Disney's Blizzard Beach water park looks set for a late October 2022 reopening at Walt Disney World.

The latest Walt Disney World operating calendar only lists Typhoon Lagoon hours through October 29 2022, with hours for all other parks released through November 5.

A reopening of Blizzard Beach on October 30 would likely see Typhoon Lagoon then close for its annual refurbishment.

Disney has yet to announce a date for Blizzard Beach reopening or a closure of Typhoon Lagoon for refurbishment.

Blizzard Beach is currently being refurbished, including slide replacement at the family Team Boat Springs raft ride, and a slide conveyor belt lift at the Runaway Rapids slides.

Disney's water parks have been significantly impacted by the pandemic closure in 2020, with only one water park operating at a time since reopening.

Disney's Blizzard Beach reopened on March 7 2021, welcoming guests back after a near year-long closure due to the pandemic. Blizzard Beach later closed on January 3 2022, with Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park reopening after an almost two-year closure due to the COVID pandemic.

It's Disney, they could put on a white Christmas if there were enough bucks to be made. They used to do things just to show they could.....

For some reason, I initially read this as a joke– BLIZZARD Beach closed due to low temperatures! Get it?

Blizzard Beach will be closed over the upcoming holiday weekend, December 23-25, due to forecasted low temperatures.

I wish they would stop shoehorning unconnected IPs. Frozen doesn't belong.

I know that one.... The frame is plumbed to be filled with LN2 so when the wet tubes run up it drips and freezes. Like the saying goes don't judge until it is open ;) :angelic::hilarious:

People aren’t going to like the new lift. I can see that there will be complaints about it. I saw it recently in passing by the property.
