Walt Disney World to Close Blizzard Beach on Monday, April 16th

Blizzard Beach water park at Walt Disney World is expected to be closed on Monday, April 16th, 2018 per their website.  This is suspected to be due to cooler temperatures coming to the Central Florida area.  The current schedule online shows that the park will re-open on Tuesday, April 17th with usual operating hours.  Typhoon Lagoon currently shows as being open during this time and unaffected by the news of the cooler weather.  It is very likely that due to the temps,  Disney expects water park crowds to be far fewer and only feels the need to keep one of the water parks open.

The water parks typically close when the temperatures are expected to be too low to be comfortable, but in this case it could just be that there isn’t enough expected traffic to justify keeping two water parks open.  We have seen several different water park and resort pool closures throughout Walt Disney World over the last couple months.  Many of the pools and some attractions are heated, so they are still enjoyable depending on how cool the temps are. Disney keeps guest safety in mind as well as the operational costs.

It is weird to think about cooler temperatures descending upon Florida in April.  Would you prefer the heat or the cooler temps if you were there?

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!
