I'm going to try it when we go

I see a lot of messages showing that they close due to capacity during the summer

blech
and then in the fall for a while they close for refurbs

I was looking at the Disney site yesterday to see if anything would be closed during my trip. There was a lot listed for Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach starting the end of October for BB and the beginning of December for TL.

They always keep one open in the "winter" and take turns closing one down and then the other for refurbs.

I'd say fall or early spring. Much past the end of October, and air temps can (although not always) start to make it feel a little chilly. We went a few years back on a warm day in, oh, I think it was Feb or Mar? And had a great time. DD4 - a skinny little thing - was pretty cold though.

But - Floridians tend to get cold when it's below 78. So we might not be the best folks to answer ha!

Being northeast we hit TL last Feb on an 80* day, and it was GREAT, low crowds, could do anything we wanted with minimal wait. We swam Shark Reef 3 times in a row with no wait, we loved it.

In 2012 it will be shut in Feb, but I'd say March has to be great. If you think it's a bit chilly, a zip up Terry cloth Hoodie can do wonders. They absorb the water and give nice warmth. Up north we can't wait till it's 85 beach

Yes! Exactly! I mean, I keep my house thermostat set on 80, so when it dips below 75, I'm pulling on longsleeves! I'm so ridiculous Smile

That's a great tip about the hoodie! We wear long sleeve rash guards, too. They're terrific for a spring or fall day on the beach - really cut down on the wind making you chilly.

Mase and mrhub: Put me down as being in your corner on this one. We keep our thermostat set at 70 degrees year round and do ceiling fans count? we have four of those frequently going as well, (I would have said they were running all the time BUT they don't have any legs laugh ) Sorry I had to say that.

I have a ceiling fan sitting in our living room. Trying to debate whether to put it in the Man Cave or in the bedroom. Jess told me that she doesn't want the bedroom any colder at night... soooooooo... I think it will go downstairs... lol

Heck believe it or not I actually have a ceiling fan and wall to wall carpeting in my garage where I keep "baby" and best of all the garage is heated and air conditioned.

Our electric bill would be $800 a month if we kept our ac on at 68-70! We keep the thermostat on 80 when we're home, bumped up to 85 during the day when we are at work, and our electric bill is still $300. Love the winter with no a/c!

I would say late Spring or early Summer would be the best.
