Both Disney Water Parks to Remain Closed Until March 2021

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon

Disney Parks announced that both Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach will  remain closed now until March 7, 2021, about one year after they closed in March 2020.

The water parks closure update.

The water parks were staffed mainly with lifeguards from the DCP Program, which was abruptly canceled for Spring DCP participants in March 2020, and then canceled for Fall DCP participants in July 2020.  The DCP program is currently suspended with no recruitment going on for the Spring 2021 program.

Disney hopes to have at least one of the two water parks reopened on March 7th, 2021, pending government approval. At this time, it is unclear which of the two water parks Disney plans on reopening in March, but we think Typhoon Lagoon will reopen before Blizzard Beach.

We like Blizzard Beach, but love Typhoon Lagoon!

Typically, both parks close for months in the late fall/early winter on a staggered schedule for their annual refurbishment.  To have both water parks remain closed for an entire year is really unbelievable.  Meanwhile, Volcano Bay at Universal Studios Orlando is open.

Any unused and unexpired 1-Day Disney Water Park tickets will be automatically extended through December 31st, 2021. Guests may also choose to cancel their tickets in lieu of an extension. If a guest wishes the latter option, they are asked to call (407) 939-2732.

Annual Passholders who have water park admission as part of their pass will be refunded a pro rated amount of either $0.27 per day if they are a new Annual Passholder or $0.23 per day if they renewed their current Annual Pass.

As Disney World continues its phased reopening this year, a number of extended closures are still taking place. Extended closures included Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, which will remain closed until summer of 2021, and Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn which are also closed until further notice.

We’ve written two books about our time working – and playing – as Disney Cast Members at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

Both are available on in paperback and Kindle:  Two Girls and a Mouse Tale and Adventures in the Animal Kingdom.
