Default Disney Water Parks

Which is your favorite? Blizard Beach is quite nice...my first was the one over at Ft Wilderness and I can't recall the name. It was a great first water park to ever visit.

One reason I ask, I am considering half a day at one of the parks on our next trip...and last time I was in a water park there, was around 5 years ago, maybe more, so I am specifically interested in tidbits from fellow water park users about each of the parks. Do they still fill up where you can't get in when you want in the afternoon?

It was River Country.

My favorite is Typoon Lagoon. Blizzard Beach was great but dang the water was cold. Think thawing snow . I asked them if it was for effect.

Getting in depends when you go. We go at Spring Break, always crowded and never took a chance to go later than noon.

I told DW if we wait to mid afternoon we probably will not get in. Looking at peak season in the Summer so I think it will be hit or miss. Probably can call over somehow and find out before we drive over there.

Yes, River Country. I am coming off a sugar high...too many home made Pralines after dinner...I made a batch for a family gathering last night.

Not much of a water park person but I really liked Typhoon Lagoon. Haven't been there in many years though. In fact, I still have 2 water park passes from some where around 1997. lol

Default Water Parks

We've recently returned from Disney a couple of weeks ago and sad to say we didn't visit any waterparks this time around. We did, however, visit Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach years ago and my fav was Typhoon Lagoon.

Disney’s water theme parks are of a whole different variety.Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, one of 2 Water Parks in Walt Disney World Resort, features attractions for the whole family—from fast waterslides to a children's area with pint-sized raft rides.Slalom courses, bobsled and toboggan runs became downhill waterslides. The chair lift carried swimmers instead of skiers. The ski jump became the tallest, fastest water slide in the nation.

I really like Typhoon Lagoon because of the Lazy River and Wave Pool. Ahhhh I could have lived there!

I have never been to any of the waterparks either. I have an upcoming trip in Nov. We are staying offsite at Bonnet Creek and I am so excited about their pools and lazy river that I may decide to skip the waterparks yet again. Are they different then normal waterparks ? Are they "disneyfied" like the other parks are? are we totally missing out by not going (again)
