    Never ever been to any of the waterparks in Florida. Have no intentions of ever going to a waterpark in Florida.

    How about you? Lover or hater?

    If I had to choose one, I'd go for Aquatica.

    wow perhaps I should go have a look some time. My only experience with them so far is when the bus stops off there on the way to a resort and a load of wet shivery people get on :lol:

    :lol:

    obviously i cant go on any rides anymore and that kills me but the lazy river is excellent a nice way to get to another part of the park without walking. the wavepool is just awesome, everyone here just loves it, its supposedly better now since the major rehab to it in 08/09 just laying on the beach there listening to the piped music like the beach boys adds to the overall experience. the perfect way to chill after a few days in the main parks.....i always do some filming and take photos there. for me they add to the holiday most definitley :yes:

    We've never actually been to an Orlando water park but we fully intend to go to bb and tl next year. I would be happy to float round the lazy river all day

    Normally we head to one of the Disney's water park the day after landing as relaxing on the lazy river make it worth while!!!!!

    Been on some of the slides and love it and every time we go there, I try and attempt to go on the bigger slide!!

    Normally we go about 3 or 4 times in two weeks (both water park)

    We absolutely love the Waterparks, especially Typoon lagoon and Blizzard Beach.

    The last 2 years we haven't done Disney apart from the Waterparks.

    Have been to Aquatica once and enjoyed it but like the Disney Waterparks better.

    You must go Keith, the lazy river is lovely and the rides are fab, we all love the family raft and I love the tubes at TL- the red slopes, middle run is in the dark and it my absolute favourite :yes:

    I guess my feelings are I'd rather be in a Disney park - or SW/BG/US etc. Any park before a waterpark.

    We have never done one. Of course we have never been with kids either :unsure:

    Mommy is very uncomfortable in a bathing suit, so we usually just avoid, but I don't know about this next trip. That sneezing gator is too cute though!:yes:
