    We have a 6 year old that is a thrill seeker. We want to go to one of the water parks but don't know which will give her the most thrills since she is only 46 inches in height. I know many of the slides are 48 inches or above. Which park do I chose?

    Hi there Kenzie!

    One of the first water parks I ever visited was Typhoon Lagoon when it first opened! I do love a great water slide and both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach have amazing theming and slides! I have both a Ten and Six year old but they have both been to each water park and each loves a little bit of both. My ten year old daughter is a Coaster and Waterslide nut! She's been riding thrill rides since she was three. Whatever she could do height wise she would ride! My son on the other hand doesn't like the thrill rides. 

    I checked the Disney height requirements chart and it looks like both parks will allow your daughter to go on most of the slides. As you can see from the chart below, Blizzard Beach has three Slides which she will not be able to go on and Typhoon Lagoon has two that she won't be able to go on. There are plenty of slides at both parks so it's really up to you.

    At Blizzard Beach there are two separate areas where the kids can play. Ski Patrol Training Camp and Tike's Peak. My son had a great time at the Tike's Peak area but graduated to the Ski Patrol Training Camp area after an hour or so of doing the little slides. So for a six year old I think she would really enjoy some fun in the Ski Patrol Training Camp! I hope you have a Magical Time at the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have more questions, we are always here to help! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
