    We have booked our trip for end of May - only have time to go to one water park - which water park do you recommend - my kids are 4 and 10.


    If you only have time for one water park at Disney, I recommend Blizzard Beach! It's not that Typhoon Lagoon isn't a great park, I just feel for the ages of your children that they'd get the most out of BB. Here's why:
    • Both parks sport slides, but Blizzard Beach has more--and more that would be appropriate for your kids. Not only will you find several good pre-school slides, there's Ski Patrol Camp just for tweens nearby for your 10-year-old. In fact, we typically let our younger one go down the smaller slides and build up the nerve for the larger slides.
    • Both have lazy rivers and both parks have a family raft ride. I prefer the raft ride at BB not only because it's longer but if my kids want to ride it multiple times, we have the option to grab the ski lift for the trek, rather than hiking the stairs!
    • In my opinion, the lure of Typhoon Lagoon is its wave pool. But water can rise quickly. It's more for teens. The last time I was there with my 4- and 9-year-old, I was a nervous wreck trying to watch for them in the sea of people as the water knocked me over. Opt for an inner tube in Blizzard Beach's waves.
    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
