Disney is offering guests the chance to rent a "premium space" for the day at its Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon water parks.
From June 1, guests will be able to rent a space for up to 6 people at a cost of $250 plus tax. The space includes private lockers, all-day drink mugs, a cooler containing bottled water, lounge furniture, tables and rental towels. Also included are the services of an attendant, who can offer hints and tips and assist with food and drink orders (though food and drink are an additional cost).
The spaces are hired for a full day on a first-come, first-served basis. Currently the only way to get hold of one is on the day at the park itself - look for "Polar Patios" at Blizzard Beach, and "Beachcomber Shacks" at Typhoon Lagoon. Disney is expected to offer advanced reservations by late summer.
Importantly, the premium spaces offer no queue-jumping benefits to guests, leaving them facing the same wait times as other guests.
