    We are going to visit one of the water parks this year at Disney World for the first time. We have a 5 year old and a 2 year old. Which of the two parks would be best for their ages? Thanks!

    Hi Claudia!

    I'd suggest Typhoon Lagoon.  We enjoy the relaxed island vibe, and there aren't quite as many thrillers that are found at Disney's Blizzard Beach.  You'll see that Crush 'n' Gusher and Humunga Kowabunga will have height requirements of 48 inches.  Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference, and we enjoy the tropical surroundings of Typhoon Lagoon to Blizzard Beach's theming.  Both are fantastic places to spend the day relaxing!

    Have a magical vacation!
