Are you ready for the summer? Many Walt Disney World Guests are planning their summer trips already.

Some Disney Resorts, including Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, are getting upgrades to be ready for vacationers. At this time, Disney has not yet announced the exact reopening date of the Polynesian, but it is expected to be sometime this summer, according to a recent Instagram post from Disney World President Jeff Vahle.

With Disney continuing to release park hours into the summer months, we noticed that Disney World recently updated its calendar. Here’s what we know so far.

Disney Water Park Hours

Walt Disney World is not just for traditional theme park fans. To beat the Orlando, Florida heat, many Guests travel to the Disney water parks to cool off and escape the hustle and bustle. Although Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park is still temporarily closed as part of Disney World’s phased reopening process during the ongoing pandemic, Disney Guests can once again visit Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park.

If you’re planning to visit Disney’s Blizzard Beach, the July 1-3 hours for the popular water park are:

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is not currently requiring reservations for entry, though a valid ticket is necessary. The water park contains 12 attractions, including Cross Country Creek, Downhill Double Dipper, and the famous Summit Plummet. The official Disney website describes Summit Plummet as:

Plunge 12 stories almost straight down, rocketing through a darkened tunnel and into a massive spray of whitewater after a 360-foot-long, high-speed descent.

Right now, Guests may purchase a one-day water park ticket for $69 and can plan their next water park adventure through the official Walt Disney World Resort website. It is worth noting that Park Hopper Plus tickets also offer water park access.
