But there’s more to Walt Disney World Resort than the theme parks.

Disney World is also home to two world-class water parks at Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach.

Typhoon Lagoon several months ago after being closed for almost two years. As Disney Park prepares for summer crowds, it was recently announced that the beloved After-Hours H20 Glow Nights event will return to Typhoon Lagoon this summer. However, Disney remained silent on the status of Blizzard Beach.

Disney has announced a Blizzard Beach renovation that was originally scheduled to wrap up in March. However, the water park’s reopening date was later removed from Disney World’s website and its closure remains indefinite at this point.

Although there has been no update from Disney on the status of the water park, we can share that a permit was recently filed for provide labour, material and/or electrical work for the construction at Blizzard Beach. While the description of what will happen during this ongoing renovation is vague, another permit filed indicates that the closure will be extended even longer.

by Disney current statement about Blizzard Beach reads:

Like other areas of Walt Disney World Resort, we are once again welcoming Guests and Cast Members to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park responsibly, with a plan focused on health and wellness.
