Blizzard Beach

If you get to the top of the slides at Blizzard Beach, you get a view of the Walt Disney World property. The only thing that can be seen is any building taller than the trees. This view is toward Hollywood Studios: the Tower of Terror is in the middle of the horizon. It is very difficult to imagine you are in the middle of the “vacation capital of the world” since all you see are the tree tops!!!
