    Hi Jodie - you just recommended BB to a couple of water thrill seekers. We are a less adventurous family - boys 10 and 13 -- not expert swimmers just yet. Would we still love BB, or should we do TL? BB seemed to really have fun theming. Thanks!

    Thanks for directing your question to me, Christine! I honestly believe Disney's Blizzard Beach is a great place to visit whether you are a thrill seeker or a less adventurous family looking for a fun day at the water parks! We started taking our youngest children to Blizzard Beach at two-years-old and have visited every summer since! My family's favorite attraction at DIsney's Typhoon Lagoon is the exciting Surf Pool which features six-foot swells that guests love to "body surf." I would be very hesitant to let my children go into the deep water in the Surf Pool if they were not strong swimmers. Inner-tubes are not allowed in the Surf Pool; whereas, they are allowed in Melt-Away Bay at Disney's Blizzard Beach, which is a much tamer wave pool in my personal opinion. What truly sets Blizzard Beach apart for my family is the Ski Patrol Training Camp, an area designed for school age and tweens!  My four children which range in age between seven and fourteen could spend hours on the zip line and floating iceberg course in this fun area!  I also prefer the family raft ride, Teamboat Springs at Disney's Blizzard Beach. Although there are definitely thrilling water slides at Blizzard Beach, there are also fun water attractions that do not have a minimum height requirement, which your boys would most likely love! My family also loves floating on an inner-tube down Cross Country Creek. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with either of Disney's Water Parks!  With that being said, I personally think if you are interested in the unique theming at DIsney's Blizzard Beach, then I would recommend it for your trip! I hope this information helps in making your decision!  Please don't hesitate to write me back if you have any additional questions that I can assist you with. Best wishes for a splish splashing good time, Christine!
    Happy Planning,
