    Would you recommend taking a 2 1/2 year old and 4 1/2 year old to the water parks? If so - which has the most to offer that age group? Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon? Would it be enough for a full day?

    Hi, Kerry! Typhoon Lagoon is the most popular water park in the world for good reason! My kids love this park, and I think your children will love it, too!  The Ketchakiddee Creek area is great! This play area for kids can keep them entertained for hours with slides, fountains, and water cannons, It is also a good place for building sandcastles.  Blizzard Beach has Tikes Peak play area, but I find this one less inspired and harder for adults and kids to interact in.  The surf pool at Typhoon Lagoon is the largest one in the world, and you can be as daring or as hesitant as you want because there is a long, gentle slope into the pool for the smaller kids to still be able to get in on the action.  Cross Country Creek lazy river circles the park. Depending on how adventurous your young ones are there are MANY other attractions. There is easily enough to fill up an entire water park day.  Typhoon Lagoon gets my vote!  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
