Walt Disney World Water Parks

The Disney World Resort is home to two awesome water parks; the Blizzard Beach and the Typhoon Lagoon. Each of these theme parks is home to a variety of rides and attractions. Typhoon Lagoon is themed after a massive typhoon that wrecked the park, and Blizzard Beach is melting snow that fell in Florida after a freak snow storm. These two water parks are the perfect way to cool off while you are in the Sunshine State!


Blizzard Beach top

This water park ranks #2 in the United States. Think of Florida, and the word "SNOW" does not naturally come to mind. This whimsical water park is built on the concept of a freak winter storm dropping snow over the western side of Walt Disney World, just north of the All Star Resorts. An immediate plan is made to open a ski resort. Things do not go as planned, however, as temperatures soar and the ice and snow rapidly melt. The ski resort is ready to close, until the operators spot a playful alligator sliding down the "liquid ice" slopes and realize that the melting snow is creating the tallest and fastest water-filled ski and toboggan runs in the world. From this concept, the ski resort/water park adventure was born. More...


Typhoon Lagoon top
This 56-acre water park would most likely be the choice of FISH if they could choose an amusement park, as Typhoon Lagoon features some of the wettest and wildest attractions at Walt Disney World. Before Blizzard Beach opened, Typhoon Lagoon was the largest water park on property. It is still immensely popular, with its twisting tides, roaring rapids, wonderful waterways and relaxing rivers. Typhoon Lagoon also features a special area where guests can snorkel among live sharks and other tropical fish. Excluding the snorkeling area, all water is heated to a toasty 75-80 degrees year-round. More...
