We have now visited both Disney water parks. Blizzard is my favourite as I think it has more to offer, but Typhoon is still well worth a visit.
Again, get there early to get a good seat and get straight onto some rides as the queues are shortest first thing.
We took our refillable cup we brought at Blizzard Beach and paid for a sticker ($7) for our drinks all day. Well worth the money if your going to be there a long time.
Typhoon Lagoon has a wave pool and is the biggest wave pool in North America. Word of warning – it is powerful and the surface of the bottom of the pool is quite rough. Lots of people got scrapes and cuts if the waves knocked them over.
The food is pretty average here. All counter service. Quite reasonable. We ate for $30. We also took a cool bag with water and snacks for the duration of the day.
Whilst we were here a big storm broke out around 4pm. Everyone has to leave the water but the park doesn’t shut. If the storm passes the park and rides reopen. But if it doesn’t, the park can shut and if you’ve brought a ticket that day specifically for the water park, you do not get a refund.
We sat at Ketchakiddie Creek which is an area for kids under 48″, perfect for Faye. One reason I preferred Blizzard to Typhoon was because the lockers, toilets, food outlets and drink refill stations were much closer to the seating area and when you have a three year old who needs something every half an hour it makes life easier when they’re closer. Or maybe I’m lazy!?
