Important Information From Disney About This Benefit:

  • This benefit is exclusive to registered Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel with a check-in date from January 1, 2025 through December 31, 2025. All Guests must be on the room reservation.
  • This benefit is only on the day of check-in, and is valid for admission to either Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park or Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park.
  • Usage of this benefit is subject to availability.
  • At this time, a park reservation is not required to visit a water park; however, reservation requirements are subject to change.
  • Water parks are subject to extended rehabilitation, seasonal, capacity and weather closures, or may close for other reasons.
  • Each of our water parks is refurbished annually. These routine maintenance periods are staggered, so our Guests should be able to enjoy at least one water park experience year-round.
  • Water park admission is nontransferable, nonrefundable and has no cash value, and excludes activities/events separately priced or not open to the general public.
  • Parks, attractions and other offerings subject to availability, closures and change or cancellation without notice or liability. No refund or credit given for any such changes or cancellation. Park admission and offerings are not guaranteed.
