Exploring Disney World: The Water Parks

Orlando, Florida experiences hot, humid weather throughout the year and that is because of its sub-tropical climate. The warmest months are July and August when temperatures can reach an average of 31°C and between March and September, Florida observes very high levels of humidity.

When booking your once in a lifetime holiday to Disney World, Orlando, you are going to need to putsome thought into what time of year you should go with regards to the weather. Of course, we all want our skin to have that typical American sun kissed glow, but if you do find the humidity, and the intensely bright sunshine just too much to bare, then it would be well worth heading off for a day or two in the direction of the Disney World Resort water parks.

Disney World, Orlando has two water parks, offering a fantastic day of splashing and fun for the entire family. As a perfect way to escape the humidity and summer heat that graces Orlando, you can create fun filled memories at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park or alternatively try out Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. Both of these action packed water parks have a host of thrills and spills that anyone can enjoy. With exciting rides and plenty of space to relax and lounge, no trip to Disney World is complete without spending time at one of these magnificent water parks.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park brings a touch of winter back into those hot summer Orlando days. Boasting one of the world’s tallest and fastest free-falling water slides, this water park has all the thrills you need. While the park itself looks like a scene from some bizarre winter wonderland, there are lots of attractions that the whole family can enjoy. Complete with a fully functioning skislope inspired chair lift, this water park has water slides and fountains galore. Try a family style raft ride and enjoy time with the smaller members of your family in the specially designated pools. If you’re all about adventure and fun then spend your day at Blizzard Beach Water Park plunging down
the Runoff Rapids, float down the Cross Country Creek and dare yourself to race on the Toboggan Racers.

In addition, Disney World Orlando has its second water park just waiting for you to explore. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is set in tropical surroundings and evokes the sense that you are well and truly on a well-earned break away from it all. While the Typhoon Lagoon offers all the thrills and spills that one can only expect with a Disney Resort, this particular water park has a much more family orientated feel. What with the Lazy River, wave pool, and an abundance of children’s play areas, Typhoon Lagoon is a great escape for all the family. If you are feeling a little more adventurous however, Typhoon Lagoon has a host of attractions to satisfy every thrill seeker. Start off your day catching
the 6ft waves in the surf pool or try your hand at snorkelling in the Shark Reef where you can get up close and personal with some real life sharks and a plethora of other colourful fish. Boasting a total of nine exhilarating and fun waterslides, Gang Plank Falls, or the latest attraction on the resort, the Crush ‘n’ Gusher water coaster you can be assured of yet another action packed day on your Disney World holiday.

The Water Parks at Disney World, Orlando offer a cool and relaxing place for all the family to have fun and create magical memories that will last a life time.
