Disney's Blizzard Beach

The largest waterpark at the Walt Disney World Resort borrows its theme as Florida's first ski resort after a freak snowstorm hit the area. Most of the attractions at Disney's Blizzard Beach are located atop Mount Gushmore, a 220-foot tall man-made hill, that just happens to be the 5th highest point in Florida.

The summit can be reached on foot or by taking a chairlift ride. Once on top there are a variety of ways to get down, ranging from body slides to tube slides to the amazing Summit Plummet, a high-speed speed slide with 12-story descent at a near-vertical angle. It's one of the tallest, fastest freefall body slides in the world.

Families and friends can also make the descent from Mount Gushmore together while riding Teamboat Springs, the world's longest group whitewater raft ride.

At the base of the mountain Disney's Blizzard Beach offers guests the chance to soak up the sun on the beach, chill out and float in tubes on the Cross Country Creek lazy river, ride the surf in Melt-Away Bay a giant one-acre wave pool, or participate in water activities at the Ski Patrol Training Camp. For preschoolers and little kids, Tike's Peak, is a polar-themed water play area with kid-sized versions of some of the water park's larger attractions.

Disney's Blizzard Beach water park amenities include a variety of food & beverage options, snack concessions, locker and towel rentals, and changing rooms.
