiers could strap on their boots, sunny Florida weather returned and powdery snow quickly turned to slippery slush. Bobsled and toboggan runs became downhill waterslides; a creek of melted mountain snow became a relaxing tube ride; and the chairlift now carries swimmers instead of skiers.

Full of plenty of icy architecture and water-ful attractions, the water park’s snowy atmosphere amid the warm temperatures of Florida continues to bring guests back to the winter wonderland year after year.

The water park recently reopened with new Frozen elements. The new Frozen features are part of the kid-sized thrills of Tike’s Peak that is popular among young guests who will delight in the statuettes of Olaf and his pals in the warm wading pool, as well as Anna and Elsa’s igloo castle.

Blizzard Beach will close Thursday, November 17 and Friday, November 18 because of the forecasted weather. Temperatures are supposed to get down to the 40s and lows are expected to stay in the 60s. Brr! That is too cold for a water park!

While it may be a bit cool for water park attractions, I’m sure the cold front will be welcomed by those visiting the theme parks this week!

With cooler temperatures, Disney is closing Blizzard Beach on November 17 and 18, 2022.
