    Planning a day at HS with mid-day break at water park. Originally planned on TL, however BB looks closer. How fast/easy is it to get from HS to either water park? Going to spend full day at other water park. Which water park is better for full- vs half day

    Hi Michelle!

    The are buses that run from Disney's Hollywood Studios to both Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. They both are about equal distance, so don't worry about that. Typhoon Lagoon is on one side of Disneys Hollywood Studios and Blizzard Beach is on the other, both about 15 minutes on the bus. 

    Blizzard Beach has great slides and is often loved by teens and thrill seekers. This water park is also the most crowded 

    Typhoon Lagoon has awesome theming and a great wave pool. Depending on which you prefer should dictate which one you visit because they both can be enjoyed in a half day. Blizzard Beach has also been known to close due to reaching capacity during busy times of the year, so if you don't plan to arrive until 2:00 or so, I suggest visiting Typhoon Lagoon to be safe.
