While the Walt Disney World theme parks reopened back in July, the two water parks remain closed. That will all change on March 7, which is when Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park will welcome guests once again! There is still no official word on when Typhoon Lagoon will reopen.
Water park tickets are for sale once again. You can purchase a one day ticket for $69 plus tax for those ten and older. Ages three through nine cost $63 per ticket, and kids under three are free. This is for a ticket with no blockout dates. If your dates are a little more flexible, you might want to save a few dollars and purchase a ticket that has blockout dates. That ticket will not work May 29 through October 3, but you’ll save $5 on your ticket. All water park tickets are good through December 31, 2021.
It does not look like reservations will be required to visit a Disney Water Park, but there will still be capacity limits. Capacity at the water parks is nothing new, people are often turned away on a hot day in the middle of July. I’d recommend arriving early to secure your spot.
Safety protocols will be in place. In addition to capacity limits, these include temperature screenings and face coverings. Disney has not yet stated how face coverings will work at the water parks.
It looks like the initial hours of operation will be 11:00-6:00. That could change, but I have a feeling that it won’t. Hours are only listed into part of April right now anyway. If I had to guess (pure speculation on my part) Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon will not both be operating at any point this year. Remember, each October in a normal year, one of the two parks will close for refurbishment, and then several weeks later they will switch. My guess is that Typhoon Lagoon will reopen in October, and Blizzard Beach will close for refurbishment. If I’m right, both parks won’t be open at the same time until March of 2022.
