Timing the Water Park visitwater park planning to avoid crowds
From Lolly AllenI'd love to get advice on avoiding crowds and finding the shortest lines in the water parks, particularly in Orlando. Are certain water parks just always crowded? What are the times to avoid them and the times to go? Last year I went to Blizzard Beach in February and had the time of my life, as there were no lines at all... especially first thing in the morning!

From Anthony MurphyGoing Early is probably the best advice for any water park, especially the Orlando parks!

Usually, the weather is the best (sun is bearable in the morning vs noon time), you can find nice seating to put your stuff down, there are shorter lines, and knowing Flordia, it usually rains around 1pm to 3pm almost like clockwork. Going as the park opens allows you to catch everything before 3pm, have a nice lunch, and allow you to have a relaxing early evening.
As for the winter months, its hit or miss because usually Disney has one water park down, but going early has always served me well!
