Need to cool off? Look no further than Disney's Blizzard Beach, a water park inspired by snow and winter sports. At the heart of the park is Mount Gushmore, which plays host to numerous chutes and slides—including the Summit Plummet, the world's largest and fastest free-fall body slide. There are attractions for all ages with Tike's Peak, a water play area for young children and Ski Patrol Training Camp, an area designed for pre-teens. Relax while floating down a tube on Cross Country Creek or take a dip in the pool of Melt-Away Bay. If you like water, you'll love Disney's Blizzard Beach.
Disney's Typhoon Lagoon is a dynamic water park with much more than just water slides, although it does have those in abundance. At Shark Reef, if you dare, you can snorkel in salt water with real sharks and tropical fish. Go early or stay late to learn how to surf in one of the world's largest wave pools. If you are searching for a more classic water park, Typhoon Lagoon has these attractions as well. Take a ride on the slow and relaxing Castaway Creek, let the little ones play in Ketchakiddee Creek, or go for the big thrills with speed slides or a water coaster!
