Exclamation Typhoon Lagoon - how busy will it be on the weekends?

This has probably come up before but I am leaving in TWO DAYS and I just now saw something that said going to the waterparks on a weekend is a bad idea because of locals.

I had planned to go on Sunday (at opening). I tried shuffling it around in the plan and it really won't fit anywhere else easily.

How bad will it really be?

Hi,

I don't think it will be too bad. In general it's still a little chilly in the morning for the locals.

I am from the Great White North. It didn't occur to me that locals would still think it was cold there in the mornings...

O yes I was wondering the same thing b/c we are going on May 15.
perfectparanoia :Did you also get the deal that included a free upgraded ticket for the water parks and more option? I didn't realize that the waterparks don't open until 10 though. O well still love the waterparks, hopefully it won't be too crowded Have a lovely time!

Nope. I am a DVC member and just happen to be going. DH has always wanted to go to a waterpark and we have never had the time before.

I'm a local and we do go early. We usually get there at the park opening. Yes it is a little on the chilly side, but we hate the lines out in the sun later in the day. You can ride just about everything you want in the park within the first 2 hours. We're usually getting ready to leave by lunch. The Florida sun gets brutal and even though I live here, I've learned a few hard lessons about sunburn. Plus, the parks reach capacity often during the summer months so you want to arrive early.

As long as you get there at opening you shouldn't have a problem at all. We always go at opening and you can do virtually every slide without a line for a good 1 1/2 hours. Crowds then start to grow and so you go to the wave pool.
