    "Just water parks" trip this summer with DH, DS 5 and DD 17 months (never been to them but to the other parks LOTS). O.K. to bring a lifevest for my daughter into the water parks? Any tips for those ages (son is 45" tall)? Crowds horrible

    I recently went to the Walt Disney World water parks for the first time and I had so much fun and I am positive your family will also. These parks have great family water adventures for kids of all ages. For the little ones there are some great play areas. At Disney's Blizzard Beach the kids under 48 inches can play all day at Tike's Peak which has mountains of fun at this water wonderland made just for the smaller guests. This preschooler play area offers scaled-down, kid-sized slides that resemble the bigger waterslides of Mount Gushmore. The wading pool at Tike's Peak is very shallow and kids just love it. For the older kids there is the great Cross Country Creek, a themed lazy river that was just the best way to spend time with the family. As for life vests, they are provided free of charge, but you must leave a driver's license or credit card as deposit. Life vests and water wallets are available a Snowless Joe's, turn right after entering the Park. I would recommend that you get to the parks early because over the summer they can get crowded. These water parks are great ways for the whole family to be together and create some lasting memories to make this the summer to remember. I will see you at the parks.
