Winter Summerland Mini Golf, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park
Late one Christmas Eve, as Santa was flying back to the North Pole, he discovered snow in Florida. After surveying the strange sight, he decided to build a vacation destination for his off-duty elves, a Winter Summerland.
The only thing Winter Summerland lacked was a golf course, so Santa’s elves divided into two camps, one that enjoyed the warm Florida sun and another that preferred the cold of the North Pole. The elves then built two different 18-hole golf experiences: a sand course named “Summer” and a snow course named “Winter.”
Open daily from 10am to 10pm (Sun-Thurs) and 10am to 11pm (Fri-Sat). Priced from $14 for over 10s and from $12 for children under 9*

Based on vintage horror flicks and retro sci-fi movies, guests putt through elaborate movie-style scenes, passing through a cemetery, under a giant spider, around an enormous alien robot, through the open mouth of a giant space worm, and into the basement lab of a towering haunted house. Interactive elements and special effects add to the fun, and LED neon edge-lighting means you can play from morning til late.
