Disney World has two very distinct water parks: Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Typhoon Lagoon has a wave pool capable of making waves up to six feet. Blizzard Beach is newer and features more slides. Both water parks are beautifully landscaped, and a great attention is paid to the atmosphere and aesthetics. Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard beach have adjacent parking lots or can be reached using the Disney bus.

When purchasing a base Magic Your Way ticket for the Disney World Parks, guests will have the ‘Water Park fun and More’ option. This is one valid admission for one person to a choice of either Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon among other choices. Visitors can also purchase Water Park Single Day Tickets during the time of the reservations or at the Water Parks and Resorts. Guests can also use automated ticket-vending machines to purchase admission tickets at the Water Parks. These automated machines use touch-screen technology and should help reduce the amount of time spent standing in line at the ticket windows.

At the Water Parks, the following rules and prices apply:  towels are $1; lockers are $10 for small, $12 for large (includes a $5 refundable deposit); one cooler per family or group is allowed, but no glass or alcoholic beverages; life jackets are free with a $25 refundable deposit.

Like the other Disney World Parks, the water parks participate in the Extra Magic Hours. Each day, guests can enter either water park one hour before the park is opened to the public. During the summer months and some spring holiday periods, evening Extra Magic Hours are offered at Typhoon Lagoon only on two to five designated evenings a month; on these days, Typhoon Lagoon stays open until 10 pm, which is three hours beyond the normal closing time.
