Orlando water parks

Central Florida is warm almost year round so it’s the perfect place to plan a water park visit! Whether you call central Florida home or are vacationing at one of their world class theme parks, you can always cool off at these Orlando water parks.

Volcano Bay at Universal Orlando Resort

At the center of the park you’ll find Krakatau volcano, which also houses the Krakatau Aqua Coaster. You can enjoy body slides, drop slides, tube slides, raft rides, lazy river, and so much more. Your kids will love the Puka Uli Lagoon, featuring playful, interactive elements like bongo drums and spraying jets of water.

Volcano Bay uses TapuTapu wearable technology for guests to take advantage of virtual lines, make cashless payment,s, and more. When you arrive at Volcano Bay™, you’ll receive a complimentary TapuTapu™ to wear on your wrist throughout your visit.

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park at Walt Disney World Resort

Typhoon Lagoon is home to the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool, North America’s largest wave pool. The kids will love Bay Slides, twin body slides designed just for them and explore the Ketchakiddee Creek water play area. Thrill seekers can plunge down one of 3 Storm Slides; brave Mayday Falls, the highest and longest waterslide at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon; shoot the chute on Crush ‘n’ Gusher, the coaster-like raft ride; or race down Mount Mayday at a 60-degree angle on Humunga Kowabunga body slides. The whole family can float around the park in the Castaway Creek lazy river; enjoy a thrilling, whitewater voyage aboard a 4-person raft on Miss Adventure Falls; or enjoy a swift, scenic ride down Mount Mayday on Keelhaul Falls or the winding course of Gangplank Falls.

You can enjoy surfing at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park! They offer two options for surfing in the park. You can ride the wild surf in a private surf session (for up to 25 guests) or catch the stoke with a lesson for $199 per person, right in their safe, state-of-the-art wave pool.

Blizzard Beach at Walt Disney World Resort

Can you imagine a ski resort in central Florida? Blizzard Beach will make you feel like you’re ready to hit the slopes! From a chairlift to the ski patrol training camp and summit plummet, you’ll find the ski and “snow” theme all around.

You can float around the park in the 3,000 foot Cross Country Creek lazy river. Or, get the best view of the park from atop Summit Plummet before you plunge 12 stories, almost straight down. The kids will love Ski Patrol Training Camp play area, Snow Stormers water slides, and Tike’s Peak water play area. The whole family can tackle a whitewater journey down the “mountain” on Teamboat Springs. You can always splash around Melt-Away Bay, a one acre wave pool. There’s also the Downhill Double Dipper high-speed slides, 90-foot Slush Gusher water slide, Runoff Rapids tube slides, and Toboggan Racers, an 8-lane downhill slalom-style waterslide.

10 Fun Facts About Grim Grinning Ghosts from The Haunted Mansion

10 Fun Facts About Grim Grinning Ghosts from The Haunted Mansion

From the Disney Parks Blog:

“Grim Grinning Ghosts,” the theme of The Haunted Mansion, is both merry and spooky at the same time, and is perfectly fitting for one of our guest-favorite attractions. Of all the Disney Parks attractions with catchy theme songs, we can probably agree that we don’t mind when this one gets stuck in our heads.

Grim Grinning Ghosts

In honor of The Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary at Disneyland which was celebrated last August, here are 10 fun facts about Grim Grinning Ghosts the Haunted Mansion:

Grim Grinning Ghosts
  • The arrangement of the tune progresses throughout the attraction, starting off on an eerie piano in the library and funeral scenes, then bolder as organ music in the dining room and a whooping party in the graveyard scene.
  • “Grim Grinning Ghosts” hits a high note in the graveyard scene, where a set of singing busts await “to shriek and harmonize.” Did you know that each of these busts has a name? They are: Rollo Rumkin, Uncle Theodore, Cousin Algernon, Ned Nub and Phineas P. Pock.
  • The face of singer Thurl Ravenscroft appears on one of the singing busts – Uncle Theodore, which you can identify at Magic Kingdom Park attraction as the “broken” bust.
  • Buddy Baker, X. Atencio and Thurl Ravenscroft have all been named Disney Legends in years past for their contributions to Disney Parks and films.
  • The pop band Barenaked Ladies did a cover of “Grim-Grinning Ghosts” in 2003 for the film “The Haunted Mansion” which starred Eddie Murphy.
  • A reference to a “Grim Grinning Ghost” (note “ghost” is singular, not plural) appears in the William Shakespeare poem “Venus and Adonis” which was completed in 1593.

5 Ways to Take a Virtual Disney Vacation from Your Home

Thousands of guests have had to cancel or reschedule their Disney vacations this spring due to the global pandemic. Many were planning to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, first visit, or just being at Disney. We could all use some pixie dust and Disney magic to lift our spirits during these trying times. We have five ways that you can take a virtual Disney vacation from your own home while the parks are closed.

Virtual Disney Vacation

Set the Scene

You need to get all ready for your virtual Disney vacation! You and your home need to look the part!

Order a backdrop of Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland or backdrop of Cinderella Castle at Disney World so you can feel like you’re in the middle of the magic. You will also need some music for your day! Check out the Disney Parks hits on Apple Music. You can also order the Walt Disney World Official Album or the Disney Theme Parks Classics CD.

Don’t forget to wear your Mickey ears or Minnie ear headbands! There are so many cute Minnie ear headbands available like these mint green ears with a pink bow, magic mirror metallic ears, flower ears, Epcot inspired with German flag ears, Buzz Lightyear ears, navy blue with pink polka dot ears, Mardi Gras ears, millennial pink ears, Disney Parks 2020 ears, or birthday ears.

You’ll also want your Disney shirts! Some of our favorites include this Never Grow Up shirt, “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” shirt, Minnie Mouse polka dot t-shirt, Pizza Planet shirt, boys Toy Story shirts, Mickey Mouse sunset shirt, Hakuna Matata shirt, girls Disney Princess shirts, Star Wars shirt, and Villains shirt. This “I’m done adulting, let’s go to Disney” shirt may sum up all our sentiments perfectly.

You can also read about how the magic is made throughout the parks and resorts with the new One Day at Disney book.

With spring just around the corner, it’s time for the return of the 2020 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival at Walt Disney World Resort! Join us for fun, flowers, and most importantly, FOOD! This year’s festival features 16 Outdoor Kitchens and several other locations through the park that will be offering delectable festival bites and libations.

In addition to the returning Outdoor Kitchens like The Honey Bee-stro, The Citrus Blossom, Trowel & Trellis, and Flavor Full Kitchen, there is a new kitchen in The American Adventure called Magnolia Terrace as well as a variety of new offerings, including a selection of plant-based offerings, throughout all of the menus. Check out all of these offerings and more for the 2020 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival detailed below in my official Foodie Guide! The festival runs now through June 1, 2020.
