Things To Do At Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park
Disney’s Blizzard Beach is open and ready for you and your family to enjoy some fun in the snow….I mean sun 😉 If you aren’t headed to one of Disney theme parks or relaxing at your Disney hotel, you will definitely want to spend some time at Disney’s Water Parks.
Disney’s Blizzard Beach is known for its immersive theming, from the moment you walk in, you will feel like you are at a snow lodge, but in Florida! As the story goes, a legendary snowstorm in Florida prompted local opportunists to build a ski resort. When Florida’s climate returned to mild temperatures and the snow began to melt, Blizzard Beach was born. Did you know that Blizzard Beach is home to the first ski lift in Florida?
Magic All Year Round
Florida’s sunny weather makes Disney’s Blizzard Beach an ideal spot for vacationers and Florida residents to escape this spring, summer and beyond. It’s easy to spend a full day relaxing and enjoying all the attractions at Blizzard Beach. Personally, one of those beach chairs in the sand is one of my favorite spots, while I would guess the kids would spend most of their day on one of the many water slides.
Fun for the Whole Family
From specialized areas just for the littles, to Summit Plummet, Disney’s Blizzard Beach offers thrilling attractions and relaxation for all ages with unique spaces for every member of the family to enjoy.
Summit Plummet is a 120-foot-tall waterslide with a near-vertical drop. YES! Oh, this one will definitely get your heart pumping! Disney enthusiasts can accelerate up to 65 mph on the slide, making it one of the fastest attractions at Walt Disney World. By comparison, Epcot’s Test Track reaches an average top speed of 64.9 mph.
Spanning 3,000 feet, Cross Country Creek ranks among the longest lazy rivers in the United States. It takes between 20 and 30 minutes to complete one journey around Cross Country Creek– depending of course on how lazy you want to be!
At 1,400 feet, Teamboat Springs is one of the world’s longest family whitewater raft rides.
Tike’s Peak features miniature slides, snow chutes and an inner-tube ride for preschoolers under 48 inches tall. Tike’s Peak also features plenty of lounge areas for families.
Ski Patrol Training Camp was designed with older kids and tweens in mind. It features an obstacle course, zip line, body slides and inner-tube ride.
