What can guests do to cool off if they don’t want be in the parks and hit up the “Cool Attractions:

Disney has two water parks, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach, where guests can go and cool off.  These water parks are not included in the standard park ticket unless guests choose the “Water Parks and More” option when purchasing their tickets.  One-day, one-park tickets can be purchased as well.  Tickets cost $53 for ages 10 and up and $45 for ages 3-9.

What do you get at these parks?

Each park has a very similar set-up which fit into the theme of the park.  Typhoon Lagoon’s theme is storm-ravaged tropical bay and Blizzard Beach has a “melting” ski resort theme.  There are three attraction areas in each park.

Typhoon Lagoon has a shark reef area which has two saltwater reefs where guests can snorkel through stingrays, sharks, and tropical fish.  This is included in the park admission.

The marquee attraction at Blizzard Beach is the Summit Plummet which features a 120-foot drop where guests can reach speeds approaching 60 miles per hour.
