Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World’s Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach offer thrilling slides, family rides, lazy rivers, special toddler areas and wave pools, and each has its own distinctive theme. As the story goes, Typhoon Lagoon was formed when a “Disney legend” of a typhoon wreaked havoc upon a formerly pristine tropical paradise. Typhoon Lagoon is home to the world’s largest outdoor wave pool and even offers surf lessons before the park opens. (Blizzard Beach is currently closed for its annual refurbishment and is expected to reopen soon.)

Universal Orlando Resort

At Universal Orlando Resort, you won’t want to miss the South Pacific island-themed Volcano Bay. It features a similar mix of attractions, but what makes it stand out is its TapuTapu wearable technology. These bands are designed to give guests return times for each ride, eliminating the need to stand in line. That means more time to enjoy the park’s other attractions, including Krakatau Aqua Coaster — if you’re brave enough to try it!
