Have you heard the news? Disney World Confirmed a March 2021 Re-Opening Date For Blizzard Beach!
Blizzard Beach is a ski resort, right in Florida! However, now a former Ski resort that has melted. Guests will still find hints of snow left behind, contrasting the landscape and palm trees. Plus, ride the ski lift and listen to Christmas music anytime of year.
Today, we have 5 reasons you need to visit Blizzard Beach!
1. There are 2 Children’s Areas
Tike’s Peak is exclusively for guests 48″ and shorter. Little ones will love the miniature snow-banked slides, side-by-side downhill slides, their own mini inner-tube ride and chutes tunneling through the snow.
Ski Patrol Training Camp is another area little ones can enjoy. Test your balance on the Thin Ice Training Course. Guests under 5ft’ enjoy Fahrenheit Drops, a zip line attraction. There are also slides, Frozen Pipe Springs is an enclosed slide, Cool Runners is a tube slide and Snow Falls is a straight-down slide.
2. The Lazy River is 3,000 feet long
At Blizzard Beach guests can enjoy a relaxing float down Cross Country Creek, a 3,000 foot long lazy river! The 7 entry points are found around the park. Contrasting, Castaway Creek at Typhoon Lagoon (Disney Worlds other water park) is a 2,000 foot long lazy river.
3. The rides!
If you have a thrill seeker in the group, head to Summit Plummet, which drops guests nearly 120-feet vertically. This attraction is among the fastest and tallest freefall body slides world wide. Guests must be 48″ or taller to ride.
For a fun family ride, Teamboat Springs holds 4-6 guests on the raft. Guests will enjoy a 1200 foot long ride of turning and twisting fun.
Love friendly competition? The Downhill Double Dipper are 2 enclosed slides side by side, race against a friend or family member to the finish line, down this 50 feet ride. Guests must be 48″ or taller. Plus, more!
4. The Food Options are plentiful
Blizzard Beach offers guests 9 eatery options to refuel (whereas Typhoon Lagoon has 6). May we suggest the loaded nachos from Frostbite Freddy’s Frozen Freshments. For a sweet treat a stop at Mini Donuts is a must paired with your choice of dipping sauce (choose from Chocolate, Raspberry, White Chocolate), order with a Frozen lemonade. Kids will love lunch at Lottawatta Lodge, the kids meals come in a sand pail!
5. Ride a Chairlift
Guests 32″ or taller can ride a unique feature of this waterpark, the colorful chairlift! A chairlift is a staple of any ski resort after all. Enjoy a relaxing, and shaded, ride in the sky with great views as you ride to the top of Mount Gushmore. This slow-moving ride is also how guests can easily access Summit Plummet, Sluch Gusher and Teamboat Springs.
