After being closed for four days due to low temperatures in Central Florida, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is open on Tuesday, November 9. The hours of operation are from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Disney Park Pass Reservations are not required for Blizzard Beach.

It looks like the next few days will be perfect if you plan to spend a day in the water. Even though the mornings will be cool, the temperatures should warm up nicely by the time that the Water Park opens. There is another cold spell on the way, so if you are thinking of visiting on Sunday you will want to make sure that the Water Park is open before you head out. Currently, the forecasted high temperature for Sunday, November 14 is 69 degrees.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is one of the most popular and highly rated Water Parks in the world. The legend behind the Park is that there was a freak snowstorm in Florida, so they built a Ski Resort. Of course, the snow then melted, so it was turned into a Water Park.

There is something for everyone at Disney’s Blizzard Beach. One of the biggest thrills at Walt Disney World is Summit Plummet. You will plunge almost straight down 12 stories! Riders need to be at least 48 inches tall. On the other end of the spectrum is Tikes Peak. This is for the 48 inch and under crowd. There are plenty of other options for all ages.

While Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park reopened in March, Typhoon Lagoon remains closed. At this time of year, there is usually only one Water Park open and the other will close for refurbishment. Of course, this has not been a normal year. When we hear word on Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park’s reopening, we will let you know.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
