Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, one of 2 Water Parks in Walt Disney World Resort, features one of the world’s tallest and fastest free-falling waterslides, as well as slides and rides for the whole family—like a kid-sized, snow-castle fountain play area with scaled-down versions of the more thrilling attractions.
The story behind Disney’s Blizzard Beach begins with a freak snow storm that blanketed Florida. Within the blink of a snowflake-tipped eye, a ski resort sprang up with slalom courses, toboggan slides and iceberg walkways. Then, just as quickly, the weather shifted back to hot. The whole resort started to melt. What to do?
An enterprising alligator saw an opportunity! Clad in a scarf and hat, this Ice Gator slid down the snow-less ski jump, shouting ‘Yahoooo!’ all the way. With a big splash he landed in a pool of melted snow below the mountain. It was at this moment the slushy, slippery slopes became an exhilarating Water Park with a ski theme.
Renting a locker for your personal belongings is highly recommended, especially if you plan on experiencing the big thrill attractions—since it may be difficult to keep track of your hats, glasses, jewelry and things while plunging down a nearly vertical 13-story high, 360-foot long flume through a darkened tunnel at speeds of 50 to 60 miles per hour.
It is also advisable to wear water shoes or flip-flops while visiting Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, as you may choose to climb stairs to access certain attractions. Plus, the ground can get hot and so will your feet!
Experience an oasis within an oasis. A Polar Patio is a private retreat with a wooden deck and an umbrella shade. Enjoy a cooler stocked with ice and bottled water, all-day drink mugs, towel service for 6 and your own private locker. Each patio comes with a personal attendant and waiter service to make sure your every need is met. For reservations and pricing information, please call (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529.
