If you are looking for something “cool’’ to do this holiday season at Walt Disney World Resort, then you should consider a visit to Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park because the popular polar paradise reopens next month for the holiday season. And for the first time in forever, the water park will include touches from the popular Disney film Frozen.

When the wintry water park swings open its gates on Nov. 13, 2022 there will be plenty of arctic adventures, including wintry water attractions for everyone, frosty eats and treats and an atmosphere of glacial glee. As we like to say around here, there’s almost ‘snow’ better place to spend the day at Walt Disney World than at a water park!

Here are some of the best ways to chill out and enjoy Blizzard Beach’s return…

Frolic with Frozen friends at Tike’s Peak



A flurry of Frozen fun has come to Blizzard Beach and young ones can enjoy them among the kid-sized thrills of Tike’s Peak. Whether they are experiencing the miniature slides and attractions, splashing around in front of Anna and Elsa’s igloo castle or playing with Olaf and his Snowgie pals in the wading pool, this area is full of Frozen-themed fun for everyone!

Ring In the Holiday Season
