You may not
associate bathing suits with ski slopes, but that's the
perfect attire when heading to Disney's Blizzard Beach
You see, once upon a time, there was a freak snow storm
in Disney World. Wanting to take advantage of the white
stuff, they built a ski resort. Sadly, the temperatures
rose and it looked as if their new venture was melting
Alligators aren't known for winter sports, but an
adventurous one decided to slide down the slippery slope
into the pool that formed below. Realizing that the ski
runs could be put to use, Blizzard Beach was born, or so
the story goes. This amazing water park is ranked no. 2
in the U.S.
Blizzard Beach is home to numerous attractions that will
fill your heart with excitement. Try racing down the
Downhill Double Dipper with a friend or unwind on an
inner tube in the Cross Country Creek. Kids even have
their own section called Tike's Peak that features
small-scale slides, pop jets and a fountain play area.
The frosty theme is found throughout the park, with
former ski slalom courses and bobsled and sledding runs
used as downhill water slides. Chair lifts carry
swimmers to the top of the courses, or you can opt to
use the stairways and do some "mountain climbing."
Melting snow reveals sandy beaches, a pre-teen section,
a scaled down kiddie area, and a host of other
activities. While you're surrounded by "ice and snow",
the water stays a toasty and comfortable 80-82 degrees
all year round.
