Orlando Blizzard Beach
If the legend is to be believed, Blizzard Beach resulted from an old ski resort that was prematurely erected following a rare snow blizzard in the area. The story goes that the entrepreneurial owners were wondering how to increase custom when an alligator they saw sliding down a mountain suddenly inspired them. Ski resort soon made way for waterpark and now plays host to world-famous rides like Summit Plummit.
Resorts in the Blizzard Beach area are typically excellent and provide the ideal base in which to wind down and wake up before a thrill-seeking day of rides and amusements. Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort on the picturesque Lake Lago Dorado combines easy access to the theme parks with its own attractions like heated swimming pools and landscaped gardens. Latin-American fusion cuisine is also available on site at the tasty Maya Grill.
