Frequent visitors of Walt Disney World Resort are no strangers to the Sunshine State’s fickle weather. When it comes to Florida, it’s genuinely rain or shine at a moment’s notice, not to mention the mighty hurricanes that come traveling through the state every year (such as last year’s Hurricane Ian).
After all, who hasn’t gotten caught in a sudden rainstorm while visiting a theme park such as Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom?

That being said, during the winter, Florida residents and Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort don’t have to worry about any hurricanes. However, they should keep an eye out for weather that quickly fluctuates between warm and chilly.
That’s why it comes as little surprise that Blizzard Beach, one of the Disney water Parks, will be closed today and tomorrow.

Although the water Park’s sudden closure can be frustrating, Walt Disney World Resort wants to keep each Guest as safe as possible. The Disney water Parks (Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon, which is currently closed for refurbishment) experience short-notice closures more often than any other Disney Resort in Central Florida.
Conveniently, though, Blizzard Beach’s ticket policy is very lenient, and a Guest’s ticket won’t go to waste if the Park is closed due to weather restrictions. For more information about Blizzard Beach’s ticket policy, check out its official website.
