Disney has taken a very careful and thought out approach to the reopening phases of Walt Disney World. This afternoon Disney released an update on the current status of both Walt Disney World waterparks.
Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park have remained closed due to pending state and local government approvals. However, they have announced a plan to reopen one of the two Disney water parks on March 7, 2021. This is a “proposed” reopening date and they may adjust it if needed.
“Like the other areas of Walt Disney World Resort, we will welcome back Guests and Cast Members to our water parks in a responsible way, with a plan focused on health and well-being. We will provide more details on our phased reopening plan, including a decision on the specific water park that will be reopening first, at a later time.”- Disney Parks
