It’s hard to believe, but you could almost spend your entire Disney vacation in, on or near water and never run out of things to do. And it doesn't matter what time of year it is, because Orlando has the perfect climate year-round for frogs and water lovers alike! Even in the cooler months, November and December, when the average highs dip into the 70s, the resort pools remain open and heated!
Orlando water parks
Mommy Frog already spent a whole blog writing about the Orlando water parks, so all I will say about them is that my personal favorite is Blizzard Beach. I love Summit Plummet, the most awesomest ride ever. Check out the video I did of it, and you’ll see why!
Water sports and recreation
If water sports are your thing, then you can’t beat all there is to do at Walt Disney World. Many of them are located around the resorts, so they are super convenient if you’re staying on property, and they make a nice afternoon diversion after spending your morning in the park.
Looking for all of the most fun water sporting in one place?
It's at the Contemporary Resort. Parasailing (sort of a water sport), tubing, wakeboarding and watercraft rentals can all be done from the resort's marina through Sammy Duvall's Watersports Centre. If you like to stand up paddle board, which is way cool, Sammy Duvall's has just introduced it at Coronado Springs Resort. Side note: I wish you could have seen Dad the first time we went SUP boarding -- he turned around to get a better look at Lily when she was finally able to stand up and ended up losing his balance and falling in!
So you've always wanted to surf?
Surfing lessons are available from professional instructors at Typhoon Lagoon’s Surf Pool on select days before the park opens.
Boats, boats and more boats
So you say you like fishing?
So you like the water, you just don't want to get in it?
If you want to be near the water, you can enjoy one of many Disney beaches. Swimming is prohibited, but you can play, relax or sunbathe.
