Blizzard Beach

Blizzard Beach, a Disney water park, offers 'cool' fun for the whole family. Designed like an Alpine Village, adults and kids take a "ski lift" to the top of the mountain and 'ski' down water slides to Christmas Carols and snow falling under the Florida sun. Whether your kids seek the adrenaline of Summit Plummet, a near vertical water slide, or the crash of the ocean at the wave pool, this Disney World attraction offers something for everyone, toddlers and younger children too. "Tike's Peak" is reserved for children less than 48 inches tall (120 centimeters). Make sure your toddlers and infants have swim diapers on! Life jackets are available to children off all ages and are included in the price of the ticket. Lifeguards, positioned literally everywhere, are quick to intervene.

Blizzard Beach is situated south of the Disney-MGM Studios within the Walt Disney World ® Resort.
Hours & Times
Blizzard Beach is open daily 10:00 to 17:00 in October and November and mid-January thru March, 10:00 to 18:00 April to September, 10:00 to 19:00 in summer and holidays. The water park is closed for refurbishment from November through the first week of January and may be closed for shorter periods at other times of the year. Avoid disappointment; check out the Disney calendar before you depart.
Admission & Fees
A daily entrance fee is charged. Children under 3 and parking are free. The entrance fee can be substantially lower if part of a Disney travel package; various combinations are available in Magic Your Way. Annual passes are the best option for families living nearby.
Things to Keep in Mind
Don't forget to pack your swimsuits and put on sunscreen, lots of it! While annoying, the love bugs that visit Florida a couple of times of year are harmless, they don't bite or sting. Coolers can be brought into the park but glass containers are not allowed.
