Blizzard Beach to get Unspecified "Enhancements" During Extended Refurbishment

Is a short refurbishment enough time for a new attraction?

Though a few months' closure may not seem like enough time for a new ride to be constructed at a Disney park, there is some precedent for a quick turnaround at Disney's water parks. Prior to the 2017 opening of Miss Adventure Falls, the most recent attraction built at a Disney water park, Crush 'n' Gusher, only took a few months itself to construct, with work beginning on this massive slide complex in October 2004 and the attraction welcoming its first guests in March 2005, over a decade ago.

So even though the refurbishment is currently only going to be around 6 months or so, If a new attraction's construction is indeed in the cards and follows a similar pattern, we may be looking at an official announcement for this project sometime this summer (perhaps at the upcoming D23 Expo next month)  and then a potential opening in either spring or summer of 2020.

Though this is all speculation at the moment, it would make sense for Disney to finally start paying attention to Blizzard Beach, and hopefully these "enhancements" mean a new attraction is finally on the way for this park after over two decades of the exact same attraction lineup since 1995.
