Mention the words, “Walt Disney World Florida” and most kids from the ages of nine to 99 will know about the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. But did you know there are four other amazing Disney attractions in Florida? These are Blizzard Beach, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Typhoon Lagoon. FloridaTix offers great deals on some of Florida’s best attractions that give you unlimited admissions to all six Disney attractions along with access to other great parks for seven, 14 or 21 days.
Legend, or rather a tall tale, has it that this theme park was originally a ski resort, built in response to a freak snowstorm that beset the entire east coast of America from Maine to Miami. Florida being where it is, the snow was short-lived, and all the snow melted, leaving a very sad ski resort. Shortly before the ill-fated park closed forever, a feisty alligator slid down a flume and into a pool of water. A new water park was born and named Blizzard Beach! The truth is, while there actually was a blizzard along the eastern seaboard that did encompass Florida, it occurred in the year 1899, two years before Walt Disney was even born.
Today, this quirky park, built to look like a frosty ski resort, features rides that both chill and thrill, family-friendly raft rides, scaled-down versions of some of the more robust attractions to make them suitable for little kiddies and plenty of cool lounge areas where the grownups can stop and catch their breath. While you’re here, hunt down Summit Plummet, one of the country’s fastest and tallest water slides. Make sure not to miss this great park if you have tickets to Disney World!
