Almost everyone will spend some of their time at the Disney Blizzard Beach Melt Away Bay Wave Pool because it is not only a central point in the park but it is also very relaxing. If you have spent time at other Water Parks you are probably already familiar with how most Wave Pools work. There is a big Lagoon area that is designed like a beach with Zero-Entry access to the full water area. As you go out deeper, the anticipation grows as you wait for the swell of water to build into a large wave and carry you closer to the shallow section of the pool. Melt Away bay is not what most people would consider as a typical wave pool. Although this large swimming pool is a full 1 acre in size and will accommodate everyone who visits the park, you will not see a settling of the water, waiting for the Big One to hit. What you will get is a constant, more gentle, bobbing wave motion that keeps you and your float moving up and down the whole time you are in the water. If you are wanting the most intense experience available at this park, make your way out to the walls closest to where the wave motion is created. This will draw you back and forth with the full power that is used to create the waves. Don’t get me wrong, this pool is a lot of fun and really makes it much easier for the smaller kids to relax and enjoy their surroundings. Just don’t expect it to knock you off of your feet.
If one of your biggest pleasures in visiting a Water Park is fighting against some really big waves, you really should consider visiting the Wave Pool at Disney Typhoon Lagoon. This unbelievable pool was created as a one of a kind attraction back in the 80’s and is still the largest of its kind in North America. What makes it so unique is the ability to make waves that are designed to curl just like the ones you see in the ocean. In fact, looking at the waves crash on the beach, you would swear they were not man made. When you are out in the pool, you will be waiting for waves up to 6 feet in size. This is big enough to ride all the way in to the bank. The other crazy feature about this Wave Pool is, you can sign up for Surfing lessons with a Professional Surf Instructor. All of this happens before the park opens and there are only a limited number of slots available so you will want to reserve early if you are interested in Surfing. There are many attractions at Blizzard Beach that have Typhoon Lagoon beat but in my opinion, the Wave Pool is not one of them.
