    Can you squeeze both water parks in one day? Are they close to each other?

    Hi Heather!

    The Walt Disney World Water Parks are my family's favorite "extras" to do while visiting Walt Disney World! Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach water parks are completely different, so it's a great idea to visit both. 

    It is possible to splash from one park to another in the same day. Purchasing water park admission allows park hopping between the two, so I suggest choosing the park you most want to visit and going there first. If you decide you'd like to leave and check out the other, head on over! Since the water parks do not participate in FastPass+, there is no advanced planning needed, so winging is totally ok.

    The water parks are not near each other and take a little bit of creative transportation to get from one to the other since there isn't a direct bus. The buses to Typhoon Lagoon can be picked up at Disney Springs and the buses to Blizzard Beach can be picked up at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.  There is no direct park to Disney Springs bus until after 4pm, so if you're park hopping prior to 4pm, you'll need to transfer buses 3 times.  (Typhoon Lagoon to Disney Springs to any Disney Resort hotel to Animal Kingdom Theme Park and finally to Blizzard Beach)  This can greatly impact the amount of time you'll have to enjoy the water parks. The fastest and most direct way, although not complimentary, is to use the Lyft app and take a Minnie Van Service which will take you "door to door".  

    Check out the schedule for the parks before you make your plans. During the "winter" months, only one water park is open at a time.

    Have a magical day!
