After a year long closure, Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park has finally reopened to the public. Unlike the theme parks, Disney will not be implementing a date-specific reservation system. They will have capacity limits in place, and face masks are required only while not in the water. At the park, you’ll find safety measures in place including temperature checks and social distancing markers on the ground throughout the park.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Disney chose to close all their parks in March 2020. In late 2020, they slowly began reopening their theme parks, but kept the water parks closed until March 7, 2021. Typhoon Lagoon, Disney’s other water park, remains closed for the time being.
Tickets to Blizzard Beach can be purchased online or at the gate. The price is currently $69 for a one-day adult ticket. Children aged 3-9 years old cost $63, and kiddos under 3 get in free. Entry is subject to availability, which is limited due to the pandemic. Keep in mind, single day tickets are good until used through December 31, 2021. This is great in the case that the park is full when you show up. It also means that you can buy tickets for someone else to use at their leisure, without having to choose a specific date for them to go!
Blizzard Beach has a wide array of water activities to keep you cool. For the risk-takers, you’ll find thrill rides such as the Downhill Double Dipper, Slush Gusher, and Summit Plummet. These high-speed water slides are for those above 48″ tall. For those looking for a more relaxed day in the water, you’ll find reprieve at Cross Country Creek, a 3,000 foot long lazy river that takes you on a journey through caverns, under bridges and through waterfalls of fresh spring water. There are double and single innertubes available at all of the seven entrances to the lazy river around the park. Jump in and float along as long as you like! There are less thrilling water slides available for the whole family to enjoy together as well, such as Teamboat Springs and Snow Stormers.
