    I have never been to Blizzard Beach either. Great video as usual.


  2. Kevin Nelson says:

    Thanks Rick, I’ve never been to either of Disney’s water parks, I need to change that next trip! It looks like a lot of family fun though! Our must do next trip is The Tower of Terror and Rockin’ Roller Coaster, my boys are getting tall enough and have expressed an interest in riding the attractions! They said the same thing about Space Mountain and when they got off said, “I’m never doing that again, to rough and dark”. I told them the Rockin’ Roller Coaster is much smoother and way more awesome! We will see! Thanks again Rick, keep smilin, brother!


  3. The last water park I was at was River Country, that was a LONG time ago. I have not been to either of the existing water parks. I would love to try Victoria and Alberts if anyone is willing to pay ….LOL

    Hey Rick
    Thank you for sharing this video. I have been to all 4 theme parks and both water parks. Blizzard Beach is ok, but Typhoon Lagoon is my personal favorite. I do like Blizzard Beach, but it crowds up so fast. This year we are going to go after 2:00PM. I read on a website that the water parks clears out after 2:00. I have never done Tom Sawyer Island at the Magic Kingdom. So this year, it is a must do. Have a good week, Rick. See you next week.

    Hi Rick! Great video this week! My wife and I aren’t pool people so we’ve never been to any Disney Water parks but it sure is nice getting to see what goes on at Blizzard beach. Perhaps you can do a Typhoon Lagoon video someday as well. That would be great. Because we have been to WDW so many times we pretty much know what attractions we like and/or don’t like so I would have to say that the new version of Star Tours will be our next must do attraction when we go in September.

    Nice aquatic work Rick!!
    I love the Disney H2O parks! The lazy rivers are worth the admission price alone.
    While Blizzard Beach is my favorite, let me second the request for a Typhoon Lagoon show!

    The only thing inside of Disney World I’ve never done is the Wide World of Sports complex. Is that what it’s still called??? Perhaps the recent ESPN theming has changed the name.
    The fact that I’ve never visited there would shock my friends, because I’m about as big a sports nut as there is. But as of yet, I haven’t been. Hopefully I’ll make my way over and have lunch there on a coming trip.

    Hey Rick,

    Great video. I am glad you finally showed a water park. My favorite water park is Typhoon Lagoon and it is a must do! Other must do’s are: Pirates Of The Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, Soarin’, Fantasmic, Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids,Kilimanjaro Safaris and Illuminations at Epcot. I have never done Test Tack at Epcot. It is on my list. One thing I have been planning to do is “Leave A Legacy” at Epcot. I just quickly searched in online and found out that they stopped doing it in 2007.

    See you next week Rick.



  9. Steve says:

    Another great video as always. Our family has not gone to either of the water parks or Tom Sawyer Island. Our next trip isn’t until 2013 but I know when we go we are planning a dat or two at a water park.
    Looking forward to your next video!!

    Hi Rick,
    My husband and I never visit the waterparks but they do look like fun. My
    grandchildren will love these parks though when they go for their first WDW trip in September.

    Since we have been at DW many times we are looking forward to the new
    Star War attraction. I watched the opening ceremony online and that was great.

    Just a little note to say this video cheered me up. We had to put down our 18 year old lab yesterday so I was feeling pretty sad today.He was a wonderful pal.


  11. Paul says:

    Hi Rick,
    Great video. I go to both water parks on every visit to WDW. They are both a must do for me. I’ve made a few videos as well in the parks.
    Check out my Typhoon Lagoon.


  12. Penny Serrato says:

    Seems there are a lot of people who have never visited Blizzard Beach. I have not either. We felt like the pools etc at the resorts were always enough for us. Looks like fun but probably won’t go. Must do things list is too long to put here 😉

    want some good advice? don’t wait til 2 to get there! it’s no different than any other park–get there when it opens! definitely get there when it opens if you go in the summer months! my family was the family of the day when we went last week. (we were because we were there early & were chosen at random…lucky) we opened up the park by being 1st in, & the 1st to go down summit plummet! rode summit 3 times! we were also given an awesome cabana for the day for free! get there early, ride the big slides 1st, eat lunch, then the lazy river in the afternoon…we had a great time & so will you…blizzard beach is awesome…….


  14. Peggy Hickey says:

    My family usually goes to WDW in the cooler months to escape the crowds, but one year we went in May and it was scorching, so we went to Blizzard Beach. I loved it.
    It’s been almost 8 years since my last WDW visit, (I know! I can’t believe it’s been that long either) so my must do list is very long. I have never been on Expedition Everest, so I just have to try that. Also the updated Star Tours, and whatever else was changed since 2003. Long list. I need at least two weeks… and a winning lottery ticket. 🙂


  15. Kristine says:

    Great video. We have done both water parks but not since 2004, I think it’s time to go back. My daughter really wants me to ride Splash Mountain since I’ve never done it so I’m going to try to get up the nerve to ride it when we are there in August.


  16. Kim andb Sue says:

    would love to see information on Segway tours at Wilderness Lodge and EPCOT


  17. Sue M. says:

    Love the Disney water parks. Thanks for the video, can’t wait to go in August. I had to think awhile of what we haven’t done, and we haven’t gone to Wild World of Sports or the Mini Golf. I think we may try the mini golf next trip.


  18. John Broadwater says:

    The must do for us is the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, Expedition Everest,and Blizzard Beach. these are the only thing we haven’t done as yet.I sure wish I had a job like yours. Thanks for a great show


  19. Gary Watson says:

    Loved this video. Personally I prefer Typhoon Lagoon as the wave pool is fantastic, but on a trip to WDW we visit both water parks.
