Water Parks

Florida Guide > Disney General

General

  • Don't forget your sunscreen!
  • Measure your child's height before you arrive at the Park so you know which attractions they will be able to ride.
  • Many Disney Cast Members can speak more than one language. The flags on their name badges show which languages they speak.
  • Study a map of the Park prior to your arrival so that you have an idea of where you want to base your party.
  • Lockers, towels and life vests for children are available for rent. Life vests are provided free of charge for Guests who wish to leave an identification card.
  • If you want a sun lounger it’s a good idea to arrive early – especially in the summer!
  • Disney's Water Parks have a variety of snack food stands and counter service restaurants however there are also picnic areas where you can enjoy your own food, however no alcoholic beverages or glass containers are permitted.
  • Parking and inner tube usage are included with admission in each Water Park.
  • When arriving at the Parks if you head for the back and do those rides first they tend to be less busy.
  • If the big water chutes and slides are a little too fierce! Don’t worry there are plenty of gentler activities, my favourite are the "lazy rivers" that circle the entire Park. Hop in and relax!
  • Bring water shoes when visiting the Water Parks. The ground can get very hot and so will your feet!
  • During the busy summer months, the best time to visit a Disney Water Park is after 3 p.m.
  • Ladies if you intend to ride the big slides like Summit Plummet at Blizzard Beach and Humunga Kowabunga at Typhoon Lagoon you may wish to consider leaving the bikini at home and sticking with a one-piece swimsuit!

Blizzard Beach

  • Look for locker, towel and life jacket rental at Snowless Joe's — to the right after you enter.
  • Disposable underwater cameras, which are great for taking pictures on all of the water attractions, are available for purchase at Singapore Sal's near the main entrance but you can also buy them more cheaply in the supermarkets.
  • Swim wear with rivets, buckles or exposed metal is not permitted on the attractions.
  • Disney's Blizzard Beach is home to Summit Plummet, the tallest water slide in the whole U.S.A.

Typhoon Lagoon

  • Learn to surf at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon before the Park opens for $125 per person plus tax. Call 407-939-7529 for reservations.
  • There's no need for waterproof watches — you can always check the time on the Park's Clock Tower.
