AdventureContinuing my post last week regarding the water parks at Walt Disney World®, I would like to give some quick tips on what you should know before you head to Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park.

This neat water park makes you feel as if you are wandering about a ski resort with many Disney twists around every corner. Opening in April 1995, I remember visiting during the summer that year and overcoming my fear of what I thought were big waves at the time by swimming in the “Melt-Away Bay” wave pool.

Some important tips to know before heading to Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park are as follows:

  • Arrive to the water park 30-45 minutes prior to openingblizzard beach
  • Arriving early will ensure that you and your party are one of the first people in the water park to claim chairs
  • The water park has been known to reach capacity around lunchtime or mid-afternoon
  • If you have many belongings, store inside a locker! (Small Locker- $13, Large Locker- $15; You get $5 back when you return the key)
  • If you do not bring your own towels, you may rent one for $2
  • Life jackets are available for free at Snowless Joes with a personal ID and a $25 refundable deposit
  • Guests may bring food baskets
  • Coolers are permitted as long as they may be safely carried
  • Get the “Mini Donuts” located near Lottawatta Lodge! Trust me.
