Blizzard Beach is one of two water parks at Walt Disney World® Resort. A water park with a difference, Disney's Blizzard Beach is the perfect way to cool off in the Florida sun without letting the fun end. Thrill-seekers can enjoy one of the fastest and tallest water slides in the world and there are tamer attractions for the younger children or those with less of a head for heights!
A park with a unique concept, like with everything Disney does there is a story behind Blizzard Beach water park. The legend has it that after a freak snow-storm Orlando is covered with snow and the excited residents build their own ski-resort. However this being Orlando, the snow melts nearly as quickly as it came. Lucky then that a clever alligator (who is now the patron of the park) had the idea to turn the resort in to a water park with a ski theme!
All rides at Disney’s Blizzard Beach ascend the cleverly named Mount Gushmore. There are 3 slopes on Mount Gushmore; the Green slope is where you will find Summit Plummet (one of the worlds fastest and tallest water slides) as well as Teamboat Springs – which recreates the experience of white-water-rafting. The Purple slope includes Double Downhill Dipper which offers a side-by-side racing slide for excitement with a competitive edge and Snow Stormers, a mat slide through a ski slalom-like course. An 8-lane toboggan race track water slide will also keep you busy! Lastly the Red Slope contains the multi-slide Runoff Rapids which has 3 600ft slides.
Visit the Ground level, which contains Melt Away Bay, a huge wave pool at the base of Mount Gushmore. The Cross Country Creek (essentially a lazy-river) allows a relaxing ride around most of the park. As well as all of these incredible rides and areas, Disney's Blizzard Beach offers restaurants including Frostbite Freddies and Lottawatta Lodge.
