5 Reasons to Visit Disney’s Blizzard Beach
Whether you live somewhere where you scrape ice off your car, or sweat even with your A/C at full capacity, you’ll find relief at Disney’s Blizzard Beach. From relaxing tube rides, to exhilarating drops, this water park in Orlando has much to offer the Florida traveler. We’ve listed 5 reasons you should visit Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park right now:
1. It’s Open This Winter
While some may feel that average winter temperatures in the 60s are too chilly for waterparks, those from northern US regions that reach temperatures below zero might find that laughable. However, it may surprise you that many Florida water parks close during January. Thankfully, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is open during January this year. If you or your kids have hearts set on visiting a water park as soon as possible, you can rest assured that this water park in Orlando is ready for you right now.
2. Its Theme is Unique
Water parks typically have a tropical theme, if they have a theme at all, but not Disney’s Blizzard Beach. It’s one of the best water parks in Florida, if not the world, for its original winter theme. While some water parks in other parts of the states have taken on a winter theme, none come close to the scale of Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park. The park has a fictional backstory, as a former ski resort that warmed up and melted, creating “Mount Gushmore”.
3. It’s Ideal for Thrillseekers
This water park in Orlando offers rides that even the most adventurous will enjoy, making it one of the best water parks in Florida for thrillseekers. The Summit Plummet, for instance, is one of the tallest and fastest body slides in the world. The 120-foot slide provides a near-vertical drop. For competitive thrills, guests can race each other on the Downhill Double Dipper or the Toboggan Racers. If you have a need for speed, you’ll have a blast on the Slush Gusher.
4. It’s Inclusive to All
In addition to rides that will get your blood pumping, Disney’s Blizzard Beach offers rides that more mellow travelers can enjoy, as well as attractions specifically for young children. Guests of all ages looking for gentler rides can enjoy the chairlift, to get an aerial tour of Mount Gushmore. Of course, no water park would be complete without a lazy river, and Cross Country Creek is a fantastic one. This all-ages ride travels around the entire park. Little ones can enjoy these rides, as well as Tike’s Peak, a mini water park within the park. Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is also inclusive of people with handicaps. While not all rides are accessible, many are, thanks to special wheelchairs that are provided that can go in the water.
5. It’s Perfectly Situated
Disney’s Blizzard Beach is located right in the heart of Orlando, near Disney World’s other incredible parks, including another one of the best water parks in Florida—Typhoon Lagoon—which will open again later this year. If you want to mix in some dry theme park fun while you’re visiting, other popular Disney parks such as Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom are all open year-round as well. Fit as much of the Disney magic into one trip as possible!
