Slip Slidin' Away to Blizzard Beach

Disney legend has it that after a freak winter storm blanketed the area with snow, a team of astute real estate developers decided they had the opportunity to open Florida's first (and only)ski resort. When temperatures returned to normal, the powdery snow turned to slippery slush. Not to be deterred, the developers (spying an alligator sliding down the slopes) turned lemons into lemonade and transformed their ski resort into Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park, the coolest water park anywhere! Slalom courses, bobsled and toboggan runs became downhill waterslides. The chairlift carried swimmers instead of skiers. The ski jump became the tallest, fastest water slide in the nation.


• Head to the top of Mount Gushmore to ride Summit Plummet — the 120-foot tall freefall slide and reach speeds up to 60 mph.
• Eight racers go side-by-side on Toboggan Racers
• Blizzard Beach has not one but 2 kids’ areas— Tike’s Peak, where little dippers will find a kid-size version of the park; and Ski Patrol Training Camp, an area designed specifically for preteens.

Disney water parks are a great way to cool off all year long, but especially during the summer months. And, Blizzard Beach has also been ranked as the one of the top extreme water parks in the country by the Travel Channel.
