    We’re about 6 months out from our Disney World trip. Since we are starting to be able to see the park hours for our trip, we noticed there are no hours for Blizzard Beach for the week we are going. Does that mean it’s going down for refurbishment that week

    Hello there Brandon! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for swimming by with your question about one of my favorite topics: Walt Disney World's water parks! 

    The Disney Water Parks are a splash-tacular way to cool down during your vacation. My family enjoys visiting both Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon each year. I checked out the Park Hours calendar, and it looks like operating hours for all theme parks and water parks are only posted through the first week of September at this time. Generally park hours are posted approximately six months in advance, so check back soon for updated hours for your vacation dates. This calendar also displays any theme parks or attractions that are not operational on specific dates.

    Typically Disney will close one water park at a time during colder months for routine maintenance, but I predict you will be able to experience the frosty fun of Blizzard Beach in September, typically a warm month in Florida. In the past, seasonal water park closures have occurred between October and March. Last year, Blizzard Beach closed for an extended refurbishment beginning September 8, 2019, but this was out of the ordinary. Keep your eyes on the Disney Parks Blog and Park Hours calendar for updates. 

    I hope this helps as you continue to play your itinerary for this fall. Don't forget to check out exciting seasonal events occurring throughout the Walt Disney World Resort during your visit. You may want to have a spook-tacular evening at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or sample tasty treats from around the world at the EPCOT® International Food & Wine Festival. If you need anything else as your adventure approaches, please stop back and see us again; it would be our pleasure to assist you.

    Just keep swimming!
