Walt Disney World is home to four theme parks – Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom – two water parks – Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach – as well as a shopping and dining area, Disney Springs.
The Orlando theme park is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, but unfortunately, one of the theme parks at Walt Disney World is currently closed during the festivities.
Blizzard Beach Water Park at Walt Disney World is home to several popular Disney attractions including Tike’s Peak, Runoff Rapids and of course, Summit Plummet, the longest and fastest free-body slide!
Unfortunately, guests were unable to visit Blizzard Beach as Disney previously announced that it would be closing for an extended renovation. Initial renovation work was due to finish in mid-March. but the Walt Disney World official website It has since been updated and now shows that the water park will be closed indefinitely.
Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are usually closed each year during the winter months to renovate during the low season. Disney hasn’t officially announced a water park renovation end date, which means the park will remain closed indefinitely.
And Disney fans aren’t happy about that.
Insider, magic reader Laurie prefers Blizzard Beach to Typhoon Lagoon as she commented on our recent article:
We love Blizzard Beach more than Typhoon Laguna.
More family friendly floats and slides. A kid’s area that parents love, too.
Carey spoke of how shameful it is that Blizzard Beach is closed during Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary:
So ridiculous that it’s closed on the fiftieth summer.
Another Rebekah from within the Magic Reader, Rebekah, expressed her disappointment, writing:
Will miss Blizzard Beach this year. The garden I enjoy the most. Sad report for me!
Unfortunately, not much is known about what Disney is doing while the water park is closed, but it’s clear that Imagineers are working hard to get Blizzard Beach ready for guests.
Again, at this time, the water park will be closed indefinitely because Disney has not yet announced an opening date. Inside the Magic will update you whenever we get the information.
