Standalone Water Parks in Orlando

Disney's Blizzard Beach: Don't let the polar theme fool you — the water's always warm at Florida's only outdoor ski resort, which is one of two water parks at Walt Disney World Resort. After catching a chair lift up Mt. Gushmore, race down the slope on bobsled and toboggan-themed water slides. Then, enjoy a relaxing, 40-minute journey on the park's 3,000-foot-long lazy river.

Disney's Typhoon Lagoon: In 2017, this park welcomed its newest attraction, Miss Adventure Falls, a white-water raft adventure the whole family can enjoy together. You'll find nine water slides in total, plus one of the world's largest artificially created waves — which peaks at 6 feet high — all in the setting of a recently storm-tossed tropical lagoon.
