Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon at Walt Disney World Resort is a must experience water park for all ages! Typhoon Lagoon boasts the largest wave pool in North America! Pumping out 6-foot waves every 90 seconds.
In addition to various raft rides and body slides, there is a lazy river that runs throughout the park. Look up from the river and see Ms. Tilly, a shrimp boat perched upon a mountain as the icon of Typhoon Lagoon.

Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park
Disney’s Blizzard Beach is the sister waterpark to the previously mentioned Typhoon Lagoon. Famous for their 360-foot long attraction Summit Plummet. Falling at speeds up to 60 miles an hour, it’s no wonder why Summit Plummet is considered the most-thrilling attraction in Walt Disney World.
Nevertheless, there are great options for the little ones as well. Multiple areas are designated for children of various ages. Tikes Peak is perfect for preschoolers with shallow pools and mini-scale slides. Older children can enjoy the ski patrol training camp; testing their balancing skills in the pool containing frozen icebergs.
Blizzard Beach is our pick for all-around water park experiences.
Sea World's Aquatica Water Park
Sea World’s Aquatica Water Park is a massive 63-acre adventure full of raft rides, body slides, and even a free-fall experience. Ihu Breakaway Falls is a free-fall experience like you never experienced before. Anxiously await your drop as you await in the tube. Not for the faint of heart!
One of the opening attractions, Dolphin Plunge is a unique experience as you slide through a huge dolphin tank! An interesting take on swimming with dolphins and a fun experience for kids and adults alike.

Universal Studios Volcano Bay
First opening in 2017, Volcano Bay has established itself as an innovative competitor to the other parks. Using a tapu tapu system, Volcano Bay maximizes relaxation while minimizing waiting through a virtual cue system. When first checking in you will be issued a bracelet that you can scan at various stations to “get in line” virtually while “experiencing the park” in reality. The Krakatau Volcano is the centerpiece of Volcano Bay boasting multiple invigorating water slides for adrenaline seekers. The signature attraction Krakatau Aqua Coaster is a unique combination of a water slide and a roller coaster in one thrilling experience.
This is our pick for a modern, clean experience.
