It looks like “winter” has hit the Orlando area as the holiday season is approaching! The temperatures for the next few days are expected to be in the low 60’s for the highs and it looks like Disney will be closing Typhoon Lagoon Water Park in expectation of this. The park is currently closed with no operating hours for December 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Currently the park is expected to re-open for regular hours on Thursday, December 5th, 2019. Blizzard Beach is already closed due to annual maintenance and refurbishment, so it is not impacted by this closure.
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. The cold weather decreases the likelihood of very many guests attempting to come to the water park, making it a huge waste of operational resources to staff the park for low attendance. As always, we will keep you posted about any changes we learn with the operational schedule and the weather forecasts.
