We always spend at least one day of our Disney World trip at a water park… this year we chose Blizzard Beach. The Disney water parks are the best we have ever been to! Details, Details, Details… is what makes them so great! Disney takes the theme and immerses it into every aspect. Blizzard Beach is a winter wonderland in the middle of central Florida. In our opinion, this is the better of the two water parks for kids because of the Tike’s Peak area and especially the Ski Patrol Training Camp! This area is so much fun with giant ice blocks you have to balance on to cross to the zip line that drops you into the pool. Unfortunately, parents and teenagers are not allowed to join in on the fun, but the kids have a great time.
We started our day by staking out a spot for our stuff and heading over to Cross Country Creek, the huge lazy river that circles the park. We stayed on about halfway until we reached the very back of the park where the lines for the slides are the shortest. We had so much fun on Runoff Rapids that we went on it several times. While there was no line, the climb up the huge hill/stairs can wreak havoc on your tired legs… Next we found the next set of slopes and raced each other on the Toboggan Racers then needed some relaxation after all these slides and spent some time in Melt-Away Bay, the huge wave pool. After we were rested up and ready for some more thrill, we took the chair lift up to the top peak of the park. The line for the chair lift can be long, but it moves quickly and is worth the wait for the view! From this high point you can take one of the ultimate thrill slides down… Slush Gusher or the super thrilling Summit Plummet. But we were on a different mission… our absolute favorite slide in the world and arguably the best ride on Walt Disney World property which is Teamboat Springs. This is a family raft ride that starts way at the top of the park and is very long. It is full of twists and turns and drops that is the ultimate experience at this park!!!
After lunch and another float down the lazy river, we called it a day so we could go back and get ready for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
