How to get Disney water park tickets?

Let's start at the beginning: how to get Disney water park tickets.

It is important to emphasize: the income of the disney theme parks are not the same for water parks.

That is: you will not use the same tickets to enter Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon.

To purchase, you will need to obtain the single tickets sold by Disney.

The cost is USD $69 for those over 10 years old and USD $63 for those aged between 3 and 9 years.

According to Disney, the estimated price in reais is around R$ 264. But that depends a lot on the dollar exchange rate and other factors, so don't take this price too strictly.

A golden tip to save

Now, I'm going to give you a sensational bonus so that you can go to Disney's water parks and DOUBLE your tickets. Sounds great, right?

It's the ticket Park Hopper Plus.

It works like this: you buy the ticket and get the right to “jump” (hence the name, since hopper means jumper in English) between the parks.

With the traditional ticket, you can only enter one park on the day. But with Hopper, you can go on more than one in the same day. Hopper Plus gives you even more advantages.

One is that it opens up the range of parks you can visit. Let's clarify:

  • As normal ticket you can go on Magic Kingdom or Epcot or Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom. It's a one-day ticket for a single park visit;
  • As Hopper ticket, you can go to any of the 4 theme parks (or all) in the same day;
  • As ticket Hopper Plus you can go to any (or all) of the theme parks in the same day + you can go to the water parks and Oak Trail Golf Course, Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course, Winter Summerland and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

As you can see, Hopper Plus lets you go to many other places besides the theme parks. But the bonus doesn't end there..

The big secret of Hopper Plus is that it doubles the number of tickets destined for the theme parks to other places, such as the water parks or these sports facilities.

It works like this: imagine that you buy a ticket for 5 days at Disney parks (one at Epcot, one at Magid Kingdom, one at Animal Kingdom and one at Hollywood Studios).

With the Park Hopper Plus option, you get 5 MORE tickets to go to the water parks or other attractions mentioned above, such as the mini golf courses or ESPN Wide World of Sports. In total, you can go to establishments in the Disney in 10 days!

Therefore, if you want to go to Disney's water parks, you can try to separate your dates this way: buy Park Hopper Plus for the theme parks and get extra days in the water ones. Cool huh?

What to bring to Disney's water parks?

A water park like Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon requires a set of items that other parks don't, of course.

For example, you'll need a bathing suit, towels, and other items like that. For your best planning, check out the necessary below!

Swimsuit

Swimwear at the park must be “appropriate for a family environment”. In addition, they must not have buckles, zippers, exposed metal or rivets.

Also, they cannot be made of jeans or neoprene because some attractions do not allow this inside the parks.

For children who are still in diapers, it is necessary to bring swim diapers or plastic pants to the park.

Towels

You are not obliged to bring a towel to the park, only if you want to make your life easier.

Also, Disney has a towel rental service ($2 dollars each) in each park.

At Blizzard Beach, rentals are at the Beach Haus and Snowless Joe's.

While at Typhoon Lagoon, rentals are made at Singapore Sal's and High'n Dry Rentals.

Cabinets

In both parks there are spaces for renting lockers so you can store your belongings while you have fun.

The cabinets cost $8 dollars to $10 dollars depending on the size and are quite abundant. It will be easy to find one if you are not too lazy to look.

How to eat at Disney water parks?

The last point to finalize your planning so you can have fun at Disney's water parks is food.

After all, how to eat at Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon?

Each of the parks has a huge set of food options. There are at least 7 restaurants and snack bars at Blizzard Beach and many other establishments at Typhoon Lagoon, serving everything, but with a focus on snacks and fast foods.

There's even an option for Brazilian food there, you know? That's right: one of the establishments serves a dish with rice, beans, chicken and fried banana called Feijão com Arroz e Galinha (in Portuguese!). This dish is served at Typhoon Lagoon.

Another interesting detail is that both water parks have a soda refill system. It works like this: you buy a special mug sold on site for around $12 dollars and you can add as much soda as you want throughout the day. Then, of course, you take the mug home as a souvenir.

Summary: Are Disney's water parks worth visiting?

Yes! Without a doubt, visiting Disney's water parks is almost a must if you go to Orlando in the warmer months.

Of course it is hot in Florida almost all year round, but from May to September the temperature rises a lot and the average exceeds 30 degrees almost every day.

If you plan to visit Disney this time of year, make an effort and add at least two days to visit Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. You will not regret!
