Despite the holiday crowds pouring into the theme parks, it seems that Disney’s water park — Blizzard Beach — remains practically empty.

The backstory of Blizzard Beach is that a one-time ski resort melted away into a watery wonderland — now, it is known as Blizzard Beach! You and your family can discover frosty fun while visiting this ice-filled water park located at Walt Disney World. Disney’s Blizzard Beach is filled with one-of-a-kind and unique attractions, fun for all ages. From the relaxing lazy river — Cross Country Creek — to the iconic Summit Plummet, there are a wide variety of experiences for everyone.

Last week, we reported that due to cold weather, Blizzard Beach would close for two consecutive days ahead of Thanksgiving, but the water park would reopen to Guests for the holiday on Thursday.

Though, despite reopening in time for the holiday, it seems Blizzard Beach was empty.

Bioreconstruct took to Twitter to share an aerial photo of Blizzard Beach’s wave pool on Thanksgiving, along with the caption:

Bioreconstruct also shared aerial photos of the water park as a whole, along with the caption:

Within all of these photos, you can see just how empty the water park is despite being the only water park open to Guests at this time. (Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon has not yet reopened since it closed last year due to the ongoing pandemic.)
