Ice Cool Fun
Disney storytellers share the tale of a freak snowstorm that hit Florida, whereupon the world’s most unique ski resort was built. When Florida’s normal sunny temperatures returned, the snowy ski lodge transformed into a watery wonderland, creating Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park at Walt Disney World Resort in the process!
Accordingly, former ski slopes and toboggan runs can be enjoyed as slushy, downhill waterslides, while the chairlift transports swimmers and sliders instead of skiers. And despite the wintery setting, the water’s always warm at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park.
Besides an imaginative setting, the park offers thrills and relaxation in equal measure. For the former, test your mettle on Summit Plummet and its near-vertical, 120-foot drop. More fast times await on the 90-foot Slush Gusher, the competitive Downhill Double Dipper and a trio of 350-foot slides at Snow Stormers. For the ultimate challenge, head to the top of the water park’s centerpiece, Mount Gushmore, for high-speed action at Runoff Rapids.
When you’re ready to slow down, take a 40-minute tour of the 3,000-foot-long lazy river, Cross Country Creek, or chill out at Melt-Away Bay. And if you’re with kids, they’re sure to enjoy Tike’s Peak and Ski Patrol Training Camp.
It all adds up to one of the world’s “coolest” water parks, literally! See below for more details, and experience Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park for yourself during your next visit to Orlando.

Downhill Double Dippe
Unleash your competitive side on side-by-side waterslides, where you can race friends and family at epic speeds.

Flags mark your course and your time will be displayed on an overhead digital stop clock, just like in a downhill ski race. Check out the stop clock to find out who’s the winner!
