Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park Remains Closed

If you wanted to head to Disney’s Blizzard Beach on Sunday, November 7, you will need to change your plans. The popular Water Park is closed for the third day in a row. Don’t worry, it isn’t because there is a technical problem. It is because of the cold temperatures that have hit Central Florida. Nearby Aquatica Orlando and Universal’s Volcano Bay Water Park are closed as well.

We’ve reached the time of year when the weather is all over the place in the Orlando area. That is why you need to check the forecast before you head out on your Walt Disney World vacation. The current 15 day forecast has high temperatures ranging from the 60s to the 80s. The good news is that the chance of rain has gone down. The daily storms of the summer months are mostly gone. That doesn’t mean that it won’t rain, so once again, check the forecast.

It looks like Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park will be operating tomorrow. As of right now, it is listed as open on the Walt Disney World website. The hours listed are 10:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park has not yet reopened. Remember, Disney Park Pass Reservations are not required for Blizzard Beach.

If Disney’s Blizzard Beach is open on a cooler day, expect light crowds. When the temperature dips below 80 many Guests think that a day in the water is not a good idea. The water is heated, so you will not be cold while splashing around. Getting from one slide to the next may be a bit chilly, but if the sun is out you should be comfortable. Always remember to wear sunscreen, even during the fall and winter months. The Florida sun can be brutal all year long, and you don’t want a sunburn to ruin your vacation.

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.
