    We plan on visiting the water parks at opening for smaller lines hopefully. I want to book fast passes for the park we are returning to after we leave the water park. I'm curious about how long we should allocate to the water park?

    Hi Kim! Thanks so much for sharing all of your questions with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love how thorough you are being with your planning!

    We love visiting Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park! Both water parks are so much fun and are a great way to start the day! We typically do just as you are planning. We arrive at park opening, enjoy several attractions and then, after getting cleaned up at our Disney Resort hotel, we make our way to a theme park where we enjoy the FastPass+ selections we secured.

    I know there are several Guests that lap up some sunbathing time. I'm so glad they take a few moments to enjoy some relaxed time soaking up some rays. We are not those Guests. We go full force from attraction to attraction. We can typically make it to everything we want to do (and sometimes double up on a few things) by 1:00 PM (or 2:00 PM if we stop for lunch).

    On our water park days, we typically make our 1st FastPass+ selection for 3:00 or 4:00 PM. That gives us time to quickly freshen up. We use Disney Transportation from the water park to our Disney Resort hotel and then to the theme park.

    Our water park days are always so fun! I know you will enjoy every wonderful water filled moment! Kowabunga dude!
