Cast members can get into the two WDW Disney water parks – Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon – for free – until December 31st! No additional blockout days are planned for this year. You can also buy 1/2 price tickets ($28.50) for family and friends at the gate. Cast members must be with guests.
The water parks are scheduled to close for an extended periods for their annual refurbishments:
Blizzard Beach will be closed for its annual refurbishment October 28, 2018 through January 5, 2019.
Typhoon Lagoon will close for its annual refurbishment on January 6, 2019. The refurbishment is planned to continue through to March 17th, reopening to guests on March 18, 2019.
At Typhoon Lagoon, the new Miss Adventure Falls ride is open! Guests LOVE it!

Sun’s out, guns out!
Let’s go!!!! 🙂
Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon (our favorite!) are open daily.
The water park’s hours are currently from 10am – 8pm daily.
CM Tip #1: The water parks do close for the daily afternoon thunderstorms, so always check before you go! If the thunderstorms happen too close to closing, the water parks just close for the day and don’t reopen.
CM Tip #2: The water on the rides is not heated! Some guests think the water is a little too “refreshing”! [Note: Both water parks were closed due to cold weather for several days in January, February, and March of this year when the daily temperature was below 65 degrees. The cast members working there were temporarily re-deployed to other Park locations. Expect some closure days in late December due to cold weather at Typhoon Lagoon.]

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
