Guests visiting Walt Disney World during the first part of December have seen a lot of adjustments. Park hours have been changed drastically throughout the first part of the month. We have seen theme parks close early, hours extended, and some parks not even open. As we prepare for another week of magic, this won’t stop anytime soon.
Park Closes Once Again
The cooler weather that Walt Disney World has been facing lately is excellent for those guests enjoying the holiday magic in the parks. The cooler weather makes it feel more like the holiday season, as guests can get cozy in those holiday sweaters and pajamas.
The downside of the cooler weather is that the one water park that Disney guests can visit during their vacation might be closed. This will be the case on Monday; looking ahead, it could also happen on feature days.
The highs at Walt Disney World this coming week are predicted to be in the mid-60s to 70s. Although it will feel pleasant in the park, it won’t be the best weather for Blizzard Beach.
A high of 77 could be reached mid-week, but otherwise, cooler temperatures could continue to disrupt Blizzard Beach.
It isn’t possible to see cooler temperatures from December through February. With that in mind, when traveling to Walt Disney World during this time of year, it might be an excellent option to hold off on water park tickets.
Waiting to Purchase Tickets
Guests can add a water park option when booking Walt Disney World tickets. The water park and sports option and the park hopper plus option give guests access to the Disney water parks when visiting.
Although this can be a great add during the warm months, you might want to hold off during the year’s cooler months. Instead of adding this theme park ticket to your trip, consider purchasing it once at Walt Disney World. We typically wouldn’t recommend this option, but with so much uncertainty with the water park availability, it seems to be an intelligent choice.
We hope warmer weather is on the way to Walt Disney World. Until then, remember your Walt Disney World Resort pools are heated for your enjoyment all year!
