This one-time ski resort that has melted into a wintry wonderland offers frosty fun for the whole family. Guests can traverse the slippery slopes of Mount Gushmore on one of the world's tallest water slides or float down a lazy river. For children under 48 inches tall, there is a water play area with a snow-castle fountain and wee-sized water slides.
Don't forget your sunscreen! Measure your child's height before you arrive at the Park so you know which attractions he or she is able to ride. All height requirements are listed on this Web site. Many Disney Cast Members are fluent in more than one language. The flags on their nametags indicate which languages they speak.
Study a map of the Park prior to your arrival to become familiar with the location of the attractions that interest you most. We recommend wearing one-piece swimsuits on the more thrilling attractions, including Humunga Kowabunga at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Summit Plummet at Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park. In addition, swim attire with rivets, buckles or exposed metal is not permitted on the attractions. Lockers, towels and life vests for children are available for rent. Life vests are provided free of charge for Guests who wish to leave an identification card.
Arrive early if you wish to secure a lounge chair. Disney's Water Parks have quick service restaurants and snack stands with a variety of offerings. There are also picnic areas where you may enjoy your own food, however, please note that no alcoholic beverages or glass containers are permitted. Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park is home to Summit Plummet, the tallest water slide in the whole U.S.A. Parking and inner tube usage are included with admission in each Water Park.
When arriving at the Parks, start at the back of the Park and make your way to the front, since the Parks tend to fill up faster in the front. Tired of zipping down water slides? Both Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park have "lazy rivers" that circle the entire Park. Hop in and relax! Bring water shoes when visiting the Water Parks. The ground can get hot and so will your feet! During the busy summer months, the best time to visit a Disney Water Park is after 3 p.m. Look for locker, towel and life jacket rental at Snowless Joe's, to the right after you enter.
