Trying to decide on which of the three water parks to visit? Blizzard Beach
and Typhoon Lagoon are the most exciting and River Country is more relaxed.
Blizzard Beach will be the most crowded- attracting teenagers and locals
alike to amazing slides such as Summit Plummet - a 160-foot fall angled 60
degrees creating 50-mph speeds. Typhoon Lagoon is a good choice for families
with kids of various ages as it has rides to attract them all. Both Typhoon
Lagoon and Blizzard Beach take a full day to enjoy.
River Country is a tamer park, good for some time to relax and unwind. Preschoolers will love the Ol' Wading pool specifically designed for them with 4 small slides, and a mere 18 inches of water, so parents can relax a bit. Note: River Country water is a lake and not heated in cold weather. This park can be enjoyed in less than one day easily.
Disney World Water Parks TIP: Drop by any local store that sells camping gear and look for a polypro camp towel for use at the Disney water parks. Their weight is less than cotton and they will dry much faster. In spite of the small size which makes them easy to stash and carry, camp towels absorb vast amounts of water so you can dry more with less.
