Summer Snow Day

This weekend we’ll be six months away from Christmas, and while I know most people love to do Christmas in July type of celebrations, I’ve always looked to June. It probably has something to do with the fact that I have a birthday in December as well. No matter, when the heat coming into full strength, how about we do something chilly and fun? Today, let’s take the best examples of snow around Walt Disney World and give them some superlatives!

Winter Summerland – Trickiest Snow

Snow castles with slippery drawbridges, zig-zagging slaloms, and squirting snowmen are just a few of the challenges that can keep you from putting a round under par. Of course, if you don’t become a hothead, then you’re sure to get a surprise from Santa Claus at the end of your game!

Blizzard Beach – Most Fun Use of Snow

Slushy slopes that you can take tubes, toboggans, or just yourself down; what’s not to like? The alpine details add to the story, racing elements make many attractions even more exciting, and there’s even a chairlift that plusses the kinetic environment.

it’s a small world – Most Whimsical Snow

Ice dancing penguins decked out with gaucho caps, it doesn’t get much more whimsical than that. Mary Blair’s fingerprints are all over this attraction, but maybe no other scene feels more like Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros than this single vignette.

It’s a Wonderful Shop – Best Shopping Snow (also: Best Snow Photo Op)

It’s movie magic! A snowman and a sleigh stand in front of frosted windows filled with trinkets and ornaments of the holidays. Whether you’re looking for a memento of your trip to hang on your tree this year, or just wanting to snap a photo with that snowman, the holidays are alive and well!

Frozen Ever After – Best Summer Snow Day

Turning summer into something a bit chillier is the task in front of Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and the rest of the Frozen team. No matter if you’re looking for Elsa belting out a song, Marshmallow and his icy breath, or even a couple of puffins, Frozen Ever After will turn any summer day into a winter wonderland.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party – Most Seasonal Use of Snow

Snow on Main Street, U.S.A. Sure, it’s not the real deal, but it still makes for a magical moment.

Be Our Guest – Best Snow-Lit Meal

There is a lot to love about Be Our Guest, no matter what meal of the day you happen into the castle for, but the recreation of the ballroom is definitely high on that list. Top that off with windows overlooking the gorgeous mountain range outside with fresh snow falling, talk about ambiance.

Expedition Everest – Scariest Snow

A pleasant journey through the mountains goes horribly awry in the snow-capped peaks with mangled train tracks and a snow-covered yeti determined to protect his home and get you off of it as quickly as possible. That could be the blurb for any summer blockbuster!
