Walt Disney World Resort is home to two such watery wonders—Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Both have their own unique attributes. Blizzard Beach follows the “cool” theme for having been a one-time ski resort, in which the snows have somewhat melted to create gushy goodness all around, from slushy slides, a still-operating ski lift, and so much more. On the flipside, Typhoon Lagoon embodies a tropical theme set in a stormy paradise and is laden with raging waters, sandy beaches, and warm weather wonders. Both are excellent options any time, whether the weather is bright and sunny or raining cats and dogs. In fact, like all Disney swimming, many claim that visiting the water parks during the rain adds an even more satisfying element to the overall outing.
