    Planning to go to blizzard beach in the next week. They don’t take advance reservations. How early do we need to be there to get in? Also if the park closes because of weather, can we get a refund?

    Hi Ann! Welcome to planDisney!

    A day at Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park sounds amazing right now! The last time my family visited this water park we had a splash-tastic time. My favorite memory was getting my husband to conquer Summit Plummet. I went first, knowing that he is super competitive and would have to follow me. It brings a smile to my face as I remember the look on his face! It was priceless!

    Currently, Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park is open from 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM (times subject to change). I suggest getting there a little before it opens to give you time to park and enter the water park as soon as it opens so you can get in as much time as possible! With Walt Disney World theme park reservations becoming more available, the water park is less likely to reach capacity. I've only heard of one day that it closed due to capacity since its reopening, and I don't anticipate that arriving for the water park's opening would put you in danger of that scenario.

    In general, Walt Disney World theme park and water park tickets are non-refundable. The value of your unused ticket can usually be applied to a later date if needed. The good news about weather in Florida is that the storms don't usually stick around all day, so if you do run into bad weather, it will probably clear up after a little bit!

    I hope you have a wonderful visit, Ann! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
