DISNEY WATER PARKS
Walt Disney World’s two water parks, Blizzard Beach near Animal Kingdom and Typhoon Lagoon near Downtown Disney, are the most-visited water parks in the country (for Typhoon Lagoon, in the world), with a combined total yearly attendance of almost 4 million. Unlike most ordinary water parks, each has a unique central theme. Blizzard Beach brings to life the absurdity of what would happen if a ski resort suddenly melted, while Typhoon Lagoon makes use of the runoff from a tropical storm for sliding and floating fun.
Both parks are big enough to spend several hours sliding, floating, or just soaking up the sun. Counter-service restaurants provide for a hearty lunch. If you have an extra $250 to spend, consider renting a private cabana for the day; they come with towels, lockers, a cabana attendant, and all the bottled water you can drink.
