Girl in Tike's Peak at Blizzard Beach

    Are there plans for Blizzard Beach to ever be open in April again? We were so disappointed this past April 2024 when it was closed. Typhoon Lagoon doesn't have the same feel, music , mood. We've been enjoying BB since 2013. Thanks.

    Hi there Anna, I'd like to wish you a watery welcome to planDisney!

    As I write to you from my beach lounger over at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, I can definitely see why longtime fans of the white, wintery ski resort aesthetic of Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park would feel a stark difference in the sunny, surf-music tropical vibes that currently surround me. You definitely don't get the same chorus of screaming that comes with each giant wave in the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool over in the gentle Melt-Away Bay, and nothing quite compares to the towering Summit Plummet either!

    Now while planDisney Panelists may have the ability to have early knowledge of upcoming updates and future offerings, I took this opportunity today to speak with the Cast Members around the attractions as well as over at Guest Relations and unfortunately, no one could quite say whether we can expect Disney's Blizzard Beach to be open once more in April or during the spring/summer months. They did note however that many of their Roles simply shifted over between Water Parks over the past two years (as one has closed as the other opened), which took place in November and March - effectively keeping Disney's Blizzard Beach open during the cooler months in line with its theming and visits from Santa while Disney's Typhoon Lagoon continues to dominate the hottest months of the year.

    Since we've also seen offerings and opening dates shift over time here at Walt Disney World Resort, there's no telling whether this could suddenly change. So while there might not be any answers available from Cast Members just yet, your best bet would be to keep a close eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news as it's officially announced, especially with new updates to Disney's Blizzard Beach in more recent years. 

    Here's hoping that you'll one day be able to make wintery splash once again on the slopes in April!
