Water Parks: A spectacular "ski resort" in sunny Orlando, Disney's Blizzard Beach offers an astounding array of alpine-themed rides, creating a winter wonderland of chilling thrills in the midst of a tropical lagoon. Water-filled slalom courses and toboggan runs delight all ages, while plucky patrons have a blast braving the 120-foot Summit Plummet, one of the world's tallest and fastest water slides, that zips riders down a mountain at 55 miles per hour. Test out your balance on the floating iceberg walk across at the Ski Patrol Training Camp or take a relaxing dip in the Melt-Away Bay.

Water Parks: "Blizzard Beach is "snowed-in" for maintenance for two months usually between November and February. Check the park hours and operational dates at www.disneyworld.disney.go.com/parks/blizzard-beach/calendar/"
