PHOTOS: Disney’s Blizzard Beach Reopens with New Physical Distancing Guidelines, Covered Seating, Self-Rapid Refills, and More
After a lengthy closure, Disney’s Blizzard Beach has reopened today. The weather is great with clear skies, making it a perfect day for a visit to the water park.
When entering the parking lot, Cast Members direct guests where to park in a distanced-fashion.
Walking up to the main entrance, an A-frame sign encourages guests to scan a QR code to purchase a 1-day water park ticket.
Of course, as with the Walt Disney World theme parks, there is a temperature check station before entering the water park. Physical distancing ground markers lead the way to the tents as another A-frame sign reminds guests to maintain physical distancing at a minimum of six feet.
As it is reopening day after all, guests are made aware of that media activity will be taking place in the water park.
More physical distancing markers lead the way to the entrance where Cast Members will scan guests in.
Once inside, even more signage greets guests. This sign encourages guests to scan the QR code to place a mobile order for food. Lottawatta Lodge, Avalunch, and Warming Hut currently have mobile ordering available.
As expected, COVID-19 Safety Protocol Signage is seen throughout Disney’s Blizzard Beach. This one reminds guests of the protocol for wearing face masks on Walt Disney World property: they must be worn over the nose and mouth at all times, including when taking photographs. There are also plenty of hand sanitizer stations set up around the water park.
Speaking of which, further signage describing proper wear for face coverings and health recommendations are also seen outside of the restrooms and dressing rooms in addition to hand sanitizer being available for guests.
More physical distancing markers guide guests to Frostbite Freddy’s.
To further encourage physical distancing efforts, every other locker is blocked off for rental.
A new photo opportunity with a family of snowmen is now available. Guests can put their mobile device on the “Selfie Ski” for the perfect angle.
At Lottawatta Lodge, additional signs on trashcans remind guests that face coverings are required in this area. Other areas in which face coverings are required include the park entry and exit, all merchandise locations, all food and beverage locations, and locker, restroom, and changing areas.
