As they prepare to begin selling travel packages for 2025, Walt Disney World has revealed that guests will receive access to either Disney's Blizzard Beach or Disney's Typhoon Lagoon waterpark on the first day of their hotel reservation. Via a post to (formerly Twitter), Disney travel follower Brook Geiger McDonald claims that Disney Vacation Club stays are included in this perk. 

Disney Vacation Club later confirmed the perk, providing a brief list of terms and conditions with additional details promised at a later date:

  • This benefit is exclusive to registered Members and Guests staying at a Disney Vacation Club Resort or Disney Resort hotel with a check-in date from January 1, 2025 through December 31, 2025. All Members and Guests must be on the room reservation. 
  • This benefit is only on the day of check-in, and is valid for admission to either Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park or Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park. Check the park calendar and operating hours closer to your 2025 arrival to plan your check-in day.
  • Usage of this benefit is subject to availability.
  • At this time, a park reservation is not required to visit a water park; however, reservation requirements are subject to change.
  • Water parks are subject to extended rehabilitation, seasonal, capacity and weather closures, or may close for other reasons.
  • Each of our water parks is refurbished annually. These routine maintenance periods are staggered, so our Guests should be able to enjoy at least one water park experience year-round.
  • Water park admission is nontransferable, nonrefundable and has no cash value, and excludes activities/events separately priced or not open to the general public.
  • Parks, attractions and other offerings subject to availability, closures and change or cancellation without notice or liability. No refund or credit given for any such changes or cancellation. Park admission and offerings are not guaranteed.

It is not immediately clear how if DVC split stays would be treated any differently. In the past, split stays--with a guest changing hotels or rooms midway through a visit--were treated as entirely separate visits. In theory, this could grant the complimentary water park access multiple times during a single trip.
