    I am a FL resident Silver AP. Can I visit the water parks during my blockout period? Also, is there a discounted rate for water park tickets?

    Hey there, Rachel! Thanks for swimming on by to see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Let's help you make a splash at the Walt Disney World Water Parks!

    It's not even May, and summer is almost here in the Sunshine State. Whew! That means it's prime time to hit the Disney Water Parks! Whether you're hurtling down Summit Plummet or floating along on Castaway Creek, there are lots of ways to keep your cool in the Florida sun.

    My family also has Florida Resident Annual Passes that include blockout dates, so I'm happy to help you with your question. While your Silver Annual Pass provides admission to all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks outside of blockout dates, that doesn't include the Disney Water Parks. You'll need to buy a separate ticket if you want to visit the Water Parks, and there are a couple of options for that:

    - Buy a 1-Day Water Park Ticket (there are versions with and without blockout dates, so be sure you check when ordering), if you plan to visit only once.

    - Purchase a Water Parks Annual Pass in addition to your Silver Annual Pass for year-round water fun.

    - Upgrade your Silver Annual Pass to Platinum Plus, which includes Water Parks, certain golf courses and no blockout dates on Theme Park visits, among other benefits.

    Also, there aren't any discounts on Water Parks Tickets or Passes.

    If you don't need all the benefits of a Platinum Annual Pass, the Water Parks Annual Pass may be your best bet. You can compare different Disney Annual Pass options to see what works for your family.

    Rachel, I hope this helps you weather our summer heat at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Parks. Be sure to float on over again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
