Walt Disney World Confirms Water Parks Will Not Reopen Until 2021
Many, including us here at MickeyBlog.com, have been wondering when Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon will be reopening. Per an official statement from Disney, we have learned that one of the two Walt Disney World Water Parks will begin welcoming Guests again on March 7, 2021.
Here is the official statement from Walt Disney World about the Water Parks reopening in 2021:
With a phased approach to reopening, we have continued to welcome Guests and Cast Members back to our theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs area. While Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park remain closed at this time, pending state and local government approvals, we currently plan to reopen one of the two Disney water parks on March 7, 2021. We may adjust our proposed reopening date, and if that happens, we will let you know what to expect in a future update.
Like the other areas of Walt Disney World Resort, we will welcome back Guests and Cast Members to our water parks in a responsible way, with a plan focused on health and well-being. We will provide more details on our phased reopening plan, including a decision on the specific water park that will be reopening first, at a later time.
We realize that some Guests with existing tickets and some Annual Passholders are impacted by this update. We are offering options to Guests with an existing Premier Passport, Platinum Plus Pass, Water Parks Annual Pass, Water Parks After 2 Annual Pass or tickets that include the Park Hopper Plus Option or Water Park and Sports Option.
If your have a ticket that includes the Park Hopper Plus Option or Water Park & Sports Option, we are offering options including:
- Keep: You may use your current date-based ticket with the existing add-on options at other experiences available during your visit.
- Modify: Tickets, as well as Disney Resort hotel packages with tickets, may be modified.
- Cancel: If you do not want to use your ticket, you also have the option of cancelling the ticket or package.
At this time, Guests can purchase new tickets that include the Park Hopper Plus Option or Water Park and Sports Option for admission March 7 and later. We will resume sales of Water Park annual passes and 1-Day Water Park Tickets at a later date.
WATER PARK TICKETS
We will automatically extend unused, unexpired 1-Day Disney Water Park tickets through Dec. 31, 2021. As an alternative, Guests may instead choose to cancel their ticket. Also, if your are unable to visit by Dec. 31, 2021, you may apply the value of a wholly unused ticket toward the purchase of a ticket for a future date.
WATER PARK ANNUAL PASSES
