Disney's Blizzard Beach

Water Theme Park at Walt Disney World

Disney's Blizzard Beach is one of two water theme parks located at the sprawling Walt Disney World Resort, just a few miles southwest of central Orlando. The concept at this park is rather wacky, but undeniably fun; it’s built around the idea that it was once a ski-resort which ‘melted into a watery wonderland’.

The result is a juxtaposition of snow-capped mountains that you can slide your way down next white-sanded beaches for relaxing by the unusually warm ‘artic’ waters. A highlight is ‘Mount Gushmore’ – home to one of the world’s tallest and fastest waterslides, and there’s plenty of other less hair-raising slides and attractions to keep the whole family occupied for the day.

There are around a dozen main attractions in total at Disney’s Blizzard Beach, most of which are centered on, in or around the huge Mount Gushmore. The 'Chairlift' takes you right up to the top, with slides including the exhilarating ‘Downhill Double Dipper’, ‘Slush Gusher’ and the scariest of the lot, ‘Summit Plummet’, which sees riders drop down a flume from a near-vertical position!

For some more family-friendly fun at Disney’s Blizzard beach, duel it out at ‘Toboggan Racers’, ride the rapids on the ‘Teamboat Springs’ or float along the very tranquil ‘Cross Country Creek’ in a rubber tube. Do note that most of the attractions here are only open from 10:00-17:00, despite Blizzard Beach’s slightly longer opening times.

Although part of Walt Disney World, tickets can be purchased separately for Disney’s Blizzard Beach, with day passes starting from $58 (which is about half the price of some of their other parks!). You can also by a ‘park-hopper’ ticket as part of Disney’s many other flexible entry options.

There is also onsite parking as well as all the facilities you’d expect from a major Orlando theme park; this means heaps of restaurants, changing facilities, shops and uncovered spots for taking time out from the sun.
