    Attractions in both water parks say no height restriction, but then in the description it says for big kids, teens and adults. If the kids-4,6, can't do more than the toddler section, I won't bother with the water parks. What are the age/height restriction

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Natalie!

    Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon are both amazing water parks! While there are a few attractions that do have Height Requirements, I think that if your kids like the water, they will find lots to do and have a blast.

    Under the page for Blizzard Beach, you'll find the attractions listed and the Height Requirements will be listed just under the attraction title. Here are the attractions with Height Requirements at Blizzard Beach:

    * Summit Plummet - 48" minimum
    * Slush Gusher - 48" minimum
    * Chairlift - 32" minimum
    * Downhill Double Dipper - 48" minimum
    * Tike's Peak - 48" or under

    That goes for Typhoon Lagoon as well. Here are the attractions with Height Requirements at Typhoon Lagoon:

    * Ketchakiddee Creek - 48" or under
    * Humunga Kowabunga - 48" minimum
    * Bay Slides - 60" or under
    * Crush 'n' Gusher - 48" minimum

    A word of caution, the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool produces 6 foot waves. While they aren't 6 feet tall when they reach the back of the pool, the current is still a little strong so watch your little ones and don't let it mislead you. Go early to get a good spot in the shade before it gets too crowded.

    Please feel free to visit with any other questions.  Its our pleasure to assist you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
