Walt Disney World’s Blizzard Beach Expected to Close on January 23rd

There is typically always at least 1 water park open on any given day at Walt Disney World.  Typhoon Lagoon is currently closed for refurbishment, so that only leaves Blizzard Beach for daily operating hours.  Disney has announced that Blizzard Beach is planning to close on January 23rd due to projected low temperatures.  For guest and cast safety, as well as to prevent wasted operational costs due to low attendance, the park will close on this date.

Disney does have to close the water parks every now and then due to low temps even in Florida.  Most of the pools at Walt Disney World are heated, but in cooler temps, it can still lead to issues.  The water parks also go down for refurbishment each year during the off season.  The two water parks take turns undergoing refurbishments for a couple months so that the other park will remain open.

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!
