Swampy the gator coming to Disney Water Parks

Swampy the Gator from Disney's hit video game Where's My Water is apparently coming to Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.

Wow, do you know when this will happen? We will be there in a couple of weeks and will be going to both TL and BB (first time to both). My kids are huge fans of Swampy and the Where's My Water app (they beat me all the time in that game ), they would be so thrilled to see and get a picture with him while we are at one of the 2 water parks .

I hope it's soon! We'll be at TL in a few weeks and my DS loves Swampy.

Huh, that's a first. An original character by Disney that originated in a videogame showing up at a Disney Park (Unless you count that Club Penguin nonsense)

And yet, still no Oswald.

DD would love to meet Swampy. She and DH are addicted to Where's My Water lol. We won't be there until September though, and he'll probably be gone by then.

My kids claim they saw a Swampy in the Blizzard Beach section of the vacation planning DVD, looked like a fountain in the kid area. I told them that was cool because they love the game, but didn't go back and check in case they were mistaken.

Ice Gator and Lagoona Gator.

I think they should all team up with Ben Ali, Tick Tock and Louis.

I have a picture with the gator from BB. He was walking around, though I can't remember if he went into the water. I have pics of Goofy in the wave pool at TL.

I would love to see Oswald, maybe when they release Epic Mickey 2, Oswald will make an appearance. (Probably just wishful thinking.)
