    Going to WDW in June- This is our first time going to one of the water parks during our trip and I need a recommendation. I have an 8 Y/O daughter and 1 Y/O son, which water park would be best?

    Hi, Jill!

    Both Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon are great for guests of all ages from the kiddie splash areas for the little Mouseketeers to areas to super fast and terrifying water slides for the big kids.  

    I personally prefer Blizzard Beach with its fun winter theme.  There is even a chair lift to take you to some of the higher slides, something your 8 year old will love!  I also think the wave pool is a bit calmer at Blizzard Beach over Typhoon Lagoon, so your little one can splash around in the shallow areas. 

    There are life jackets available, so make sure to get your kids suited up for safety when you arrive.  Bring along plenty of sunscreen, swim shoes or flip flops, and hats. 

    Whichever water park you decide on, I hope you have a great June vacation in Walt Disney World!
