    We are staying at the Port New Orleans Riverside and want to take a day trips to both water parks. Does Disney offer bus transportation? Should we bring our own towels? Is renting the Getaway & Lodge Umbrella's worth the price?

    Hi Tamara!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    There is something very enjoyable about spending a day at one of the Walt Disney World water parks - Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach - and I always schedule a day at both of these parks as a relaxing break from the theme parks. At Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, Getaway Glen Umbrellas provide a reserved area with seating for up to four Guests (two loungers and two beach chairs), a small table, towels and a beach umbrella. You can call at Singapore Sals, when you arrive at the park, to ask about availability for that day.  Lodge Umbrellas can be found at Disney's Blizzard Beach and offer you the same amenities as the Getaway Glen Umbrellas. You may also visit Beach Haus to ask about same day availability.  The same phone number serves both water parks, for all enquiries, pricing details and reservations: (407) 939 7529. Current pricing is around $40-$50 per day, but please note that prices are subject to change. If you are spending a whole day at the water park, I definitely think these are worth renting - especially for that much-needed shade.  I would recommend arriving early if you want to rent these, as they are popular and are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you need more towels, these can be rented at the water parks.  

    Disney buses offer a return service from all Disney Resort hotels to the water parks, and run approximately every 30 minutes, beginning around 45 minutes before park opening.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
