Family Favorite
Aug 2020
This was our favorite waterpark in Orlando, and there are many great waterparks there. We loved the assortment of slides from winding to extreme drops, and the wave pool was a lot of fun between rides. The food and drink were great for an amusement park and we didn't have any trouble finding chases to relax on.

Very impressed
Jul 2021
Even though I read the comments about Typhoon Lagoon being bigger, this was plenty big. Since I don't do the big slides, the lazy river & wave pool was perfect for me. According to some reviews Blizzard Beach has the biggest water slide & it goes straight down with a few dips along the way. I loved, loved, loved how there were many trees & roofs over a lot of the chairs providing much needed shade from the hot Florida sun in July. The place was quite crowded & I'm thinking the day before, it rained all day so it was probably people from 2 days. I too think the locker rentals for $12 & $15 are outrageous! The food was expensive also at $13.49 for a hot dog & chips. I only saw bottled water & alcoholic drinks, no soft drinks. Maybe at the bigger restaurant they had them but the little ones only had bottled water for $3.49. However, this is in line with all of the Disney parks being super expensive for food & drinks. I can't imagine how a family can afford this at $70 for 4 hot dogs & 4 drinks for lunch! Since Walt wanted this to be a place that a family could afford, I think he would be very disappointed. I'm thinking these prices make up for the free parking which draws people to the Disney Water parks instead of the competitors where parking is $25. I was with a friend of mine & she & I had a wonderful time.

Good Ole Fashioned Water Park
Jul 2021
I would say this is a classic old fashioned water park. My family liked it better than Universal’s Volcano Bay. This is old school in the sense that you likely carry your raft to the top or partial way. We barely waited to get onto anything enabling us to ride multiple times whatever we wanted. What I loved about the lazy river are all the exit points around the park. We also reserved a cabana which was quite nice. Let me warn you though, the storage at the cabana is a little nook; big enough for perhaps keys, cell phones and perhaps a wallet. I would say the cabana was indeed worth it for us. Chairs were comfortable and our attendant, Laura was fantastic even though we didn’t ask her for anything. This was our first trip and likely not our last! We now want to try Typhoon Lagoon! By far, worth it. One add regarding the ice cream “Sand Pail”. Please note it’s soft serve ice cream which melted faster than we could eat it. So can’t say I would order it again. This concept would work far better with scooped ice cream perhaps.

Always fun!
Jun 2021 • Friends
Although my favourite is Typhoon Lagoon we went here as it has been many years since we had been and Typhoon was closed. Did not disappoint. Although extremely expensive (large locker rental is $15) there is something for everyone. Did all the slides except for the drop of doom (or whatever it is called) as I had a nasal enema and wedgie from a previous tube slide. Also did the lazy River. We got there for when it opened as we know that in Florida it can rain any minute. So managed to be there for about 5 hours and had lunch before the thunderstorm shut it down and we opted just to leave at that point.

The only downside is we had put our towels and hats on two loungers at the beach near the water and a couple of really ignorant women were sitting right on our chairs when there were plenty of others available. No point making a scene so just grabbed our stuff and walked away. But there are jerky people everywhere you go.

Almost Brrrrrrilliant!
Jun 2021
We enjoyed our time at Blizzard Beach. I hadn't been since I was a child, so it was nice to see it as an adult. We went on Wednesday with pretty average crowd levels I would assume. Here is a quick overview of our experience on a few key features:

Attractions: We rode most of the waterslides in the park. We especially enjoyed the mat slides. It was fun to take the chair lift up to the slides! I will say that the "Slush Gusher" body slide was not suited to anyone above 200 pounds. It was uncomfortably fast at that weight. The ride wait times were varied with some slides being a walk-on and some like the family raft ride being over 30 minutes in the hot sun. I would say the park could use a few more larger family attractions to meet demand.

Food and Drink: On this topic, I would say the drinks far outweighed the food. The drinks were fun and refreshing, but the food was below average Disney quality. This may have been our error for going to an auxiliary food stand ("The Warming Hut") and not to the main quick-service restaurant. We had churros and loaded tater tots. They were just okay.

Environment: The beach area and wave pool were nice. Not too crowded but certainly not empty. Some of the areas could use an update, but it seems like the park has been well maintained since the late 90s. There were a lot of cute theming details that I appreciated. I definitely think they should bring back Ice Gator as their mascot.

Merchandise: We left with a towel and a tank top. The merchandise was mostly standard Disney stuff and not a lot of Blizzard Beach branded items. I really think they are downplaying this property for some reason. I want a "Joe Blow Snow Co." T-shirt! I hope they continue to update it since this the only Disney waterpark that is open right now.

Disney Blizzard Beach Patio and our Host Ashlee, Thank you!
May 2021
We purchased tickets for our family of 9 for Blizzard Beach. We had always went to Typhoon Lagoon. This was our first visit. We also purchased the Polar Ice Patio for our family as well. We were all wonderfully pleased by our day. We had Ashlee as our attendant for the Patio. It was AMAZING service. She was the perfect host all day long. She took care of all of our questions regarding the rides and the food and the drinks. She took our orders and delivered perfectly everything we needed for the day. We were so pleased to have her as our host. The food we had at the patio was amazing. We had the chicken rice bowls as well as the pizzas. The kids loved their pizza and the adults enjoyed the vegetables and chicken. It was delicious, served hot and when we requested they be delivered. The drinks were served cold and refilled many times throughout the day. We felt like we were given full attention and for the price we paid for the patio, it was well worth the price. Difficult to find in these days and especially at Disney. We were all pleased! Thank you Disney and especially to Ashlee for giving us a day for our family for the memory book.

Mixed feelings
May 2021
I have mixed feelings as I write this review. As of late I can't help but think Disney in general has lost some of its magic. The prices seem ridiculously high, the service is up and down, and it can feel boring because the seldom add attractions when compared with some of their competitors. However I do really enjoy the Disney waterparks. They are never as overcrowded as some of the competitors water parks, they have rides for everyone and so as I said I am torn. My most recent visit I was happy that the park seemed to be doing a good job of keeping guest safe by having social distancing. There were a few times where people were a bit crowded but more the exception than the rule. I also was happy that as you enter the bathrooms they had people put on mask as consistent with CDC guidelines recommending you wear mask in doors. I am happy they seem to be staying up to date on the latest COVID recommendations which makes me feel safe to visit the park, but do admit some of that old Disney charm is missing. Please add some attractions and give the water parks and theme parks the tlc they deserve. Also get back to that old Disney service that made the company so great to visit.

How can this be Disney?
Mar 2020
Very unkept grounds. Leaves and sticks all over grounds and all through the wave pool and lazy river. My son got bit by a snake. Will never go back.
