There have been various closures lately around Walt Disney World due to colder weather rolling through. Now, unfortunately for those of you who were looking forward to warm temperatures, it looks like more cold weather is headed for the Central Florida area again. Currently Walt Disney World is expecting to close Typhoon Lagoon on December 10th and December 17th due to the cooler temps. At this time the water park is currently set to reopen to guests on December 18th, 2018. The temperatures have been forecast to be too cold to expect a large turnout for the water park attractions. 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.
