We recently reported that Walt Disney World Guests can once again purchase tickets for Blizzard Beach water park, which is set to open on March 7, 2021 following its coronavirus-related closure.
The water park will follow many of the same health and safety protocols as Disney World’s four theme parks — EPCOT, Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios — including temperature checks, social distancing protocols, and face mask requirements for Guests aged 2 and over.
It is, however, worth noting that masks will not have to be worn while Guests are in the water or actively eating or drinking in a stationary position, such as sitting at a table.
Disney’s official website notes that Disney Park Pass reservations, which have been extended into 2022 for all four Disney World theme parks, will not be currently required for water park entry:
At this time a park reservation is not required to visit a water park, however, reservation requirements are subject to change. Water parks are subject to rehabilitation, seasonal, weather and capacity closures.
You can visit Blizzard Beach by purchasing a one-day water park ticket or purchasing the Park Hopper Plus ticket option. Modified Park Hopping returned to Walt Disney World Resort on January 1, 2021.
For those unfamiliar with Blizzard Beach, the official description of the water park reads:

The upcoming spring water park reopening is yet another step forward in Disney World’s phased reopening process, which began in July 2020.
Disney officials have not yet announced a reopening date for the other Disney World water park, Typhoon Lagoon. Stay tuned to Inside the Magic for all of the latest Walt Disney World Resort news.
