    Hi we bought annual passes that include the waterparks and are looking forward to spending sometime at the waterparks this summer but I was wondering what my 4yr old son would be able to do he cannot swim yet but thinks he is a big kid with no fear

    Hi Meghan!

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney parks Moms Panel.  You ask a great question!  Both Disney water parks have offerings for the younger set.  Blizzard Beach is my favorite for children who are around the age of your son.  There is a great dedicated area for the little ones called Tike's Peak.  There's enough there to keep him occupied for hours.  As a matter of fact, children must be under 4 feet tall to play.  Take a look at all that Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park has to offer!  Disney's Typhoon Lagoon also offers a play area where children under 5 feet tall can enjoy pint sized water slides.  Keep in mind that both parks also offer slides that the entire family can enjoy.   You'll see that there is no shortage of things to do for the younger set.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation, Meghan!
