Fans are devastated Disney’s water park is closed with no sign of reopening

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 the Disney Springs shopping and dining district.

The Orlando Theme Park Resort is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, but unfortunately one of the parks at Walt Disney World is currently closed during the celebrations.

Blizzard Beach water park at Walt Disney World is home to many famous Disney attractions including Tike’s Peak, Runoff Rapids and of course Summit Plummet, the tallest and fastest freefall slide!

Unfortunately, guests weren’t able to visit Blizzard Beach as Disney previously announced it would be closed for an extended renovation. The initial renovation should be completed by mid-March. but the official Walt Disney World website has since been updated to show that the water park will be closed indefinitely.

Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach typically close each year during the winter months for off-season renovations. Disney hasn’t officially announced an end date for the water park’s renovation, meaning the park will remain closed indefinitely.

And Disney fans aren’t happy about it.

Inside the Magic reader Laurie prefers Blizzard Beach to Typhoon Lagoon, commenting on our last article:

We love Blizzard Beach more than Typhoon Laguna.

More family-friendly floats and slides. Area for juniors that parents like too.

And Carrie mentioned how sad it is that Blizzard Beach is closed during Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary:

So dumb it’s closed for the 50th summer.

Another Inside the Magic reader, Rebekah, expressed her disappointment, writing:

Will miss Blizzard Beach this year. The park I enjoy the most. A sad news for me!

Unfortunately, little is known about what Disney is doing during the water park’s closure, but it’s clear that Imagineers are working hard to get Blizzard Beach ready for guests.

Also at this time, the water park will be closed indefinitely as Disney has not yet announced an opening date. Inside the Magic will update you as soon as we receive information.
