The Essential Guide To Disney’s Blizzard Beach Resort

Stop us if you’ve heard this one already, but Central Florida is hot, ya’ll. It can get so hot and humid that merely stepping out of the safety of the air conditioning into the blistering sunshine for a few minutes can result in a sticky sheen, making you feel like you put your clothes on too soon before fully drying after a shower. The antidote? Pretending you’re flying down a snowy toboggan run and feeling the chilly rush of ‘melting snow’ while visiting Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, one of Disney’s two water parks. 

Disney Blizzard Beach – like its sister park, Typhoon Lagoon – is filled with immersive storytelling and theming, thrilling water slides, and plenty of opportunities for refreshing relaxation and escaping the Florida heat. It is also, as you can imagine, incredibly popular. So, if you’re thinking of cooling off at Blizzard Beach in Florida on your next Disney World vacation, we’re here to help. Read on for everything you need to know about Blizzard Beach at Disney World, from tickets and hours to attractions and dining and everywhere in between. 

Make a Splash at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park

Like everywhere at Walt Disney World, Blizzard Beach is positively covered with cheeky, transporting details and comes with a backstory to match. As the story goes, a freak blizzard once blew into town on the land where Blizzard Beach now sits. As inches of snow carpeted the area, some enterprising business people decided they should capitalize on the unexpected snowfall and build a ski resort. They obviously had one heckuva construction team because soon enough, the ski resort was complete and ready for business. That is, until that famous Florida sunshine returned, turning the ski resort into a dripping mess. So, just how did these would-be ski slope operators make lemonade out of lemons, or perhaps, snow cones out of (melting) snow? Well, they turned it into a water park, of course! 

Now, while we could debate the finer points of whether erecting a ski resort in a state notorious for its year-round warm weather is good business practice, you’ve gotta admit that it makes for a surprising theme and an undeniably fun experience. There are a lot of details to appreciate here. While some are obvious – like the alpine architecture, pine trees standing next to palm trees, water slides based on winter sports, and the perpetual ‘snow’ blanketing the park – others, like the cold water dripping from the ‘melting snow and ice’ as you float through the ice cave on Cross Country Creek – are more blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments. 

In short, if you’re spending several days in the Orlando area and have some time in your schedule, not only is a visit to Blizzard Beach Disney World the perfect reprieve from Orlando’s oppressive heat, it’s also a great way to experience some Disney magic of a different kind. 

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park COVID-19 Guidelines

We are pleased to say that after being closed since March 2020, Disney Blizzard Beach is back open for business. The water park reopened on March 7, 2021 with a few changes in tow due to COVID-19. The sale of new Water Park Annual Passes is currently suspended. As with the other Disney parks, capacity is limited to accommodate social distancing requirements. Unlike at the theme parks, however, an advance reservation is not required to visit Disney’s coolest water park.

Face masks, in contrast, are required for all guests aged 2 or older. According to Disney, face masks must be worn “at the park entrance and exit, retail areas, and food and beverage ordering areas.” Additionally, “face coverings will not be permitted while experiencing water slides or in the water.” Concluding, “you may also remove your face covering while actively eating or drinking, but you must be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing.”

We don’t know about you, but we are happy to hear that face masks will not be required while riding slides or enjoying other water attractions. Not only are wet face masks considerably less effective than dry ones, they also sound like they would be incredibly unenjoyable to wear. 

For those staying at most of the Disney resorts, getting to Blizzard Beach is a little bit more complicated than normal due to a limited number of buses. So, unless you’re staying at Shades of Green, Disney’s Coronado Springs, or one of the resorts in the Disney Springs area, you’ll most likely need to plan on taking the bus to Animal Kingdom first, then getting on a different bus to Blizzard Beach or your hotel from there. We do anticipate, however, that more buses will be added as the pandemic recedes. 

In addition to these changes, you can also expect some other basic health and safety measures to be present including social distancing markers, plexiglass dividers, mobile ordering, and contactless payment methods. Aside from all that, a trip to Blizzard Beach during the pandemic will feel pretty similar to how things were pre-COVID. 

If you’re anything like us, you can’t wait to visit. So, with no further ado, let’s get to talking about everything you’ll need to know for your Blizzard Beach visit. 

