Summer is just around the corner!

Blizzard Beach

That means we’ll get to bask in the Florida sun. It’s the perfect time of year for swimming and sunbathing. Luckily, Disney World has two water parks to get your swim in, however, one is still closed, and we don’t know when it will reopen. We’re taking a look at what will remain closed this week (including a water park), so let’s go!
