Summer is upon us – it officially starts TOMORROW! And for those of you not familiar with Disney Weather, that means heat and humidity, and lots of it. There are plenty of ways to stay cool at Walt Disney World, and one of the best is to head to one of their two waterparks for some fun in the sun!
Blizzard Beach used to be a ski resort, but has since melted away into a “watery wonderland!” Fly down Mount Gushmore – one of the world’s tallest and fastest waterslides! Or you can float down the tranquil lazy river in an inner tube, or enjoy some sunbathing on the white sand beach
Typhoon Lagoon offers snorkeling on their coral reef, surf lessons from pros, a giant wave pool, and much more! The story is that an epic typhoon caused “Mount Mayday” to become an oasis of water-filled adventure, and the theming is carried on throughout the park
Oh, and should you get hungry after all that splashing, you can take advantage of the snack carts and quick service dining locations available at each water park. Children’s play areas are also available at each park, so young ones can enjoy the water park fun too!
Personally, I am not a huge waterpark fan, and having been to both already, I don’t usually plan to spend any time there while at WDW, but they definitely can be fun, and are a perfect way to chill out on a hot Orlando day!
My advice? Get there early. Seriously – like before it opens, and plan to spend the morning and early afternoon there enjoying the rides and cooling off in the water. Then, by mid afternoon, when the sun is at its hottest, you are all refreshed and ready to head back to your Resort for a nap!
