A hot day at Epcot has been a bit hotter these last few months. Families who used to bring their children to various play areas have had to revise their plans since they’ve been closed due to new health and safety protocols. Thankfully, lots of areas around Walt Disney World are reopening just in time for summer! One Epcot playground recently reopened, but something even better is coming back now: the splash pads!
For those who don’t know, an outdoor splash pad is located in Epcot’s Future World East near Test Track and Mission: Space. It’s a small area, but don’t let it fool you. You’ll get soaked just standing nearby! Try to make sure you have swimsuits for your kids and don’t be afraid to take off your shoes while you wait. Either way, kids love this play area and it’s a great way for them to cool off and get some energy out. Note from a mom: swimsuits aren’t essential, but time out of the stroller sure is!
The splash pads and playgrounds around Walt Disney World remained closed after parks reopened in 2020. In the last few months, the CDC has released several statements that have allowed Disney to review its health and safety standards. Mask policies and social distancing have been revised. Attractions are resembling their former selves again. And those awesome splash pads are coming back!
