Since Walt Disney World is located in Central Florida, the property is blessed with wonderful weather for the majority of the year. In fact, that was a particular reason why the location was specifically chosen by Walt Disney himself. While Walt Disney World enjoys beautiful weather, it can also be subjected to incredibly high temperatures and humidity during the summer months, making many guests hot, sweaty, and tired after enjoying time in the parks. Luckily, there are some absolutely amazing places to cool off and get wet both in the four theme parks and outside of them. Some of these places offer guests the chance to just get a splash and cool down a little and some will leave the completely soaked! From attractions and play areas to pools and water parks, guests have no shortage on places to get wet. Here are eight favorite places for guests to get wet in Walt Disney World.