Getting to Disney Blizzard Beach Water Park in Florida

Disney’s Blizzard Beach is typically open daily for much of the year. Yup, even during the wintertime. Of course, Disney will close the park for a day or two at a time in the event of a cold snap, but that doesn’t happen frequently. However, it will close for a few months from time to time to allow for refurbishments. During this time, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park will usually be open instead.  Currently, Blizzard Beach is open from 11am to 6pm. Keep in mind that on the busiest (re: warmest) days, the park tends to reach capacity in the early afternoon, so be sure to plan your visit accordingly. 

Blizzard Beach is located between the Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios theme parks near the Coronado Springs Resort and All-Star Resorts. Parking is free at Disney’s water parks. And as there is no guard shack at the entrance to the park, guests are free to arrive as early as they want. This is great for those who want to beat the crowds to the water slides and the best shaded seating and skip the lines.

For those visiting Blizzard Beach who are staying at a Disney resort, buses are available between your resort and the water park. Although, if you do have a car, we recommend driving instead as parking is free. Plus, you’ll be glad you won’t have to sit in damp clothes on a cold bus once it comes time to leave.

Blizzard Beach Tickets & Prices

Guests wanting Blizzard Beach tickets have a variety of options:

1-Day Water Park Tickets to Blizzard Beach

1-Day Blizzard Beach Tickets with Blockout Dates cost $61.77 for children ages 3-9 and $68.16 for adults. A 1-Day Water Park Ticket to Blizzard Beach without blockout dates costs $67.10 per child and $73.49 per adult. Tax is included for all.   

This is a great option if you only have time to visit one of the Disney water parks during your trip. For those with more time and wanting to visit more, we highly recommend opting for one of the options below.  

Ticket with Water Park and Sports Option

Previously called Water Park Fun & More, tickets with the Water Park and Sports Option added on start out at $70 more on top of the base ticket price, with the total price fluctuating depending on what day you choose to visit a theme park. This option works well for those who are only planning on going to one theme park a day and will still have time left over at Disney to do other things. 

Two Walt Disney World FastPass+ Cards

With this ticket, guests receive additional entries to either one of the water parks or other sports-related attractions. For each of the days on a ticket, there will be an equal number of entries into one of the attractions. For example, guests with 5-day park tickets will also receive 5 admissions to a water park or other sporty attraction. You’re free to use these entries however you want, meaning you could go to Blizzard Beach all 5 times or you could go to Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon, the NBA Experience, Winter Summerland Miniature Golf, and Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course. Attractions included in the Water Park and Sports Option include:

  • Blizzard Beach Water Park
  • Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
  • NBA Experience
  • ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
  • Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course – Golfing & FootGolf
  • Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course and 
  • Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course

Park Hopper Plus

Park Hopper Plus tickets are similar to the Water Park and Sports Option above, but they also include park hopping. These start out at $85 more over the base ticket. Given that that’s only $15 more than the Water Park and Sports Option, we think this is a fantastic deal, as it allows you the flexibility to go to as many parks as you can fit into a day. 

Annual Passes

For those looking for an annual pass option, water park admission is included in the price of the Platinum Plus Annual Pass. Water Park Annual Passes are available for $148.04 including tax and allow entry into both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach at any time. The Water Parks After 2 Annual Pass is also available for Florida residents only.

Disney Blizzard Beach Rides, Slides & Attractions

Race slides down a hill

Now that we’ve taken of the essentials, let’s get to the fun part: all those Blizzard Beach water slides. When it comes to Blizzard Beach attractions, its strength is definitely its slides – particularly the body and mat slides – unlike Typhoon Lagoon, which is more balanced in its attractions. This is something to keep in mind when deciding whether you’d like to visit Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon. With that being said, let’s take a look at all the different Blizzard Beach rides and slides. 

Chairlift

Height Requirement: At least 32” (81cm)

Tips: Lines at the Chairlift can get long, especially in the middle of the day. To skip most of the crowds, we suggest riding right away in the morning or closer to park close. 

No ski resort is complete without a chairlift whisking people away to the top of the mountain, and Blizzard Beach is no different. Save some steps on your hike to the top of the Green Slope by hitching a ride – as long as you’re tall enough. 

