Helpful Tips for Families Visiting Disney’s Water Parks With Little Ones

Water Parks Little Ones

A question we get asked a lot at Disney Addicts is if it is worth visiting Disney World’s incredible Water Parks- Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon with little ones.  Our answer is a resounding yes! Your tiny tots can have a spectacular time splishing, splashing and sliding their way through either park. Both parks have options to appeal to the whole family including playful theming, delicious goodies, incredible slides from the thrilling to the relaxing and even character meet and greets!  To help you and your little one have an amazing visit to Disney World’s water parks, here are a couple helpful tips!

Seek out the kid-friendly attractions – Some of our favorite attraction for tiny tots include Ketchakiddee Creek at Typhoon Lagoon and Tike’s Peak at Blizzard Beach. Both of these areas offer themed activities specially tailored to small visitors.  They include smaller slides, mini inner tube rides, water play areas and 6-inch wading pools. Typhoon Lagoon also offers the S.S Squirt interactive tugboat.  Over at Blizzard Beach, you’ll also find a squirting snow-castle fountain that is a huge hit with little ones.  Both areas are tailored for kids between the ages of 2-5 years or under 48″.

Hang out with some of your favorite Disney friends – Character meet and greets aren’t limited just to the four theme parks.  At Typhoon Lagoon your little ones can rub elbows with Lilo and Stitch.  Over at Blizzard Beach Goofy has been known to make an appearance.

Save room for some tasty treats – Kids will love some of the amazing goodies you’ll find at the eateries at both water parks.  Some of our favorites include mini powdered sugar donuts which come with yummy chocolate and fruit toppings.  Or there’s the infamous Sand Pail Sundae.  This decadent treat is big enough for the whole family to sample and comes with chocolate and vanilla soft-serve ice cream topped with waffle cone pieces, Oreo cookie pieces, hot fudge, caramel sauce, whipped cream and cherry which is served up in a sand pail. It even comes with a shovel!

No floaties, no worries!- Don’t worry if you didn’t pack your pool floaties.  Disney’s water parks provide complimentary life vests for small children providing parents with that extra peace of mind.  You’ll see the racks throughout both parks.  Other essentials like sunscreen are available to purchase at the onsite gift shops.

Lots of seating and private cabanas – If you’re visiting the Water Parks with little ones, chances are you’ll spend a fair chunk of time relaxing, taking breaks or maybe you’ll even wait to squeeze in nap time.   Luckily both water parks offer plenty of comfortable seating to relax and unwind in between water activities.  For those looking for a bit of privacy, cabanas are also available and include a locker, towels and refillable mugs.  We think they are the perfect place to have a wee cat nap.  You’ll even have a cabana attendant who will bring you meals and snacks! For more information regarding cabana reservations or pricing, reach out to your travel agent or call 407-WDW-PLAY.

So be sure to set aside some time during your next Walt Disney World visit to take advantage of all the exciting offerings Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon have to offer!
