    Which is the better water park for a 6, 7 and 9 year old? My kids are good swimmers and have been to several local waterparks. We are looking for the best "Disney" themed park.

    Hi Mary!

    That's such a touch decision! Both parks have some great perks!

    However, if forced to chose, both of my kids prefer Typhoon Lagoon overall. Crush n' Gusher is such a huge hit with everyone in the family, and the wave pool will keep them entertained for hours! If your kids are willing to try it, snorkeling with the sharks at the Shark Reef is great fun too. If they are more faint of heart, then viewing the sharks and fish from the "sunken" ship works too!

    While the theming at Blizzard Beach is over the top, unfortunately many of the slides there are a bit beyond my kids' current level of bravery (ok, honestly - way beyond mine too!). However, the Ski Patrol Training Camp was a huge hit  and my son happily played there for hours!

    I hope this helps! Enjoy your trip!
