Nope. I'm not disappointed. But I don't know how to swim. And don't like taking my shirt off in public.

Is anyone else disappointed they're closing Blizzard beach 3 weeks early! I'm not sure if the 'water parks & more' feature is worth it for our stay now. What do you guys think?

Huh. Must not have been paying attention.

They usually flip flop the refurbs. Blizzard first, then Typhoon. Following year is Typhoon, then Blizzard.

I think this is relating to the refrub, not the annual closure of the water parks.

When did they reverse it? Typhoon was always closed in December and Blizzard in January. No biggie to me, just curious why the schedule change.

All they will tell you dates are subject to change without notice.

Is this now a definite date? We booked our trip specifically to make sure we caught Blizzard Beach open (never been to that park before) so more than a little frustrated! Where can I find out why it has moved?

Money savings or perhaps a place to put the 50ft elsa statue

Hmmm. Wonder what they discovered.
