    Im thinking of buying tickets for the water parks this time around. Is one of the water parks better for younger children then the other one? I have a 6 yo and am just wondering if one park is better suited for younger children or young adults. Thank!

    Hi Christina! 

    We are Walt Disney World water park junkies at my house.  Typhoon Lagoon used to be my absolute favorite water park, but Blizzard Beach has gained my love over the past couple of years.  My kids are 3 and 6 and I feel the toddler area, Tike's Peak, and the smaller kids area, Ski Patrol Training Camp, are perfect for them.  

    Tike's Peak does have a 48 inch maximum height.  My 6 year old is right at that line, so there are a couple of slides he is too tall for.  He spends most of his day at the Ski Patrol Training Camp where he can walk across the "glaciers", zip line at Fahrenheit Drops (his favorite) and sail down a few of the more tame slides. 

    Both water parks have a family raft ride that you can all enjoy together.  

    Typhoon Lagoon is known for the Surf Pool with the gigantic waves that barrel through.  Both of my kids really love this attraction as well as Shark Reef, where you can snorkel with real sharks and other sea life.

    You are guaranteed to have a fantastic water day at either park
    Have a magical day!
