Here's An Overview of Disney World Resort Parks

Animal Kingdom

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park

When the natural worlds of both fantasy and reality meet, Disney World Resort’s “circle of life is complete.” This safari-theme park is home to animals that compliment characters from movies like The Jungle Book, Dumbo, Finding Nemo and The Lion King. There are equally-nostalgic shows, too, from Festival of the Lion King to Finding Nemo – The Musical.

Here you’ll discover Africa, Asia, DinoLand U.S.A., Discovery Island and Pandora – The World of Avatar. And you’ll even find some of the most otherworldly experiences throughout, from the Rivers of Light show to the Tree of Life Awakenings. And with equally-remarkable attractions on top, making use of FastPass+ is highly recommended. 

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park

Disney World Resort’s two water parks tend to be overlooked when one thinks of the resort. And Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park isn’t just your kind of place – it’s Olaf’s kind of place, too. You see, this frost-filled, once-ski resort has long since melted into a watery world – which is no surprise considering it sits under the Florida sun!

Here you can even “chill” like Olaf with a Polar Patio – a shaded private deck so that you and your family don’t melt everywhere. But there are also thrilling rides such as Slush Gusher and Summit Plummet. And for more tranquil experiences, enjoy Cross Country Creek and Melt-Away Bay. Best not invite Olaf to that last one, though.

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park

The second water park is equally-awesome. If you enjoy the Slush Gusher, then check out the roller coaster/raft ride-hybrid of sorts Crush ‘n’ Gusher. Or brace yourself for a big drop in the dark with Humunga Kowabunga (try shouting it on the way down). And make waves in the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool - just don’t expect to control the water like Moana.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park might be more suited to Olaf, but at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park you’ll feel like a little mermaid. Either way, both of these splash-tastic water parks prove that, sometimes, down where it’s wetter it really is better. Just be sure to review all ticket types so that you can include them in your Disney experience.

Breaking your visit down into the six parks will make it seem less daunting. And doing your research will also equip you with the knowledge needed to put together an itinerary and get the most out of it all. Then, your adventure will be “trouble-free”, and you’ll soon be chanting that wonderful phrase!
