Disney Blizzard Beach Water Park

Disney Blizzard Beach is one of two water parks in Disney World. This one is themed after a ski resort where a freak snowstorm hit. While it might look chilly, this Disney water park is warm all year!

The focal point of Disney’s Blizzard Beach is Summit Plummet which stands at 120 feet and sends you free-falling at speeds 60 miles per hour.

It is the second-tallest and fastest free-fall water slide in the world!

While you can walk all the way to the top, there is a second way to get to the ride.

Blizzard Beach has a chair lift that will take you to the upper area of the park.

Other Fun Areas to Explore at Blizzard Beach

While there are slides throughout the water park, other areas should be explored.

Blizzard Beach also features a lazy river, kid’s play areas, and a wave pool.

Cross Country Creek

One of the best ways to relax is to grab a float and spend an hour traveling around Blizzard Beach in their lazy river.

Cross Country Creek is also a great way to get from one part of the park to the other! There is no need to walk when you have a lazy river to carry you to your next destination.

Ski Patrol Training Camp

This is a part of the park that kids & tweens are going to really enjoy. There are some smaller-scale body slides and an obstacle course pool.

Tike’s Peak

If you are traveling with the littles, they will enjoy wading pools and these activities that come with a touch of frozen fun:

  • Miniature snow-banked slides
  • Side-by-side downhill slides
  • A junior inner-tube ride
  • Snow chutes
Blizzard Beach Wave Pool

The park is also home to the Melt-Away Bay, a 1.2 million gallon pool with waves up to six feet high.

The pool is surrounded by a white sand beach, with plenty of seating for sunbathing and relaxing.
