    What is the best way to get to Blizzard Beach from the Contemporary Resort and will it be too cold for splashing around in early January? Thanks you.

    Hi Kaye,

    There is a bus that will take you directly from the Contemporary Resort to Blizzard Beach.  That's the fastest and easiest way to get there.

    Some years the temperatures can be really mild.  Coming from Washington you may think a dip in the pool sounds refreshing in January.  However, last year was a particularly cold winter, and I don't think even the northerners felt like heading to the water parks.  You'll really have to check the forecast before you leave to determine if Blizzard Beach is something you want to try.

    Blizzard Beach is closed for refurbishment from Sunday, January 16 through Saturday, March 26.  Typhoon Lagoon will still be open during this time.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
