Walt Disney World Temporarily Closes Blizzard Beach Due to Weather

It looks like cold weather has made its way into Central Florida again.  Disney decided to close Blizzard Beach in light of the weather.  The water park was closed on Wednesday, January 17th and will remain closed through Friday, January 19th.  It is currently expected to re-open on Saturday, January 20th.  The temperatures are set to be in the 30s to 40s with the cold front that will be in the area. Typhoon Lagoon 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.

We will keep you all updated on any changes to the schedule.  We hope all of you at Walt Disney World over the next few days stay warm out there and enjoy the cooler temps!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