Cross Country Creek

Height Requirement: Any height

Type: Lazy River

Tips: Plop into Cross Country Creek any time the lines for the waterslides get long. 

We don’t know about you, but we love a good lazy river. They’re always a relaxing break from walking up stairs and scraping your knees in the wave pool. Cross Country Creek runs for 3,000 feet and is sprinkled with rivulets of cold ‘melting snow’, making this ride extra refreshing. 

Downhill Double Dipper

Height Requirement: At least 48” (122cm)

Type: Single Rider Tube Slide

Tips: Much of this tube slide is enclosed. As it’s meant for one person, that tube can feel pretty small. We recommend giving this one a pass if you’re prone to claustrophobia. 

Similar to downhill skiing, the Downhill Double Dipper has guests enjoying in a friendly competition to see who can get to the bottom of these 50-foot waterslides the fastest. This ride is short but fast and almost completely in the dark. 

Snow shack with signage

Melt-Away Bay

Height Requirement: Any height

Type: Wave Pool

Tips: Slip into Melt-Away Bay any time the lines for the waterslides get long. 

Some wave pools, like the one over at Typhoon Lagoon, can be more than a little intimidating. That isn’t the case at Melt-Away Bay. This 1-acre wave pool features gentler rolling waves, making this an enjoyable option for the whole family. 

Runoff Rapids

Height Requirement: Any height

Type: Single Rider Tube Slide

Tips: Skip the middle slide if you’re not a fan of enclosed spaces.

Float down these three different waterslides from the heights of Mount Gushmore on an inner-tube. Each of these slides are unique with plenty of twists, turns, and drops, so feel free to ride each one. The outer two slides are open while the center slide is covered.  

Ski Patrol Training Camp

Height Requirement: Any height

Type: Water Play Area

Tips: Snag one of the chairs surrounding the Ski Patrol Training Camp to kick back and relax while your tween plays.

Although guests of any height are welcome to play here, the ropes course and other activities here are especially fun for pre-teens and older kids. There are also some smaller slides here that are good starters for those who are quite sure they’re ready for the big boys just yet. 

Slush Gusher

Height Requirement: At least 48” (122cm)

Type: Body Slide

Tips: Thinking of braving Summit Plummet but not sure if you can handle it? Ride its sister slide Slush Gusher first. 

Think of Slush Gusher as Summit Plummet with training wheels. While the three drops help make Slush Gusher less intense, this 90-foot-long body slide is still very tall and fast. This is one of the most popular slides in the park, so be sure to ride first thing in the morning if it’s on your must-ride list. 

Snow Stormers

Height Requirement: Any height

Type: Mat Slide

Tips: Each of these 3 slides are slightly different. If you have time, ride all 3 to see which you like best.

It’s slalom time! Race against three other riders as you zigzag down the mountain on your stomach on a toboggan-like mat. Each of these slides are open, and are a zippy ride the whole way down.

Summit Plummet

Height Requirement: At least 48” (122cm)

Type: Body Slide

Tips: Catch the action – and keep your feet on solid ground – from one of the benches near the end of the slide. 

Summit Plummet is a rush, both literally and figuratively. With a near-vertical, 120-foot drop and a bird’s eye view of Blizzard Beach, Summit Plummet is also one of the world’s tallest and fastest freefall body slides. There is also seating located around the bottom of the slide for those who’d like to watch but prefer to stay dry. 

Teamboat Springs

Height Requirement: Any height

Type: Whitewater Raft Ride

Tips: Lines here never get too long, so feel free to wedge this into your day at any time. 

Hop into a raft for this family-friendly trip down Mount Gushmore. Stretching 1,200 feet, Teamboat Springs is one of the longest group raft rides in the world. Groups of up to 6 people can ride together, so if your group is on the small side, you may be placed with another group.

Tike’s Peak

Height Requirement: Under 48” (122cm)

Type: Water Play Area

Tips: Bring your kiddo here at the beginning of the day or any time they need to build up their confidence in the water. 

Little ones can enjoy pint-sized waterslides and a number of aquatic activities at this kid-friendly water play area. This shallow area is perfect for both individual and supervised exploring. 

