    My husband and I are going to Disney late July/early August. We will probably dedicate one day to the Waterparks and are wondering whether we should go to Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon? Would you recommend an AM at one and PM at another?

    Hi Tabitha! Thes best thing about going to Disney World in the summer to me is the water parks! Be sure to bring sunscreen and wear water shoes - the ground gets very hot! If I had to pick one park, my vote would be with Blizzard Beach. The ski hill setting is so fun, and there are so many must dos I can't list them all. I recommend getting there early and heading straight to Downhill Double Dipper - get there early and go there first. It's the most fun you'll have on an eight-second slide. The line ups get busy quickly, so go there first thing! Be sure not to miss Slush Gusher and Summit Plummet if you enjoy daring rides and take some time to float along Cross Country Creek.

    If you do want to experience both parks, I suggest getting to Blizzard Beach right at opening, and then head to the Typhoon Lagoon for the last few hours, as the parks tend to thin out then. Personally, I'm always so tired after a day in one park, I would just stick  to one, but if you have the energy, you would have a great time doing both!
