Re:Orlando's waterparks ( Wet-n-Wild, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, etc.)

Date Posted:07/05/2013 03:41:23Copy HTML

 Sorry for not posting sooner.  My computer has been down for about 3 wks.

I was at Blizzard Beach three times last week. 

On 6/22, a very crowded Saturday, I saw just a couple of thongs.  Many, many rios were spotted. 

On 6/25, less crowded Tuesday, I spotted more thongs, many 5 or 6.  But, as with Saturday, there were very many 1/4 coverage (rio type) bikinis.

Then on Friday 6/28.  Oh boy, Friday was a jackpot!!  Remember the Swiss Bikini Team from those beer commercials?  Well, the Argentinian Bikini Team must have been visiting.  I saw them coming in and getting into a group put by the Lottawatta Loge.  All were wearing lime green shirts and shorts.  Argentina was proudly displayed on the backs of each shirt.  I made a mental note to keep a lookout for them as I walked by heading to the shelter we managed to snag when the park first opened.  Well, we were back at the shelter and we heard a very loud cheer being done by a group of girls.  We stood up in time to see them finish their cheer and have a group picture taken righ in the center of the wave pool, near the front.  There must have been 100 - 150 girls in the group.  When the picture was taken, they all turned and ran into the pool.  Over half worn thongs, and  the rest wore very small rio bikinis!!  They were everywhere after that.  Every ride I went to had many of them in the que waiting to ride the rides/slides. 

One note I should make, the Argentinian girls weren't the only ones wearing thongs.  I saw 7 - 8 other girls wearing them that were with their friends or families.  One girl I could see from the pool was on her tummy with her top unfastened wearing a tiny thong.  From wear I was standing in the pool, she looked nude!  She was right in the middle of the pool area too.  She could not be missed by anyone going to or from the pool.    Later, I saw her right beside me in the pool with her mom, dad, and sister.  She was the only one wearing a thong and seemed comfortable doing it.  Neither her mom nor her sister wore one.  In fact, their suits were rather conservative compared to her's. No one seemed to even take notice of her. 

From what I saw on the three days I visited the water parks, Disney seems OK with 1/4 coverage rios or smaller.  I'd say you could wear a 1/8 coverage bikini every day and Disney wouldn't say anything.  Thongs, I don't know.  I saw at least a few each day I was there.  The girls, or ladies, wearing them had them on all day and it didn't seem like anyone paid any attention to them at all.  Some of the rios could be classified as a thong (I'm calling a thong a t-back or a g-string) but most had a small triangle swath of material that came from the waste band and disappeared into their butt cheeks.  That is what I'm calling a 1/4 to 1/8 coverage rio.  Again, there very many of them.  Even on Saturday my first day there.

I think Disney is being a bit liberal in their interpretation of what a thong is.  I didn't see any g-strings.  That might have been pushing it but I saw a lot of very small bikinis that could be considered thongs.  Again, no one that I saw complained or had to change into somoething with more coverage.

Living close to Disney, I go to Typhoon Lagoon quite often.  The first time I went, I wore a mid cut (just to be on the safe side).  The next time I went a little less and wore a regular speedo and didn't have any weird looks.  Most of the time now, I'll wear a string bikini or a rio suit.  I've only had one comment wearing a rio by woman who was there in shorts and a tshirt.  I've never tried a thong there, but am willing to do so.

Thongman:  thanks for the detailed review. Looks like they will let the tour groups wear their thongs after all!

Eimeo:  Here's a new review of Blizzard Beach I found on Trip Advisor that some parent posted just yesterday. This time I checked their actual visit date (June 2013) to make sure it wasn't a year-old review like last time LOL. So it seems that thong enforcement is still lax (at least in summer) which is encouraging.

"My one issue this trip was that some mom's were wearing thongs. Is there no dress code? I was in the toddler section of the park, and this woman walked by with her butt hanging out and my 3 yr old pointed at her and said butt. Not quite the family atmosphere Disney is known for. No lifeguard came over and told her to cover up. I think that would be mandatory for their staff. It was very disappointing"

 I am trying to figure this out Lindros ? This is just my opinion but you go to a public park , beach or  in this case an amusement park and your three year old points out butt on some gal wearing a thong swimsuit and your having an issue with this  , yet you act like you promote thongs as swimwear , what gives ? So I guess the public beach where  you go to thong doesnt allow children ? So do you have issues on all family beaches that allow thong swimwear ?  I give Disney credit as far as letting people have fun , and there are all walks of life some prefer shorts and some prefer thongs , I applaud Disney for letting swimwear there that you would wear at other beaches and not being tape measure police .