Toboggan Racers

Height Requirement: Any height

Type: Mat Slide

Tips: Lines here move pretty fast, so plan on visiting whenever it fits in your schedule. 

Dash down the hillside belly-first on your toboggan-like mat on this 8-lane body slide. Lifeguards will let you know when the race starts, so don’t be afraid to let your competitive spirit show. 

Winter Summerland Miniature Golf

Although it’s not technically an attraction per se at Blizzard Beach, mini golf course Winter Summerland is a must-do when you’re over in this neck of the Disney World woods. With the festive winter course and whimsical holes featuring Santa and his elves on vacation in the tropics on the summer course, Winter Summerland is yet another piece of creative Disney theming that shouldn’t be missed. Opening earlier and closing later than Blizzard Beach, Winter Summerland Mini Golf is a fun bookend to your Blizzard Beach visit. Tickets cost $12 for children and $14 for adults.

Blizzard Beach Strategy Recommendations

As you already know, we are huge supporters of arriving at park open. That is still the case here at Blizzard Beach. Not only does arriving when the park opens help cut down on lines when waiting for attractions, it also allows you to scope out and claim the best pool chairs before anyone else does. 

In general, if you arrive at opening time, the first thing you should upon walking through those doors is snagging some chairs for your group. Shaded seats and those surrounding Melt-Away Bay get claimed the fastest, so this is the first thing you need to accomplish if you’re picky about your home base for the day. There is also a good amount of shaded seating over by the Warming Hut. This is a good spot to head towards because chairs here don’t get taken as fast as this is further into the park. Of course,you could also include renting a Polar Patio or a Lodge Umbrella (more on those in a bit). Whatever you do, make sure you get a place. Read on to see our top recommended places for chairs and a map.

Once you’ve grabbed a place to sit, we suggest you start checking waterslides off your to-do list. Once you’ve done those, spend the rest of your day in the lazy river or the wave pool. In the event that you choose to arrive closer to mid-day, we’d recommend following our suggestions in reverse order once you’ve staked your claim on some chairs – lazy river and wave pool followed by the slides. 

Overall, Blizzard Beach can easily be done in a day. Heck, you could even go to both Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon and still have time to see everything. Either way, it’s a great addition to your Disney World vacation.

Best Spots For Seating At Blizzard Beach

As we mentioned above, seating is a very important part of your day at Blizzard Beach. You want to make sure that you get great seats as you’ll most likely be there all day long. If you want shade all day, there are places for this. If you want sun all day, these are easy to find. If you want a location near most of the attractions, you can find these too. Below we’ve pieced together a map so that you can visualize where you’re going and where each spot is that we’re talking about.

The key to getting one of these spots is to get to the park early, before it opens. We mentioned that the parking lot has no guard shack at it so guests can show up as early as they want. You’ll probably just have to sit in your car until a Cast Member directs you to enter but at least you’ll be one of the firsts, giving you advantage to the best seating areas at the park.

Secluded Spot

This is a great place to enjoy some peace and quiet from all the hustle and bustle of the park. It’s shaded all day and not very many people ever come through here. It is further away from most attractions and pools but if you’re looking for seclusion than this is your place. We’ve marked it with RED on the map below.

Wave Pool Spot

WE love this spot because it puts you right in the middle of the action without things getting congested. It’s actually a platform the looks over the wave pool so it has great views and is very close to several slides. Because this area is desirable you will want to walk fast in the morning to get a spot. There are some shade clamshells here as well if you’re interested in those. We’ve marked this spot BLUE on the map below.

Picnic Spot

This is a great place to lay out all your stuff and enjoy some food all day long. We know how it is: the kids go out, they come back hungry, they go out again, come back for a snack and on and on. That’s why a covered picnic table is the best for those who plan to bring in all their food for the day. You’ll have a nice table to spread it all out on and eat as you will. We’ve marked this spot in BLACK on the map below.

The Tot Spot

This area is perfect for any families that have smaller kids. It’s located right inside Tike’s Peak which is designed for the little ones. You’ll find good seating here in both sun and shade and you’ll be able to watch your little ones play from a distance or you can jump right in. We’ve marked this spot in BROWN in the map below.

