Orlando’s Thrilling Water Parks
Orlando’s themed water parks offer an ocean of wonderfully wet experiences you won’t soon forget — including water slides galore, miles of lazy rivers, and some of the best wave pools in the country. Better yet, no matter how cold it might be back home, Orlando’s year-round gorgeous weather and heated waters means that almost any day can be a pool day while you’re here. Slather on the sunscreen, grab some cool sunglasses and a waterproof camera, and get ready to dive into the splashiest fun imaginable at incredible water parks throughout the destination!
Universal’s Volcano Bay
From thrilling water slides to secluded waterfalls, Universal’s Volcano Bay at Universal Orlando Resort is a water theme park like no other. Split into four distinct areas anchored by the towering, 200-foot-tall Krakatau volcano, the park is a stunning testament to the Waturi philosophy: “Water Is Life and Life Is Joy.”
Disney’s Blizzard Beach® Water Park
Presented as a ski resort melting in the Florida sun, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park at Walt Disney World Resort features ski slopes and toboggan runs that can be enjoyed as slushy, downhill waterslides, plus a chairlift that transports swimmers and sliders instead of skiers. But despite the wintery setting, the water is always warm! Reservations are required.
Currently, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon® Water Park is closed.
Visit paradise without a passport at Discovery Cove, where your family can get close to bottlenose dolphins, snorkel through coral reefs or lounge about in your own private cabana with all-inclusive amenities such as meals, snacks and beverages throughout the day. Reservations are required.
Part of the SeaWorld® Orlando family, Aquatica Orlando combines lush beaches and wave pools, unique animal experiences with Commerson’s dolphins and an exotic fish grotto, and a playful personality.

If you’re visiting Orlando with little ones, you can build a day of aquatic fun — literally — at LEGOLAND Florida Resort’s onsite water park, which is available as an add-on to regular park admission.
Island H2O Live!
Adjacent to Margaritaville Resort Orlando, the brand-new Island H2O Live! water park is the first of its kind in that it’s themed completely around social media. Streaming and posting your experience is all a part of the fun — simply sync up your wristband with their app and make some waves!
