Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park
Florida Guide > Disney General
Disney legend tells the
tale of a freak winter storm that dropped snow all over the western side
of the WDW resort! And as temperatures soared back the usual Orlando
temps and the snow began to melt, great slides etc were made and so
Blizzard Beach was created! It’s
a fun-packed ski resort in the middle of the Sunshine State.
You can see Summit
Plummet, it’s huge freefall slide from many routes as you approach the
The kids love this park
with the tattooing, hair braiding, doughnuts and generally great
atmosphere and wonderful rides. Again
take your refillable drinks bottles and pay $5 to refill with “soda”
all day – they have now created a barcode system so queuing at the
food counters is no longer necessary.
Plenty of sunbathing
spots and loads to do as with Typhoon Lagoon. Teenagers enjoy this park too as there are some breathtaking
slides to contend with.
A few shops and adequate
amount of food counters with burgers, hotdogs, chicken, pizza etc. Not wide choice but great cheap food. Also two bars here – don’t forget your ID.
Summit Plummet – 120ft
freefall speed slide – the fastest and tallest in the world. You travel straight down it at 60mph into water at the bottom
– 48” height requirement. Have been told it is exhilarating but personally I couldn’t
even manage to get up to the top as terrified of heights and then I
could definitely not come down.
Family white-water raft which three to five people can get into, great
fun – you will get wet flying down the 1200sqft waterfall.
lane water slide down lots of dips – brilliant!! You can race each other.
Downhill Double Dipper
48” again! Only 25mph
so I did this one – once!!
again! 90ft slide over two
humps. Can’t comment! But I think the looks on the people’s faces as they came
off says that it was a good one.
flumes –go from the top of the mountain and then back through slalom
gates – fab ride (did it many times).
Usual water park inner-tube ride – great fun – one of the slides is in the
dark! Again did this one
many times as can go three different ways.
see park but not for me but always busy.
Smaller version (safer!!)
under 4ft allowed – take the little ones and you can sunbathe and
watch them play on the slides and in the fountains.
pool with melting snow waterfalls into it.
Cross Country Creek
My favourite – a float around the edge of the park – hate the
“melting ice” dropping from overhead though! It’s freezing! Fun
for all the family on this leisurely ride.
Typhoon Lagoon still my
favourite but warm to this park each time we go – the kids enjoy it
too. Good day out, get there early, stay til 3ish, back to villa and then off to a parade –
my idea of heaven!
