One of the things people asked me to check out on the Disney Fantasy was the AquaDuck water slide, and I couldn’t wait to oblige. I’ve always loved water slides, but I was especially interested to see what this one was like and if my special needs kid would be able to enjoy it. After my experience I think my child would have a blast. Unlike many water slides, you can ride double, which is great because my child cannot sit independently. It’s got great movement, but it’s not too fast or deep, and the “landing” is easy, no dumping into a pool. One note, children must be 42 inches or taller to go on the AquaDuck, my child meets that criteria, but take that into consideration before you tell your kid about how much fun it will be. There’s nothing worse than building up expectations for something that’s out of reach. But don’t just take my word for it, see for yourself. Join me on my AquaDuck adventure – and try to ignore the uh, awkward camera angle, not real glamorous – whatever. I guess it’s the price I’m willing to pay for journalism – ha!
