    For the water parks, it says "any height" but then in the description for some rides it says for "big kids, etc." I am trying to find out what rides my two year old who is approximately 36 inches can go on. So if it says "big kid

    Hi Stephanie!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    My boys have always enjoyed both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach.  Both started going when they were 1 or 2 years old.  I honestly only felt comfortable with them playing in the children's area of the parks, riding with me on the lazy river (one at each park), or riding with me and my wife on the family raft ride (one at each park). I would also let them play at the end of the surf pool at Typhoon Lagoon, but that's about it.

    The splash down end of all of the other attractions are pretty deep and might be a problem for guests who cannot swim.

    By the way, I think Typhoon Lagoon is a better choice for families with young children.  That's because there is a lot of shade at Typhoon Lagoon which can be really important on a hot and humid summer day!

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
