    I have a 5 & an 8 year old (both girls). We would like to plan 1 day at a water park. Which one would be best given their ages Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach?


    Although both parks have beaches, a lazy river, and appeal to all ages, Blizzard Beach is my children's favorite because of its sheer number of slides and the pre-teen Ski Patrol Training Camp which sports smaller slides (perfect for your 5-year-old) and a fun iceberg walk and T-Drop. 

    I like the park's family raft ride (which is longer than Typhoon Lagoon) and the views from the ski lift! 

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
