We've done all the major waterparks around there and the only ones that I would say had decent guest numbers were Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach, my personal fave is Aquatica and we've had a few visits there when there were more ride attendants than guests - we do visit in Jan/Feb though, so maybe summer numbers are crazy huge?


Aquatica has filled it's parking lot completely about half of the days in the last week, and Volcano Bay still keeps filling to capacity and near-capacity. There is a big demand for Waterparks here!
Remember: Get out there and RIDE!

There is definately a timeshare element to this development, wyndham is pushing it. It's going to be fairly close to Animal Kingdom.

The Margaritaville Resort in Biloxi was set to expand with rides and a state official was gumming up the works as he claimed it was state land and wanted the expansion pad reserved for casinos. I need to research to see where it stands, was tied up in court last year.

Here is something recent.

Haha I was thinking the same thing. I stay on that end of town fairly often and actually like that area but the traffic can be a pain. I would guess that when this resort opens From your room to the Magic Kingdom Parking Lot will be a solid 20-30 minutes if nto more depending on traffic.

I live in the area and if you just take the back road behind Chick Fil A you only have to go through one stoplight and can be to Animal Kingdom in 5 minutes. But, you are correct if you are traveling during rush hour or early in the morning when the parks are opening it will take longer.

I know exactly the short cut you speak of. I've used it dozens of times when we stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Waterslide pieces have started to arrive at Margaritaville Resort Orlando for the new water park that is scheduled to open in March of 2019. Infrastructure work is well underway along with site work. I am not sure, but from the plans I have seen of the park I believe the slides and attractions maybe from Whitewater West. Tower construction should begin later this summer.