The Volleyball Spot

Like to play a little game of VB? This spot is perfect for the family who loves to set some sun, play some volleyball and then relax. Just bring your own ball and jump into a game! We also like this spot because it’s secluded for the most part with ample seating. On busy days you may have to coordinate with other groups..or challenge them! We’ve marked this spot with PINK on the map.

Disney Blizzard Beach Restaurants & Dining

A fair amount of dining options are available at Disney’s Blizzard Beach to help fuel you throughout your day. Most of these, with the exception of Lottawatta Lodge, are food and drink stands. Let’s dig in and see what’s available.

Arctic Expeditions

Need a refreshing beverage to sip on before your journey up the Chairlift? Stop by Arctic Expeditions, the yellow snowmobile bar, for a selection of alcoholic beverages. Wash it all down with some glazed nuts. 

Avalunch

Lunch shack with snow in top

Located near the Arctic Expeditions and I.C. Expeditions stands close to the Chairlift, Avalunch (get it?) serves up loaded theme park favorites like hot dogs topped with chili or bacon macaroni and cheese and loaded nachos. 

Cooling Hut

Nestled near the front of the park across from the lockers and changing rooms, the Cooling Hut is stocked with an array of snacks, from Mickey ice cream bars and Olaf strawberry lemonade bars to popcorn and pretzels with cheese. Hot and cold beverages are also available. 

Frostbite Freddy’s Frozen Freshments

Looking for something cold and wet to drink? Stop by to see Freddy at Frostbite Freddy’s Frozen Freshments next to the main entrance lockers. Alcoholic beverages are the focus here, but there are some non-alcoholic options available as well. 

Funnel Cakes at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park

Funnel cakes – simple and to the point. Located next to Melt-Away Bay, come here for delicious fried sweets slathered in fruity toppings and powdered sugar. 

I.C. Expeditions

Snow truck restaurant in ice

Swing by this snack stand made to look like a massive snowmobile between the Chairlift and Ski Patrol Training Camp for an assortment of icy delights. Floats, cones, and Mickey ice cream are available, as is the massive Sand Pail Sundae. Keep in mind that I.C. Expeditions is only open seasonally.

Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company

Located near Melt-Away Bay, Joffrey’s is a mainstay throughout Disney World, and offers up tons of hot, iced, and frozen coffee beverages and tea. Pastries are usually available as well, and kiosks will often feature seasonal drinks for a limited time. 

Lottawatta Lodge

Lottawatta Lodge (ah, we love a good pun) is Blizzard Beach’s only quick service restaurant. Right near the entrance to Blizzard Beach, Lottawatta Lodge is made to look like an alpine ski chalet. You can find plenty of meals here the whole family will love like burgers, flatbreads, salads, and chicken strips. Seating is plentiful here, making this an easy spot to grab a meal.  

Mini Donuts by Joffrey’s Coffee

All day can be breakfast time at this snack stand near Lottawatta Lodge. Grab a hot or cold drink and a full or half dozen of these babies along with a white chocolate, chocolate, or raspberry dipping sauce.

Polar Pub

Cheers to fun in the sun at Polar Pub next to Melt-Away Bay. An extensive drink menu is available at this full bar featuring beverages like the Banana Cabana and the frozen Blue Blizzard Margarita. 

Warming Hut

While the Cooling Hut is stocked with frozen treats, the Warming Hut next to Melt-Away Bay is a snack stand serving up some of the most interesting menu items in the park including the Shrimp Louie Lettuce Wrap, Honey-Butter Chicken Sandwich, and Loaded Mountain Tots. While it’s only open seasonally, this is an excellent alternative to Lottawatta Lodge.

Polar Patio Cabanas, Lodge Umbrellas, Lockers & Other Rentals

Tropical drink with snow in the background

As anyone who has ever been to a water park before can attest, landing your and your group some shaded beach chairs in a prime location can make your whole day easier. Fortunately, Blizzard Beach has you covered, along with covering anything else you might need while visiting for the day. 

Polar Patios

Polar Patios are Blizzard Beach’s rentable cabanas. These accommodate parties of up to 6 people and include a number of amenities like: a private deck with an umbrella, cushioned seating, towels, a locker, refillable drink mugs, and all-day ice water. Cast members are available to help with food and drink orders. Although the prices vary depending on how busy the park is, they are typically around $360, not including park admission. Reservations are encouraged and can be made by calling 407-WDW-PLAY, or you can check for same-day availability at the Beach Haus. 

