Owner description: "Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park, one of 2 Water Parks in Walt Disney World Resort, features one of the world's tallest and fastest free-falling waterslides, as well as slides and rides for the whole family—like a kid-sized, snow-castle fountain play area with scaled-down versions of the more thrilling attractions.

Bizarre design but somehow it works. Snow covered rocks and a ski chair-lift for lazy Americans who don't like stairs. Funny how the queues on Mount Gushmore reduce when the ski chair-lift stops! Free parking at the water parks is a bonus although they probably know they are almost guaranteed to get $15 out of you anyway on locker charges (with $5 returned for the key). You can take in your own cool box with refreshments if you want.

I don't moan about getting a bed or chair in the best spot as spend little time in it. Some good adrenalin moments doing Summit Plummet and the lesser Slush Gusher. Not quite the freefall it is painted out as for the first one but you certainly get the feeling of height. The wait is more nervey than the ride and big queues build so patience is required. Good mix of tube rides and ones using foam mats. You get the feeling the place was designed by architects who don't use the parks themselves as there was no quick route anywhere ... everything seemed to involve long walks.

I would recommend giving the Double Dipper a miss if the queues are 30 mins+, it is a VERY slow moving queue (feels a lot longer than the advertised time) for what is a 5 sec ride ... not worth the wait. The lazy river is a long ride that you can dip in or out of at various stops but a good chance to chill.

This one of the best if not the best water park I visited during our 12 days in Orlando.We have 3 kids 12,10and 5. They loved it. This park has some trill to its slides so if you want some trill it's a great park to visit. My suggestion is that you go early possibly at 10 am. Immediately find a good spot by the main pool and hold on to one or two sun beds. Then you could rent out a locker to keep any valuables safe. Now you are all set to travel around the park. Our five year old was able to ride on 90% of the slides , which made it ideal for the whole family. The environment as always in a Disney park is superb, water temperature is perfect as it is heated to the comfort zone. Wait in Sept is not an issue so most of the time the wait does not exceed 15 mins. Service you get from Disney staff is top notch as usual. Disney are truly one step ahead when it come to the overall service and customer experience. Can't say the same for the food offered in their parks which I feel is their weakness compared to other non Disney parks. One thing I suggest is that you buy is a water proof camera which you will find useful not only for this park but for most of the parks in Orlando.

We decided to break our Disney trip into sections. Park for 2 days, then a restful easy day at the water park this particular day. The water park was an enjoyable day. Got to ride the big family water slide with the big raft. My 4 year old loved it. The other water slides with just the mat that you ride on were a little rough. The place to get food, can't remember the name, quick service restaruant. It is just like any other quick service restaurant owned and operated by Disney. Same food, so shouldn't be any issuses there. All in all, this was an enjoyable place to visit to take a break. As in an earlier review, people at this waterpark don't understand the meaning of a lazy river!!!

Fantastic day in water. My 8 y/o dislikes any rides but considers this a ride so he wants a water park when we ask what rides he may want to go on. Have not gone to Disney 1/4 as much as we did because of this but look forward to hot day in cool water. Watch out for the ice cold water under the tunnel/cave area. The staff tries to "assist" you into the freezing water.
