Guests at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach always have had a way to beat the heat: by taking the plunge into cooling waters. Now they also have a means to get out of the sun and just “chill” during a day at the two popular Walt Disney World water parks: Beachcomber Shacks and Polar Patios.
Available for a day-long rental, Shacks and Patios are premium spaces that put a roof or a large umbrella over guests’ heads, provide upscale Adirondack seating for relaxation, put beverages to quench a whole days’ thirsts at guests’ fingertips, and give them a service attendant who does the leg work if they want to purchase food from the a la carte menu.
The spaces – six at Blizzard Beach and seven at Typhoon Lagoon – accommodate six guests each and cost $250 ($150 for non-peak season) plus tax for the day rental, which includes towels, a locker, all-day drink mugs and an ice chest stocked with bottled water. Four additional guests can be added to the standard six at a charge of $25 per guest. Water park admission is not included. The spaces have been extremely popular and usually sell out within one hour of park opening. They can be reserved by calling 407/WDW-PLAY.
