Waterpark, BB or TL


We are thinking of visiting one of the 2 Disney waterparks tomorrow. Would you recommend BB or TL for girls 9 and 11? Any other tips for our waterpark visit?

BB has more thriller rides, imo, I would choose that one.

Do they swim well? <-- though both parks are very safe

Are they afraid of heights?

They like heights and are ok swimmers but I do not think they want to try the biggest rides but they like tuberides. Family rides and lasy river is the only thing I will try.

I prefer TL but maybe that's becauseI am a non swimmer?! I loved the lazy river and I even went on Crush n Gusher with my Husband and Son!

Another vote for blizzard beach - my 10 & 8 year old love it! Wear water shoes as ground is concrete (sun bathing areas sand) & can be hot & rough. Be careful in wave pool as floor is rough also had a few scrapes!

Hi-My vote is for TL if you are going during a crowded time. Although BB seemed on the surface to have more rides, etc that my boys would like, the wait time for many of them was crazy (and we get there 1st thing in the AM, too). Because one of the main attractions at TL is the gigantic wavepool, it seems to make the lines more manageable (I think because a) if there are huge lines you can always go to the wavepool and , b) so many people are enjoying the wavepool that they are not in line for other things.)

This is just based on our own experience going in mid-june.

i dont think it is possible for me to visit a waterpark without a few scrapes whether it be toes on the floor in the lazy river/wave pool or scraped knees and elbows. I sort of expect it now.

I prefer BB but both disney waterparks have there good points so if you could try to squeeze in both.
