After nearly a year of being closed, Disney announced on Tuesday, Dec. 22 that Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is set to reopen on March 7, 2021.
Further reopening details haven’t been revealed yet, but according to the official Walt Disney World website, “Like the other areas of Walt Disney World Resort, we will welcome back Guests and Cast Members to Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park in a responsible way, with a plan focused on health and well-being. We will provide more details on our Water Parks’ reopening plan at a later time.”
In September, Disney announced that Blizzard Beach and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, the two water parks on WDW property, would remain closed through at least March 7, 2021.
At the time, Disney also noted that they hoped to reopen at least one of the water parks on that date, pending government approvals.
