Blizzard Beach, the ski resort themed water park at Walt Disney World, closed for an extended refurbishment last September. The refurbishment was originally set to conclude on January 13th, but has since been extended past that date.
The refurbishment is now set to be completed by January 18th, with the water park reopening to guests on January 19th. Typhoon Lagoon will then close for its annual refurbishment.
Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach close every year in the winter for refurbishments during the cold weather season when water park demand is low. However, Disney has stated that this refurbishment will include “additional refurbishment work and enhancements” above the normal work. Water slide parts––reportedly for Summit Plummet––were recently seen staged at the parking lot of Blizzard Beach.
