Blizzard Beach – Walt Disney World

Blizzard Beach is one of two family-friendly Walt Disney World Water Parks. Guests will enter a charming ski village at the base of Mount Gushmore and will immediately notice the highest "slope" Summit Plummet. From chalets covered in snow and a Ski Patrol "training" area to an actual Chairlift up the mountain, this icy park in the middle of the Sunshine State is the perfect place to make heartwarming memories.


Blizzard Beach is open seasonally starting January 8, 2018. Guests can purchase a one day ticket for Blizzard Beach and may also visit Typhoon Lagoon for no additional charge – if both water parks are open on the same day.  For multiple water park visits, guests may purchase a Park Hopper Plus upgrade in addition to their Theme Park tickets. Park Hopper Plus prices may vary based on the number of days purchased.

  • One day ticket (ages 10 and older) $65
  • One day ticket (ages 3-9) $59

Another option is to purchase tickets with summer block-out dates. Block-out dates are from May 25, 2019 – August 25, 2019

  • One day ticket (ages 10 and older) $60
  • One day ticket (ages 3-9) $55


Whether guests are hoping to experience some serious thrills or just want to relax in the sun, everyone will find something to enjoy.
