Disney’s Blizzard Beach Closed November 5-6, 2021 Due to Weather

A cold front moving through Central Florida has forced a temporary closure of Walt Disney World’s Blizzard Beach water park for November 5 and 6, 2021 due to low temperatures. The weekend’s weather forecast calls for lows in the 50s and rain for most of the day, so while not ideal conditions for hitting up the wave pool or Summit Plummet at Blizzard Beach, the rest of the Walt Disney World Resort is set to be open with the exception of smaller temporary closures due to weather (things like outdoor performances, merchandise carts, etc…)

Blizzard Beach

Currently Blizzard Beach is the only water park operating at the Walt Disney World Resort, as Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon has been closed since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020 and it has yet to reopen. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon appears to be getting closer to the possibility of reopening as pools have been filled in and maintenance on the park looks to be taking place, but Disney has not released any information on the current state of the park or a timeline for reopening.

Typically one Walt Disney World water park at a time is closed for refurbishment during the winter months, so this practice combined with increased staffing returning to the property might poise Typhoon Lagoon for a reopening during Blizzard Beach’s annual refurbishment but Disney has not commented on if this process will continue the same way this winter.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach is listed on Walt Disney World’s website and the My Disney Experience app as reopening following this short closure on November 7, 2021 however with a high of 69 degrees and a low of 53 currently we would not be surprised if the closure ran an additional day. If you are planning on visiting Blizzard Beach this week, we recommend keeping an eye on the weather and the My Disney Experience app.
