Many people have been wondering when Disney will begin reopening their water parks. Disney has now officially released the opening date for one of their family-friendly water parks, Blizzard Beach. Disney has announced that although Typhoon Lagoon will remain closed at this time, Blizzard Beach will be open again as of March 7, 2021.
Walt Disney World has two water parks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Both parks have been closed since March 2020. Although the theme parks have been open in Florida since July 2020, the water parks have not yet opened until now. Keep reading to see the health and safety protocols Disney will be employing when Blizzard Beach reopens.
Health & Safety Protocols for Disney Water Parks
Disney has also released their health and safety protocols that will be implemented when the water park reopens. Similarly to the theme parks, Blizzard Beach will be operating at a reduced capacity and those entering the park will need to have face coverings on and their temperature taken before entering.
Masks will be required for all guests age 2 and older for areas such as the entrance and exit or when shopping or purchasing food. However, guests will not be allowed to wear face masks when in the water or on water slides. Also, masks can be removed when eating and drinking while stationary as with the other Disney parks.
Also, unlike the theme parks, there is no reservation requirement for Blizzard Beach. However, that may change due to the capacity limits.
