Blizzard Beach and Other Closures Planned for Walt Disney World on January 10th-11th Due to Weather

We have learned of various closures planned at Walt Disney World due to colder weather rolling through. According to their website, Walt Disney World is expecting to close Blizzard Beach Water Park on Thursday, January 10th and Friday, January 11th due to the cooler temps.  At this time the water park is currently set to reopen to guests on January 12th, 2019.  The temperatures have been forecast to be too cold to expect a large turnout for the water park attractions.  Typhoon Lagoon is already closed due to annual maintenance and refurbishment, so it is not impacted by this closure.  Currently, the Spirit of Aloha show at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is scheduled to cancel the 8:15 PM show on Thursday, January 10th only.

The water parks typically close when the temperatures are expected to be too low to be comfortable.  Many of the pools and some attractions are heated, but moving from attraction to attraction could be quite chilly.  Disney keeps guest safety in mind as well as the operational costs.  The cold weather decreases the likelihood of very many guests attempting to come to the water park, making it a huge waste of operational resources to staff the park  for low attendance.

As always, we will keep you posted about any changes we learn with the operational schedule and the weather forecasts that may impact your stay at Walt Disney World.

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
