Disney’s Blizzard Beach is themed after a one time ski resort that has all but melted away making it an awesome water park! Slides, water pools, rapids, and a chairlift are all found within. A perfect one or two day excursion from vacationing on Anna Maria Island. A must visit for a hot Summer day.
If you’re daring enough you can take a 120 foot drop on Summit Plummet and find out how fast you were traveling when you reach the bottom. The near vertical drop is enough to get your adrenaline pumping for another climb to the top of Mount Gushmore to ride again!
There are 12 attractions total, and 7 dining options within Blizzard Beach. You can ride with a friend on a double tube down the Runoff Rapids or race against them to be the first one down the Downhill Double Dipper. If that doesn’t suit your style, you can always relax in the one acre wave pool.
Visiting Disney World from Anna Maria Island is a perfect one or two day trip that is sure to provide another level of entertainment. Bring the Hollywood magic to life at Disney’s Hollywood Studios park. If there is one thing Walt Disney World does amazingly well, it is bringing the movie experience to life within Hollywood Studios. As you walk around the park you will feel as if you’re the main character on set of the next big movie release. The iconic Hollywood Tower Hotel as well as Mickey’s magical hat from Fantasia can be found within!
If that doesn’t satisfy you join Phineas and Ferb as they make the movie of all movies detailing their summer vacation! There’s no better way to celebrate the summer season than with the ultimate summer break stars.
If you’re seeking a thrill you can ride the Rock’n Roller Coaster which will have you grooving to Aerosmith tracks or catch the Lights, Motors, Action! extreme stunt show.
There is plenty to see at Disney’s Hollywood Studios park so be sure to bring along a comfortable pair of walking shoes. You’ll be doing a lot!
Park hours for summer 2013 are 9:00AM to 10:00PM with differing hours on holidays.
