    Hi moms! Coming April 2018. Any info on when blizzard beach will reopen? We did typhoon lagoon last trip so wanted to try the other one. Also, any resort restaurant suggestions? Other than the usuals, ohana, chef mickeys, etc looking for new. Thanks!!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa!

    I have good news for you! It looks like Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park is set to reopen January 6, 2018, well before you arrive. So, you’ll get to enjoy all the splash-tastic times to be had at this aquatic winter wonderland! Disney’s Blizzard Beach is my son’s favorite water park! It has all his favorite water slides. I especially love the family raft ride, Teamboat Springs. It’s a wild and crazy ride for the entire family to enjoy!

    As far as new restaurants, gosh, this is tricky! There are so many great ones to try! My husband and I tried Boma Flavors of Africa for the first time recently and it instantly became a new favorite. If you haven’t been, I can’t recommend it enough. Be sure to try the zebra domes for dessert. YUM! Another new-to-us favorite is Biergarten Restaurant at Epcot in the Germany Pavilion. It’s not only super tasty, but it’s a blast! With live music and a dance floor for the kids to have fun, this restaurant is an experience! Last but not least, Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is a blast! Literally! With loud and fun servers and tasty meals, this one is another hit with my crew. Be sure to ask for ketchup!

    I hope this information is helpful as you continue planning your magical visit. Be sure to come back and visit us again soon! 

    TTFN, ta ta for now,
