Finally, it’s the first day of spring! While everyone up North begins to officially thaw out (hopefully), it’s the perfect time to celebrate the place at Walt Disney World Resort that was created by thawing out – Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park.


Covering over 60 acres, this one-of-a-kind themed water recreation area is home to the thrill slide Summit Plummet, as seen above, still under construction back in December 1994.


It’s the perfect place to chill out on a warm Florida day, and all you need is a bathing suit. No gloves, boots or heavy coats required!
