Universal Orlando’s Volcano Bay is closed on Sunday and will remain closed through Tuesday.
Aquatica is closed on Sundays and remains closed again on Mondays. According to the park, it is scheduled to reopen on Tuesday Calendar.
Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon will remain closed Monday and Tuesday due to the low temperatures. The water park reopened earlier this month after being closed to guests in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The highs rebound to lows by the mid 70s on Wednesday and Thursday before another cold snap hits the region over the weekend when the highs will bottom to the mid 60s and lows will be back in the 40s.
