Big at Blizzard Beach

Ahhh...Blizzard Beach - it's one of the outdoor water parks with a tropical theme - but with a Christmas-in-July twist. This one is so unique as it is fashioned as a ski resort (as a result of a mid-90's snowstorm) that was converted into the water park we recognize.

But it does has its flaws, although there are no weight limitations on the slides. You have to consider that to ride the Chair Lifts up Mt. Gushmore, you have to be at most 375 lbs. Taking the stairs is an alternative - at a cost. Chances are that you'll get easily winded.

Also, if you have a family who is on the same boat weightwise, consider splitting up your party to ride Teamboat Springs, the family rafting slide. One family of Eeyore-sized Guests rode it together and the raft bottomed out on the first drop. When the Cast Member pushed them, their raft raced out of control and capsized. They turned out OK.

Also, it has 2 body slides: Slush Gusher and Summit Plummet. Both end in a runoff chute, but they're pretty daunting for the wide-waisted (although they are not that narrow).

Despite the setbacks, Blizzard Beach is a pretty decent water park for the ones at large. Don't be afraid to add it to your itinerary for your magical vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort.
