    We have 3 kids and one of them is only 45 inches tall. Is it really worth it to go to the water parks or would our hotel pool be better for her?

    Your hotel pool would be a better bargain but the water parks are amazing and water fun is available for your little one.

    Both water parks have special areas for preschoolers under 48 inches tall. Ketchadkiddee Creek in Disney's Typhoon Lagoon has water slides, a beach, a mini ride, fountains and a tugboat to keep your child entertained. Disney's Blizzard Beach features Tike's Peak with water slides, spraying jets, and a wading pool for preschoolers.

    Family rides such lazy rivers, group raft slides, and wave pools are at both parks. If your older kids are deliriously desiring to explore a water park I suggest you check one out. The parks are designed for the whole family so your youngest will also have a blast.

    Enjoy your water fun in the sun!
