    We have planned our vacation!!!! we have the waterpark passess and the park hopper! We have planned to go to Typhoon Lagoon 1/2 the day and Blizzard Beach the other 1/2.... will this work??

    Hi Justin!

    Congrats on your upcoming trip!  Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon feature some amazing, raft rides, slides and lazy rivers and pools, and are a great addition to any Disney itinerary! While it's certainly possible to split one full day between the two waterparks, I'd actually recommend doing the parks on two separate days (in the morning).  The waterparks tend to get crowded (especially when you are visiting in the summer), and people arrive early, in general.  I find that securing a nice, shaded "spot" to park your gear (towels, small cooler, etc.) helps maximize fun at the parks, since you'll have a place to lounge in between attractions.  Prime waterpark "real estate" tends to be scooped up early in the day.  It's not clear when you are visiting from your question, but if it's during the summer, I would definitely consider crowds and arrive early to the waterparks.

    I think a 1/2 day is fine for each park, but I'd recommend hitting Blizzard Beach on one morning, and Typhoon Lagoon on a separate day.  Since you have park hoppers, you can leave the waterpark, stop at your resort to change and head over to one of the four main theme parks for the balance of the day.

    Have a great trip!
