Blizzard Beach is One of Disney Water Theme Parks and is a ski resort turned into water park. It features ski runs turned into slides, melted snow pools (some of the water is chilled) and slippery slopes. You can take a ski lift up to the top of Mount Gushmore, which features the world’s tallest and fastest free-falling waterslide, the Summit Plummet.
Start by racing your friend down The Downhilll Double Dipper. They will time each rider and let you know who crosses the finish line first! Then head over to Toboggan Racers where kids, teens and adults can race each other 8 wide to see who makes it to the bottom first.
Want to ride with your friends down the slides? Be sure to check out Runoff Rapids, featuring 3 unique waterslides, and Teamboat Springs, a family style raft ride down the winding river.
And if that wasn’t enough, you can also head down Snow Stormers, 3 slalom-style racing courses, and Slush Gush, a high-speed 90 foot waterslide down Mount Gushmore.
When you are ready to relax, head over to Cross Country Creek, a slow flowing stream that passes through polar caves and under misty waterfalls. There are no height restrictions on this one, but keep the little ones close at hand.
Kids under 48 inches tall can enjoy Tike’s Peak. They can play in a snow-castle fountain, pop-up water jets and kid-sized slides. And for the kids who are too big for Tikes Peak but not quite ready to tackle the bigger water slides, Disney has the Ski Patrol Training Camp. Kids can head down curvy water slides (both open and inner-tube), take a ride on a zip line or test their balance on the obstacle course.
In order to gain admission to Blizzard Beach, you will need the Water Park Fun and More Option added to your Disney World ticket. This option is an extra $55.58 per multi-day ticket. This gives you a set number of admissions into the 2 water parks, DisneyQuest, Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex or a round of golf at Oak Trail.
This option gives you an equal number of days of access on your ticket. So if you have a 7 day park ticket, you also have 7 days worth of admissions giving you a total of 14 days of fun!
If you only want to head to Blizzard Beach for one day, you can purchase a single day ticket at the gate or your resort hotel.
