    Hi Moms. Is it possible to book Getaway Glen Umbrella for a half day? Many Thanks

    Hi Margaret!

    My family can't decide which of the two Walt Disney World Water Parks is our favorite.  Every visit we change our mind, but it's currently Disney's Typhoon Lagoon.  We can't get enough of Miss Adventure Falls, the newest attraction which is a family raft ride.  We are all for attractions where we can all ride together.

    Renting a Getaway Glen Umbrella for the day is a great idea.  It not only secures a spot, but also a spot in the shade and there's no stress about finding chairs on your own.  The Getaway Glen Umbrellas include 2 reserved lounger chairs, 2 reserved chairs, a small table and 4 towels.  This area is located in a sandy spot right next to the main Quick-Service restaurant, Leaning Palms and an entrance to Castaway Creek, the lazy river.  Getaway Glen Umbrellas are only available as full day rentals, so they are all yours no matter how long you spend splashing around the park.

    If you plan on spending a good amount of time at Typhoon Lagoon, I highly recommend purchasing refillable drink mugs.  These are separate from the Disney Resort hotel refillable mugs, but work the same way and can only be refilled at either of the water parks for that day only.  They can be reactivated at a discount if you visit a water park on another day.  

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions or if you'd like help planning your Disney Water park day.

    Have a magical day!
