Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is the one park that I haven’t been able to visit yet at the Walt Disney World Resort, so you know I’ve been dying to go! Plus, this amazing article from the Disney Parks Blog gives even more fun facts about this amazingly fun vacation destination! The fabulous park is scheduled to open for it’s 25th season on March 7th, 2021!
The entire park has a fun story all its own! Legend says that there was a massive snowstorm in Florida that made locals want to build a ski resort. Unfortunately, when Florida got its normal weather back, all of the snow began to melt, creating Blizzard Beach!
Summit Plummet is one of the fastest waterslides in the world, and one of the fastest attractions at Walt Disney World! The 120-foot near-vertical drop can accelerate riders to speeds up to 65 miles per hour! Since it really is the only ski resort in Florida, Blizzard Beach also boasts the first chairlift built in Florida! It gives you fantastic views of the park and easily transports you to the top of Summit Plummet, Slush Gusher, and Teamboat Springs!
If you get hungry during your visit, there are plenty of tasty treats to be devoured! You can find classics like churros and Mickey ice cream bars along with unique finds like loaded nachos from Frostbite Freddy’s Frozen Freshments! You can also wash it down with yummy park-inspired beverages from the full-service beach bar, The Polar Pub!
For a relaxing ride, make sure you check out Cross Country Creek, which at 3,000 feet, is one of the longest lazy rivers in the country! It can take 20-30 minutes to complete one loop around the river! If you prefer a bit more excitement on you river journey, there is also Teamboat Springs, one of the longest family whitewater raft rides in the world!
