    Which Disney Water park is better (or more fun) for children 3 and 7? Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach? Thanks for all of your help. This site is GREAT!!

    Hi Jacque,

    Both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are great options for your kids.  Each park has a fabulously-themed "kiddie" area for your three-year-old, with pint-sized slides, splash areas and sprinklers.  At Blizzard Beach, this area is called "Tikes Peak" and is a mini-replica of the entire park.  It has wonderful , shaded areas with picnic tables and lounge chairs, and is a good place to "set up camp" for the day.  At Typhoon Lagoon, the kiddie area is "Ketchakiddie Creek".  In my opinion, there are more attractions for little kids at Blizzard Beach, however, both have plenty of options for young children.

    Both parks also have tons of intermediate and more adventurous slides, pools and raft rides for your seven-year-old.  At Typhoon Lagoon, there is a giant wave pool and an opportunity to go snorkeling with sea life.  At Blizzard Beach, there is an amazing family raft ride (Teamboat Springs) that your entire clan can ride, as well as some fabulous slides and raft rides that are neither too "lame" nor too scary!   Both parks also have relaxing Lazy Rivers.  If I absolutely had to pick, I'd vote for Blizzard Beach, but I'm guessing either would make your kids very happy!

    Whichever park you chose, I'd recommend arriving early to secure a good, shaded spot to drop your gear.  I also suggest bringing your own towels to save on rentals.  Life jackets are available free of charge to all guests.  Have a great time!
