    are the water parks open in january?

    Hi Clementina!

    When I first moved to Orlando I remember telling my family, "I don't care how warm it is in January, I am NOT wearing shorts and sandals! I want four seasons of clothes!" But of course, when January rolled around, I was more than happy to don my shorts and sandals! There is nothing like winter in Florida---because there is NOTHING like winter in Florida! :)

    So, to answer your question (oops, I got carried away), yes, there is usually at least one water park open during the winter. They will close for refurbishment in the winter but usually just one at a time. So, as your trip gets closer, continue to check the website for specific hours and closings. Here's the calendar for Blizzard Beach and the calendar for Typhoon Lagoon.

    If you go to Blizzard Beach take an hour or two to do the Winter Summerland Mini Golf, it's so fun!
