One of Walt Disney World's Water Parks to Reopen to Guests on March 7, 2021

With a phased approach to reopening, the Walt Disney World Resort has continued to welcome Guests to the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, and the Disney Springs area. While Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park remain closed at this time, the company is currently planning to reopen one of the two Disney water parks on March 7, 2021.


Like the other areas of Walt Disney World Resort, Disney will welcome back Guests to its water parks in a responsible way, with a plan focused on health and well-being. Additional details regarding the phased reopening plan will be shared at a later time.

Of course, some Guests with existing tickets and some Annual Passholders are impacted by this update; as a result, Disney is offering options to Guests with an existing Premier Passport, Platinum Plus Pass, Water Parks Annual Pass, Water Parks After 2 Annual Pass, or tickets that include the Park Hopper Plus Option or Water Park and Sports Option:
  • Platinum Plus Passholders: If you are a Platinum Plus Passholder, you will receive a partial refund based on the price difference between the price you paid for your Platinum Plus Pass and the price of a Platinum Annual Pass prorated by the number of days left on your pass prior to water park reopening.
  • Premier Passholders: If you are a Premier Passholder, you will receive a pro-rated refund based on the difference between a Walt Disney World Platinum Plus pass compared to the price of a Platinum pass prorated by the number of days left on your pass prior to Water Park reopening (excluding any additional extensions you may be eligible for due to the continued closure of Disneyland Resort).
  • Passholders on the Monthly Payment Program: For those on the Annual Pass monthly payment program, please note you will receive a lump sum refund as noted above; however, your ongoing monthly payment will not change.

Refunds will be automatically processed. Passholders do not need to take any additional action. Refunds to the original form of payment can be expected by late October through early November 2020. If the original form of payment is not available, you should expect a check by late November.

At this time, Guests can purchase new tickets that include the Park Hopper Plus Option or Water Park and Sports Option for admission March 7 and later. Disney will resume sales of Water Park annual passes and 1-Day Water Park Tickets at a later date.
