Blizzard Beach Reopening at Walt Disney World Resort on November 13th with New “Frozen” Features

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is reopening at Walt Disney World Resort on November 13, 2022. When it reopens, guests will be able to enjoy this water park with some new Frozen features inspired by the popular Walt Disney Animation Studios film.

These new Frozen features will be found at Tike’s Peak, an area geared towards younger guests. There, Olaf and his Snowgie pals will be found in the warm wading pool, along with Anna and Elsa’s igloo castle.

Bizzard Beach offers heated water throughout the park and will also have some additions for the holidays. There will be limited-time holiday offerings through December 31, 2022. This will include holiday-themed treats, snowfall, and also festive inner trubes. Guests will also be able to meet Santa Claus, who will be dressed appropriately and tropically for the season and location.

When guests return, some popular attractions and features will be ready for them. This includes the slushy and slippery ski jumps to the bobsled and toboggan runs and the play spaces for the whole family. Some favorites that Walt Disney World highlighted include:

  • Summit Plummet is one of the tallest, fastest freefall body slides around. The heart-pumping attraction plunges guests down Mount Gushmore in a near vertical drop and rockets them into a darkened tunnel. It’s an attraction made especially for thrill-seekers! 
  • Teamboat Springs is one of the world’s longest group whitewater raft adventures, where up to six riders can take an epic and unpredictable whitewater journey down a mountain. 
  • Toboggan Racers is a unique attraction where guests use a mat to compete in a thrilling race downhill on an eight-lane slalom-style waterslide.  
  • Cross Country Creek is a scenic lazy river that takes guests on arctic adventure gliding through mysterious caves, illuminated grottoes and bask in Mount Gushmore’s refreshing spring water throughout polar paradise.  
  • Runoff Rapids offers a choice of three distinctly different inner-tube waterslides, where guests twist and turn down an adrenaline-filled trip down Mount Gushmore. 

There will also be popular food and beverage options returning. There will also be new Frozen-themed menu items available. Some returning popular sweet and savory snacks include the Earidescent Ice Dream Cone, 50th Ice Dream Sand Pail Sundae and Walt’s Chili Nachos. They will be found at various dining locations throughout the water park.

There are also some adult beverage offerings like the Orange Slope DOLE Whip Swirl at the Warming Hut. There also the Red Slope Bloody Mary at Frostbite Freddy’s or the Melt-A-Way Margarita at Polar Pub.

About Disney’s Blizzard Beach

As the legend goes, Disney’s Blizzard Beach was once Florida’s first ski-resort after a blizzarding winter storm hit Walt Disney World Resort. Yet, before the skiers could strap on their boots, sunny Florida weather returned and powdery snow quickly turned to slippery slush. Bobsled and toboggan runs became downhill waterslides; a creek of melted mountain snow became a relaxing tube ride; and the chairlift now carries swimmers instead of skiers. Full of plenty of icy architecture and water-ful attractions, the water park’s snowy atmosphere amid the warm temperatures of Florida continues to bring guests back to the winter wonderland year after year.
