So, where to start? Well, fortunately this popular holiday destination’s waterparks are conveniently close together. You’ll find two at Disney World and four more on International Drive.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park - Disney World

Themed as a melted ski resort, Blizzard Beach offers plenty of family fun in the beautiful Florida climate. Enjoy a chairlift ride to the top of Mount Gushmore and tackle the Summit Plummet waterslide, the gentler Slusher Gusher waterslide and the family-style whitewater raft ride, Teamboat Springs. Don’t miss the Downhill Double Dipper, Runoff Rapids, Toboggan Racers and Tike’s Peak. Take it easy on the white sandy beach at Melt Away Bay or enjoy its gentle wave pool. There’s also a dedicated water play area for tots with appropriately sized water slides.

SeaWorld and Aquatica - International Drive

For those who love thrilling rides with a large helping of water-loving animals, SeaWorld and Aquatic both meet the brief. SeaWorld is home to super-fast rides, Kraken and Manta and Aquatica sees new ride, Ihus Breakaway Falls, opening this May. Both parks offer adrenalin-fuelled thrills, as well as exhibits, shows and behind the scenes tours, featuring penguins, dolphins, sea lions and more. Don’t miss killer whale Shamu at SeaWorld.


Discovery Cove - International Drive

Discovery Cove is all about getting up close and personal with the water’s inhabitants. From swimming with dolphins and playing with otters in the Freshwater Oasis, to snorkelling with tropical fish in The Grand Reef. A beautiful beach and the winding Float Away River offer relaxation in abundance and kids will love hand-feeding the exotic birds in the Free-flight Aviary.
