The Disney World water parks closed earlier along with the rest of Disney World. But now, even after much of Disney World has reopened, the water parks remain closed, at least until March 2021.
It’s no secret that Disney World is constantly changing.
Between decor, new attractions, and construction, Disney continually adds magic to its parks. Since 2020 was a year full of closures and a worldwide pandemic, Disney has had to adapt and make changes. But, what are the biggest changes as we head into the year 2021? Let’s find out!
2020 sure has been a year, huh?
Honestly, we’re totally ready for it to be the NEW YEAR, which will bring plenty of exciting things to Walt Disney World.
The Disney World water parks closed alongside most of the resort back in March. Until today, they remain closed with no news of reopening.
Now, Disney has announced that Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon will not reopen until at least March 7th — almost a full year of closure. Due to this fact, some Disney World Annual Passholders will be receiving partial refunds.
While the theme parks in Disney World are now open, both of Disney’s water parks — Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park — remain closed.
Now we’ve got an update from Disney in terms of when we’ll potentially be able to take a splash at those water parks again.
All four Disney World theme parks have now welcomed back guests, but some parts of the Resort still remain closed!
In the initial phase of reopening, some Disney World attractions and experiences will remain unavailable. So, if you’re headed to Disney World in the near future, prepare yourself for the lack of parades, fireworks, select attractions, restaurants — and water parks! Both Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach are still closed, and Disney has yet to announce a planned reopening date for either park.
The global health crisis has brought along another major event cancellation in Disney World.
Disney Vacation Club Members get to enjoy lots of different perks — one of the newest being the Moonlight Magic events that give them after-hours access to the theme parks to attend dance parties, eat snacks, ride rides, and meet characters. We’ve already seen several of the events canceled, and now the rest of the scheduled Moonlight Magic events have been canceled for 2020.
Though the Disney water parks remain closed, that hasn’t stopped Disney from working behind the scenes to enhance the experience at a water park!
Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon both have some awesome tube slides, and the lines can get pretty long. Well, Disney’s new water slide BRAKE technology could mean shorter lines in the long run!
When people come up with their absolute “must do” activities at Disney World, most travelers think of things like riding Space Mountain, watching the fireworks, and enjoying a delicious Dole Whip.
But in addition to these fan-favorite attractions and activities, there’s an entire world of unique and perhaps a bit bizarre things you can do at Disney World! Follow along for 10 of the best!
