Disney World has announced that one of its water parks – either Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon – will reopen on March 7, 2021. The reopening is dependent on the company getting approvals from the government.
As with the reopening of the parks, Disney will focus on health and safety. It plans to provide more details on those operational changes, as well as which water park will reopen, at a later date.
The closure of Disney’s water parks impacted passholders including those holding the Premier Passport, the Platinum Plus Pass, the Water Parks Annual Pass, the Water Parks After 2 Annual Pass, as well as tickets that included the Park Hopper Plus Option or Water Park & Sports Option.
