If you have been in the Orlando area throughout the past weekend, you may have noticed a chill in the air. Now that all of the Disney World Parks are decorated for the Christmas holidays, it seems that the cooler air is much more fitting for a full day of walking around the Park, but not so much for diving into the water!

Blizzard Beach may be themed to a snowy ski Resort but pairs much nicer with the Florida sun than the cooler months of the year. Of course, the weather in Florida can jump from cooler weather right back to blistering heat, so the time of year does not always necessarily mean cold weather. That being said, when the temperature drops, Disney may choose to close their water parks due to low attendance.

We recently saw Universal Orlando Resort do this for Volcano Bay, and since Friday, Blizzard Beach has remained closed. The weather in Orlando has been averaging in the high 60’s low 70’s over the past few days, with heavy rain hitting on Friday and blustering winds on Saturday.

Now, it seems that today’s continued cooler temperatures which will dip into the 50’s have caused Blizzard Beach to remain closed. According to Blizzard Beach’s section on the Walt Disney World website, the Park should be open tomorrow from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., but of course, be sure to check the website each day when there is cooler weather or inclement weather to be sure that you do not show up to a closed-down Park.

If the Park is closed, do not fret! You can still use the pool at your Disney Resort if you are craving some splash action. Aside from that, Guests will still have four amazing theme parks to utilize while Blizzard Beach remains closed. Also, to note, Typhoon Lagoon continues to remain closed at this time.
