    Should I buy tickets ahead of time for the water park for Saturday March 31st since this a busy time of the year? or can we decide to go to the water park on that day and buy tickets there.

    Surf's up, Patty! Thanks for jumping right in with a great question for us! I can certainly understand your worry as spring can be a busy season at times.  After a long, cold winter like much of the country has experienced this year, heading to the lovely warmth of Florida sounds like a practically perfect thing to do! While you are there, be sure to visit the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. It's a great way to celebrate the arrival of spring and say goodbye to those cold, snowy days.

    Patty, you are welcome to purchase tickets to the Walt Disney World Resort Disney Water Parks online now or in person the day you plan to visit. The cost will be the same and I don't think you will have to worry about not being able to get into the parks because of crowds. Have you thought about which one you want to visit, or are you planning to visit both? I personally LOVE Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park for its theming and the splashtastic Miss Adventure Falls. If you are thinking of visiting both water parks, look into upgrading your tickets to the Park Hopper Plus option, which will give you as many days at the water parks as you have days to the theme parks. It's like doubling up your fun!

    Thanks again for stopping by with your question and please let us know if you need any other help as you continue to plan your trip.
