The recently reopened winter-themed water wonderland at Walt Disney World Resort has plenty of adventures to enjoy in the Florida sun with water attractions for guests of all ages – and there’s no better time than now to enjoy it all!

So, trade your ugly sweaters for swimsuits as we’re sharing some of the most popular ways to celebrate the holidays at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park:

Meet & Greet with Santa at Blizzard Beach

Although it’s his busiest time of the year, Santa Claus is making special appearances at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, dressed in his tropical best, to send warm holiday wishes to all guests. To say hello, stop by Sonny’s Sleds (near the park’s main entrance) from park open – 12:30pm each day through Dec. 24, 2023.

Delicious Seasonal Treats

Feel the holiday cheer with limited-time food & beverage offerings such as the Peppermint Milkshake, available at Lottawatta Lodge.

Festive Floating Down Castaway Creek

What better way to take a break from the stress of the holidays than with a relaxing float down Castaway Creek in a festive tube? Venture down a scenic lazy river on a holiday-themed tube while passing through mysterious caves and illuminated grottos and dipping your toes into Mount Gushmore’s refreshing (and heated) spring water.
