Moving ahead although cautiously, Blizzard Beach reopened on Sunday, March 7, welcoming guests back for some wintery-themed, watery fun at the melting ski resort water park. One of two water parks at Walt Disney World Resort, it was very exciting to see this park finally be able to come back to life, with rushing water, waves, amazing food and relaxing under the palm trees.
Disney Water Park fans celebrated the reopening by enjoying their favorite attractions such as Summit Plummet, Teamboat Springs and Cross Country Creek, one of the country’s longest lazy rivers. Guests also sipped on tropical beverages from Blizzard Beach’s own full-service beach bar, Polar Pub and munched on delicious menu items, including a plant-based Bratwurst Sandwich. Dining at Disney’s Blizzard Beach was made easier for guests with the introduction of mobile ordering at Lottawata Lodge, AvaLunch and Warming Hut. The mobile order service is available in the My Disney Experience app and allows guests to order, pay for and pick up their food when it’s ready.
Guests of all ages took advantage of reopening day to relax and spend time together in the park’s unique family spaces such as Tike’s Peak for preschoolers and Ski Patrol Training Camp for older children and tweens.
Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is operating in alignment with the health and safety measures implemented throughout Walt Disney World Resort such as enhanced cleaning, temperature checks and physical distancing. Guests (ages 2 and up) and cast members will also be required to wear face coverings while visiting Blizzard Beach. Guests may remove masks while traveling to the water slides but masks will not be permitted in the water or on the attractions. Masks are required at indoor areas, eating establishments, etc under the same guidelines outlined at the parks.
