10 Fun Facts About Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park

Today in Disney history is a milestone for Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, which opened its doors on April 1, 1995.

In honor of the anniversary, here are 10 fun facts about this place.

Today in Disney history is a milestone for Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, which opened its doors on April 1, 1995. In honor of the anniversary, here are 10 fun facts about this place.  Summit Plummet, the park’s signature attraction, measures 120 feet tall. The park’s storyline described the park as being Florida’s first ski resort – which quickly melted into a fun water park due to the temperature. One of the “ski resort” elements that still remains is a chair lift, which takes guests from the beach to the top of Mt. Gushmore.  The park debuted an original character, Ice Gator, as part of it’s storyline. When it comes to speed, guests can slide up to 55 mph on Summit Plummet and 25 mph on the Downhill Double Dipper. Teamboat Springs is the world’s longest family raft ride. Up to six can ride per raft.  Tike’s Peak, an area for young children, features a scaled-down version of Mt. Gushmore. Teamboat Springs features a 1,200-foot series of rushing waterfalls.  One of the park’s more unusual snacks are mini donuts, which are prepared fresh and offered up with chocolate, white chocolate or raspberry dipping sauce. In 2012, the park joined 500 host locations to help set the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson.

Oooey-Gooey Ghoulish Delights from the Disneyland Resort Candy Kitchens

There’s no doubt about it – fall is in the air, Halloween is just around the corner, pumpkin carving is nearly underway, and the Disneyland candy makers have a few tricks up their sleeves to get everyone in the spirit of the season. Or in this case, “treats.”
David Ramirez is the Candy Production Manager, who works closely with the Disney Theme Park Merchandise product development team and candy makers to create ‘ghoulish delights’ for Disney fans to enjoy. Here are a few things he says that you should keep an eye out for, if you’re in the neighborhood.

Oooey-Gooey Ghoulish Delights from the Disneyland Resort Candy Kitchens Featuring Skull Apples

Skull Apple – Heads will roll for this particular gooey caramel and white chocolate dipped apple, which was themed after the apple featured in the animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Tip: Only available at the Disneyland Resort.

Oooey-Gooey Ghoulish Delights from the Disneyland Resort Candy Kitchens Featuring Dirt and Worms Apple

Dirt and Worms – You will “dig” this particular apple, which is covered in cookie crumble and drizzled with white chocolate.
What other Halloween-inspired creations can you treat yourself to? How about our Pumpkin Mickey Mouse Apples or Minnie Mouse Witch Hat Apples?

For the more “spirited” bunch, there are Ghost Pretzels and Ghost Marshmallows, which I would say are to die for … but that’s just me. Take a look:

A few other things I’m choosing to throw in to the Halloween bucket this year are the goth goodies, which include bag of bones candies and candy corn, among others, as well as a special popcorn tin and pumpkin seed brittle. To keep you coming back for more, look for the pumpkin fudge in the coming weeks.

Curious about whether they have anything sugar free? They certainly do. Selections vary, but can be found at many of the Disneyland candy locations throughout the park.

Here are a few locations where you can find some of the boo-tiful goodies featured here: Trolley Treats (Disney California Adventure park); Candy Palace (Disneyland park) and Marceline’s Confectionery (Downtown Disney District).