Lodge Umbrellas

Lodge Umbrellas are an alternative, more affordable seating option for up to 4 people. With a lodge umbrella, you’ll have access to a beach umbrella, towels, a table, two reserved beach chairs, and two reserved loungers. Prices are typically around $75, not including park admission, though that can increase during busier periods. As with Polar Patios, reservations are encouraged and can be made by calling 407-WDW-PLAY, or you can check for same-day availability at the Beach Haus.

Blizzard Beach Lockers

As tempting as it is to leave your belongings on a chair covered with a beach towel, the only tried-and-true method for keeping your things safe is to put them in a locker. Locker rentals are done through an electronic kiosk near the lockers. Simply choose which size locker you need – a regular (12.5” x 10” x 17”) costs $10 per day while the large (15.5” x 13” x 17”) costs $15 – then process your payment using either cash or a credit card. You’ll then choose your own 4-digit PIN to unlock your locker. Once you’ve paid, your locker will be good for the full day. Look for a locker near the Beach Haus and Snowless Joe’s.

Blizzard Beach Towel Rentals

Don’t worry about needing to cram your beach towel into your suitcase – just get a Blizzard Beach towel rental instead. Swing by the Beach Haus or Snowless Joe’s for a towel for the day. Towel rentals are free for guests staying at a Disney resort or $2 for everyone else.

Blizzard Beach Life Jackets

Is there someone in your party who is a little unsure in the water? No worries, jut snag them a complimentary life jacket rental from Frostbite Freddy’s Frozen Freshments. You might also be able to find some near the entrance/exit to the lazy river. 

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park FAQs

Want to know more about Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park? Read on for answers to some commonly asked questions.

Is Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach better?

Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder. In other words, it really depends on what you’re looking for. Blizzard Beach’s theme, though cute, isn’t for everyone. After all, listening to Christmas carols in between trips down water slides or into the wave pool might get old after awhile for some people. Plus, while Typhoon Lagoon has a wide array of attractions that are sure to be fun for the whole family, Blizzard Beach is very heavy on the waterslides. So, if you’re someone who loves thrill rides and/or Christmas, Blizzard Beach is definitely for you. However, if you’d prefer something more tropical or are looking for rides for people of all ages, you’ll probably enjoy Typhoon Lagoon more. 

What should I wear? Can you wear water shoes at Blizzard Beach? 

This is Disney World after all, so swimsuits must be suitable for a family environment. Swimsuits with sharp pieces like zippers or buckles are allowed in the park, however, they are not allowed on the attractions. And not only are water shoes allowed at Blizzard Beach, they are also highly encouraged. The ground can get rough and hot as you’re walking from slide to slide and, unlike sandals, you’re actually able to wear them on the rides. Plus, you’ll want to have those on for all those trips to the bathroom. 

A cooler full of food items

Can you bring food into Blizzard Beach?

Yes, as with the rest of Walt Disney World, you are able to bring your own food into Blizzard Beach. Keep in mind that if you choose to pack your food in a cooler, it will be checked for prohibited items like glass, alcoholic beverages, and loose or dry ice. Instead, keep your items cold using ice packs. 

Is the water at Blizzard Beach heated?

Yes! Aside from some areas with ‘snow melt’ (AKA cold water) along Cross Country Creek, all of the water at Blizzard Beach is heated. 

Is renting a Polar Patio cabana worth it at Blizzard Beach?

Honestly, it depends on your priorities and what you’d like to get out of your day at Blizzard Beach. Shade isn’t too hard to find at Blizzard Beach. So, unless you’ve got some wiggle room in your budget or you’ve got a group of 6 people who are willing to split the cost for the convenience of having a home base with an attendant to help with any food or beverage needs, we say you’re better of saving your money and finding somewhere to sit for free. 

Well, that wraps up our Disney Blizzard Beach guide. Make the most of your time at Walt Disney World with one of our one-day plans to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, or Hollywood Studios. Or, if you’d prefer to make your dollar go farther, save some cash with our discounted Walt Disney World tickets. Interested in learning more about Disney’s other Water Park?
