Where are we going today?
Do you think you can handle one of the worlds tallest and fastest free-falling waterslides!? It sounds scary! But if you are up for the challenge, then Blizzard Beach - one of two water parks within Walt Disney World Resort - is the place to head.
Blizzard beach is an exhilarating water park with a ski theme. Sounds a bit strange doesn’t it? But its definitely very fun - and has something for the whole family.
The relaxing Cross Country Creek takes you right around the entire park on an inner tube, so you can sit back and listen to all the screams and laughter from those on the fast paced thrill rides! A great way to take a moment out of the hustle and bustle of the park.
For those wanting a bit more speed, the Runoff Rapids allow you to ride with a friend down three different waterslides thanks to the run off from the infamous Mount Gushmore!
Fancy taking on that challenge we mentioned earlier!? Then the Summit Plummet is for you. This ride has a height restriction so only those brave souls over 48 inches can participate, but be prepared for your stomach to sink! It is a near vertical drop - and one of the tallest and fastest freefall slides on the planet. Did we tell you the slope is 120 foot drop? That’s 12 stories! It makes us nervous even thinking about it.

When can we go?
Hours vary depending on the season
It won’t be long before you are saying “I’m full!”....There are 8 counter service options around the park serving classic American foods. The fun to say Lottawatta Lodge serves up cheeseburgers, pizza, wraps....if you fancy more BBQ flavors of pulled pork and Jerk Chicken, then the Warming Hut is the place to be, and if you want to cool down with ice creams and smoothies, then visit Frostbite Freddy’s Frozen Freshments (say that quickly!).
Any Top Tips?
Its recommended that you rent a locker, especially because on the big thrill rides you often might lose track of hats, jewelry and valuables. Also, don’t forget to bring suitable water shoes or flip flops!.
Need a little extra help?
The Disney parks do all they can for those with disabilities. Guest Services will help with what rides and areas you can visit depending on your disability, and will offer any assistance they can, so no-one will miss out. .
Can I get one of those?
You can never walk around a Disney park without seeing a place to buy fun and exciting toys and souvenirs. You might want to stock up so try and buy all your gifts towards the end of your time there so you don’t have to be carrying them around, and can concentrate on which ride to go on next!.

I loved this Park just as much as Typhoon Lagoon. Summit Plummet was the highlight of my day, but the Slush Gusher and Toboggan Racers were also quite good. My feet got a little bit scratched in the wave pool, but it did not affect my day at all. One of the best water parks I've been too. Note, the Lazy River here was better than Typhoon Lagoon.

Some fun slides, and the training camp bit excited the kids. The main wave pool was small. Worst of all the surface under the wave pool, like Typoon Lagoon, is very rough and easily scratches your skin off if you get pushed around by the waves.
Wasps are a pest in the seating areas too.

Awesome experience!! This is a great water park with lots of fun and diverse rides. The park itself is pleasant and well-maintained so even if you are just hanging out with the kids, it's a great environment.

I could not believe the dreadful surface of this water park. Myself and my 3 grandchildren had cuts and scrapes which spoiled the whole experience. How this continues year after year I just don't know.
