Walt Disney World Waterparks Closed Due to Cold Weather Forecasts

Disney has announced that Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach at Walt Disney World will both be closed Wednesday, March 15th and Thursday, March 16th due to reports of cold weather coming to the Central Florida area.  The weather is expected to be in the mid 60’s for the high and in the low 40’s for the lows on those days.  Due to the cooler temps the water parks will be completely closed and are currently planned to re-open at 10AM on Friday, March 17th.


Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon had just re-opened on Sunday, March 12th after a long refurbishment that included the opening of a new water raft ride, Miss Adventure Falls.  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.  If guests avoid the water parks on cold days, they are losing money having the water parks open and could save on those costs.

As always, we will keep you posted about any changes we learn with this schedule and the weather forecasts.  How cold do you think is too cold to be at a water park?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
