    Hi we’re going to wdw in December of this year and we bought the park hopper plus tickets that include a water park. But what happens when neither of the 2 water parks is open when we go?

    Hiya Melissa,

    Thanks for stopping back at planDisney. It looks like you will be celebrating the holidays in the most magical way - with a trip to Walt Disney World Resort! The holiday season is my absolute favorite time of the yEAR to visit the theme parks and Disney Resorts Collection hotels. With all the seasonal events, entertainment, treats and decorations, it is impossible not to feel the magic of the holiday every where you look! 

    Great choice on your ticket selection. The Park Hopper Plus Option will allow you to not only visit the theme parks but also provide you the chance to enjoy from a variety of other activities like miniature golf or time at the water park. While Disney's Blizzard Beach is currently closed for refurbishment, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon is open and ready for plenty of splashin' and floatin'. While the average temperature in December is typically on the cooler side, falling in the mid 70's most days, the water is heated and you should be able to enjoy the water park with no worries. 

    In the event you hit an extremely cold stretch or inclement weather causes the water park to close, the good news is your ticket option can still be used to enjoy a number of other activities. This includes playing a round or two of golf at Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course or testing your skills at two miniature golf courses, Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf or (our favorite) Disney's Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course. As a reminder, theme park reservations are not needed for the water park. This means if the sun breaks through and the temperatures start to rise, you can always decide at the last minute to head over to tackle the Crush 'n' Gusher

    Remember to pack the sunscreen. Even on those cool days, that Florida sun can sneak up on you. If I can help with any additional planning questions, please stop back and see me

    Wishing you plenty of sunshine and waves,
