Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon Water Park Details and Touring Plans Available

Share This!

TyphoonLagoonMapOnlyJust in time for the winter holidays! (Yeah, we know that’s what you were thinking.) For those of you already planning a spring or summer 2010 trip to Walt Disney World, we’ve added full coverage of Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach water parks to the site.

We’ve also created touring plans for each park, for adults and for parents with small children (under 48″) who can’t quite yet ride some of the more intense slides. These touring plans are the first to feature full color maps of the parks. And to save on ink when you’re printing these at home, the backgrounds for each page are not colored.

Disney’s water parks are larger and more heavily themed than almost any water park you’ve seen. If your upcoming WDW trip includes a day at either, a subscription to the site will tell you what you need to know to have fun.

    Thanks for this great article and the touring plans. Just a quick question – do you have any sense of about how long it would take to follow the Blizzard Beach plan for adults? We are planning a half day there on April 17th. I know a lot depends on crowds but was wondering if we could complete the touring plan from 10 – 2.

    Hey Michelle! The plans take about half a day, maybe a bit more. It really depends on how much time you spend in the lazy rivers and in the wave pools.

    I love Typhoon Lagoon. No that’s not a strong enough word. I “lurv” Typhoon Lagoon. Especially the flowers, trees, landscaping, paths, bridges, etc. which I would pay to visit all alone even if there were no slides or waves.

    But that said, for the last 2 trips to Orlando we haven’t bothered to visit any water park. Our reasoning goes like this – a water park day should be a “day off” or rest day in between theme park visits, i.e. we would really like to sleep in. But if we sleep in, then (in the summer when we visit) the lines are too long by late morning for it to be any fun (at least, not $200 plus fun which is what it would cost us to float in the lazy river and play in a very crowded wave pool).

    So on both of our last visits, the fambly unanimously voted to go to the beach instead, which is just as fun as any water park (especially for us landlubbers who live far from the ocean). We’ve been to Cape Canaveral in the east and Venice in the west and we like them both.

    Outside of the busy season, or if you’ve never been to one of the Disney water parks, then I definitely recommend that people visit them, with TL being the definitive choice for gardening/landscaping freaks.

    I’ve really enjoyed the crowd calendars for planning purposes, but the water parks don’t appear to be listed. In your book, you recommend going on the weekends. Are the crowds significantly different then? Are there certain days of the week that are better to go than others?

    Also, is it possible to leave the water parks and re-enter? If we want to head back to our hotel to avoid the midday heat and crowds, can we? Thanks!
