    I'm in the midst of helping friends plan their trip to Disney, and they'd like to visit one of the water parks. They have two small children (3&6) and one teenager (13) in their party. I'm assuming the teenager will enjoy either water park, but would you suggest Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon for the smaller children?

    Blizzard beach has the separate play area for the smaller children. Given the massive wave pool in Typhoon Lagoon, this might not be so much fun for little ones.

    And if they are really naughty, just threaten them with Summit Plummet....

    I said 'threaten'.

    I didn't say 'take them to the top and shove them off'. That would be cruel.

    I'm a huge fan of Blizzard Beach. When we took out two at 2 and 6 it was perfect. The kid water area is fab, and teamboat springs is perhaps my favourite water ride ever!

    I have to say Blizzard Beach for me with smaller kids. When Gethin was small on our first trip I was a nervous wreck at Typhoon Lagoon because of the waves in the big pool. Even though he was in the shallow bit he did keep getting swept into the deeper bits. On top of that he ended up with so many cuts and crazes from the bottom of the pool when the waves Knocked him over.

    I love both the Disney water parks but Typhoon Lagoon is more geared for older children I would say, even in the shallows of the wave pool small children can be knocked over by the afterwaves that roll through (I know this as they knocked me over and I couldn't get back up and tey kept coming and I scraped my hands all on the rough bottom of the pool)
