Best Day to Visit

The best days to visit Aquatica Orlando are Monday-Wednesday. In general, almost all weekdays are always great options, as the water park historically holds lower crowds in this timeframe.

Out of state visitors usually arrive on Thursdays, stay for the weekend, and then leave on a Monday. Additionally, most of the locals are in school or working during the weekdays!

By going to the parks on Monday-Wednesday, you'll be able to avoid most of the crowds that can quickly fill up the water park.

This means less waiting in lines, and more experiencing the actual water park.

Best Time of Day to Visit

As soon as the park opens, Aquatica normally opens at 9 am. Ideally you'd arrive 20-30 minutes before opening, to be one of the first visitors to enter the water park.

Most water parks take a few hours to fill up as a lot of visitors prefer arriving when the sun is at its hottest.

This gives you the perfect chance to head straight to your favorite water rides and adventures while dealing with only minimal crowds.

Double check the Aquatica Orlando hours prior to planning your visit.

Best Season to Visit

Spring can be a great season to visit due to the cooler weather and lighter crowds.

Ideally visiting in May, right before any holidays such as spring break and memorial day weekend is a safe bet.

This will allow you to avoid having to deal with the spring breakers, while still taking advantage of all of the perks that the season provides.

Underrated Season to Visit

Fall is a very underrated season to visit as the summer weather has cooled off, and so has the humidity.

Although chances are that you'll be soaked in the water park, this weather gives a perfect opportunity to relax and dry off in the cooler weather.

The ideal time to visit during fall is in November prior to Thanksgiving.

The Halloween crowds will have ended, and the Thanksgiving crowd will not have started yet. It's the perfect 'down-time' to visit the park as it's traditionally one of the slower times of the year.
