PHOTOS - Aerial views of Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon as both remain closed

Aerial views of Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon during COVID-19 closure

Despite the phased reopening of the four main Walt Disney World theme parks that began in mid-July, the water parks remain closed.

Disney has said that its priority is on reopening the main parks, and that currently the water parks will remain closed with no date yet for a reopening.

Blizzard Beach was planned to begin its annual refurbishment from September 13 2020.

Water parks obviously present a challenging environment with physical distancing and mask requirements, particularly in the event of afternoon storms that have traditionally required guests to take shelter in tight quarters under cover.

"According to the Walt Disney World website, Chefs de France will reopen on October 8th for the lunch and dinner periods. There are no times currently listed on the Disney World website for any dates before October 8th." https://t.co/Jj9CddujXU?amp=1

That happens a lot even just with regular products that are able to be purchased cheaply....household goods, etc.

That's true also. Some savvy Brazil travelers even go to the Orlando outlets and buy in bulk then ship the products to Brazil for resale.

So is there a composite of average wait times across the days of the week? Seems like Saturdays/Sundays are by far the busiest but wanted to see which weekdays are usually the best to visit on

What's going on October 9-16 that DHS is blocked out to resort guests and ticket holders? But AP holders have availability at all parks October 13-15? I've never seen that before.

The people from the UK were well represented at the outlets as well. Talked to a couple that did the math to find the prices were a bargain for them even with the cost of getting it back.

Without the South American tourists ( i e. Brazil ) the Orlando outlet malls are not even worth operating. Most of their business is from them.

The Vineland outlet opened today.

Mrs. rowrbazzle took our daughter a couple years ago. She was just shy of her 3rd birthday so she was free. That seemed like a decent deal. Of course, our little girl was more interested in eating and coloring than taking pictures with the princesses (she feigned a swing at Aurora with her wand) so it wasn't quite the magical breakfast we envisioned. 😄 Maybe the two of them would go again sometime. Maybe. I don't see us ever forking over money for the whole family, though. I just can't stomach spending that much on a meal at Disney.
