Itinary planning - how long for Aquatica?

Sorry another question pretty much the same as my other post. This time for Aquatica......

is it an all-day visit or half day? (we're probably going on a Sunday in which case it opens at 10am i believe)

Thanks again

catherine

Its a hard one that different things can affect this ... we normally get there around 10 ish and leave around 3 but if its a nice hot day then will stay longer or if its not too good leave a bit early . We usually use the wster parks as a " rest day " and tend to just go with the flow

We managed to stay all day, until they were throwing us out at closing lol. However it could easily be a half day too, depends on your circumstances, as Jayne suggests, go with the flow. I plan to allocate a whole day to it but if we have had enough, we'll leave early.

We go when the hours are 10-5 and usually spend the whole day there or very close to it.

Thank you all for your replies, we've alloted 10-3 so that afterwards we can hit the shops aswell :-)

Not much time in the schedule as we are only visiting for a week - sadly!

Opening to around 15:00 was long enough for me.

We managed to do all the rides in a very hot June.

Leaving at 15:00 gives you time to explore or go to the malls or to Downtown Disney.

We also use water park days as rest days. We get there around 9 and I warn my daughter we are going to leave at about 3:00 so she can do a few more things and then we are out between 3:30 and 4:00.

This year we are doing 3.

Aquatica and then Disney Boardwalk and Cape May dinner

Typhoon Lagoon with Cirque du Soleil and T-Rex dinner

Blizzard Beach with DTD and Raglan Road dinner - Maybe check out Disney Quest

I probably look forward to those days the most.
