Ask the Disney Moms

The Disney Moms Answer:

It depends on the 8 year old. Is he an adventure seeker? Will he be riding solo? How tall is he?

While both Water Parks are funtastic, Blizzard Beach is known for it’s “thrill rides” like Summit Plummet and Slush Gusher. There are three attractions at Blizzard Beach with height requirements of 48″ or more (only 2 at Typhoon Lagoon).

Here’s a map of both Disney Water Parks, check out the attraction descriptions, height requirements and consider which park looks best for your guy.
