Potential Closure of Disney World Park in Florida Due to “Revenge”

Later this month, a significant pattern change is expected to occur at Walt Disney World, potentially leading to the closure of a portion of the resort.

Disney World has found itself in the midst of various challenges recently, including a political feud with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. However, the resort has also encountered a winter season like no other, breaking records and significantly impacting its operations.

As the spring season begins and Spring Break crowds flock to the Disney World parks, we can expect more disruptions due to the significant increase in cold fronts, low temperatures, storms, rainfall, and cloud cover compared to previous winter periods.

Disney World’s Blizzard Beach water park will be temporarily closed starting this week, allowing Typhoon Lagoon to reopen at the resort. For years, the two water parks have not operated simultaneously, with one undergoing maintenance while the other remains open to guests. On March 16, Blizzard Beach will close its doors at the end of the day, and on March 17, Typhoon Lagoon will welcome visitors once again, marking its first opening since November 2023.

According to Click Orlando, Disney Park may not remain open for much longer as “winter’s revenge” is on its way. The coldest temperature is expected to occur between March 19 and March 21.

According to the report, a strong area of high pressure will develop in the western region, while a significant dip in the jet stream will form in the eastern part of the United States. As a result, colder air from Canada will flow into the eastern states. The report mentions that temperatures during the third week of March are expected to be 10-20 degrees below the normal range.

Disney and Universal have been closing their water parks if temperatures drop too low in recent months. These closures can happen for a day or even several consecutive days. According to Click Orlando, this weather change will also result in an active storm track through the Gulf of Mexico and the Sunshine State until the end of March.

Winter weather gives way to the arrival of Spring Break crowds at Walt Disney World Resort, where Orlando International Airport (MCO) anticipates an 11% increase in traffic compared to last year. Approximately 7.6 million travelers are expected to pass through MCO during the 44-day Spring Break season.

Walt Disney World Resort is home to four magnificent theme parks: Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios Theme Park. In addition to these thrilling attractions, the resort also offers two incredible water parks, namely Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park. And let’s not forget about the fantastic retail and recreation area known as Disney Springs. It’s important to note that a valid ticket is required for admission to each park.