Webie:  That wasn't my review nor my opinion nor my child making that comment! That was a review posted by some woman on Trip Advisor who visited Blizzard Beach last month. I posted HER review of the park here on this forum only to show that Disney doesn't seem to be enforcing their "ban" on thong swimwear, at least on women, which is encouraging! If you've been reading through the history of this thread you would know that I'm the complete opposite of "swimsuit tape measure police". That said, I edited my previous post to make it more clear that the Trip Advisor review I posted was not mine.

Today (Monday) I spent time at both Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Each park is open until 8pm this year, unlike last year when they closed at either 5 or 6pm.

At Blizzard Beach there were several small South American tour groups. Their swimsuits spanned the gamut from rios to Brazilian cuts to traditional bottoms to thongs. Last year there seemed to be a higher percentage of the latter, but today there was still a large number (dozens) of girls wearing suits that exposed 50-100% of the butt crack. Really, they were everywhere I looked.

Also, their thong code is definitely NOT being enforced (at least on women). Case in point was late in the afternoon a woman about 35 was wearing a bona-fide t-back thong suit with a 1" waist-band and was playing with her daughter for over an hour at the edge of the wave pool in plain sight of the lifeguards. I was watching in the wave pool to see if they were going to ask her to cover. At one point I saw one of the lifeguards noticed the woman and pointed it out to another lifeguard that was standing nearby. They both then looked over at the woman and began to chuckle (both lifeguards were female) but never asked her to cover.

At Typhoon Lagoon unfortunately there were no South American tour groups today. I guess Mondays aren't the best days for that. However, there were still plenty patrons wearing rio/thong suits that exposed a majority of the butt. There was also a woman close to where I was sitting who was sunbathing topless (but with her chest down to the lounger) while reading a book. She actually took her whole top off rather than just unhook the back. The thing is when she went through the process of taking her top off and putting it back on she did absolutely nothing to cover her breasts, so a number of people got to see her goodies.

As for me, I just wore a speedo not wanting to have any more run-ins with the park manager.

These reports just tell me one thing:  if one person shows up at a disney waterpark in a thong, or perhaps even one of those ill-defined intermediate styles, the staff will take vigorous enforcement action against them.  If 100 people show up in thongs, they will do nothing and say nothing unless this number is exceeded by the number of active complainers.  For example, if some strict religious group is present in large numbers, these will tend to be active comlainers.  It ultimately comes down to the number of active complainers (who will boycott, leave, not return, speak ill of the park, etc. if thongs are allowed) vs. the number of those who prefer thongs.

I was with my family in Orlando the first week of June on sunday we had a late flight and we decided to spend the day at Typhoon Lagoon and to my surprise counted 5 thongs, and they were not only at the wave pool, they also were walking all the park without cover so I was surprised to read negative comments at the board because was so openly that I snapped a photo. Also saw countless rios on the back. The guys all even me were very conservative, I had a speedo under my short but was so conservative that I swam in my dorks.

 I was at Typhoon Lagoon this weekend and the tour groups from Brazil where there in great numbers.  Tons of really tiny almost-thong bottoms and also saw a few dozen actual thongs.   Only a few guys in speedos, the goofy board shorts seemed even longer than usual.

I've been to Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon a couple times each the last two weeks, and also had a friend who went to both waterparks a handful of times on different days as well the last part of this month and who was kind enough to provide me with daily reports.

Overall women didn't seem to have any issue wearing thongs at the waterparks in terms of being told to cover. That said, the last couple weeks have been kind of a disappointment. The South American tour groups didn't seem to arrive in the numbers that they have in the past year, and when they did most of them would wear traditional suits, cover shorts or rio's. Only a few of the girls would wear thongs. So on any day instead of seeing dozens of girls all over the park in a thong there probably were only a handful of girls or women on average wearing them on a given day. So, compared to last year, it would appear that Disney is telling these tour groups in advance not to wear thongs, but once in the park don't really care about the handful that do wear one.

I have thought about this comment for a few weeks and you know what bothers me?  This is exactly the same place gays were 20 years ago, and African Americans were 60 years ago.  Neither of these groups changed public opinion by "accepting the fact".  Now its certainly true that the vast majority of both groups did not want to "make things hard on yourself", but public opinion changed precisely because there were a dedicated few that were "just not smart" and were willing to put their money (and occasionally their life) where their mouth was.  This is not to criticise anyone who wants to simply "suck it up" and not "make things hard on yourself", but I think we need to applaud those who are actively fighting the system, because in the long run we all will benefit.

 We went to Blizzard Beach this past weekend.  I saw lots of 1/2 to 1/4 coverage bikinis.  More 1/2 coverage than I was expecting.  It was a pleasant surprise.  I saw a few thongs too.  No skimpy g-strings.  I noticed a few ladies wearing thongs and t-shirts.  It was obvious they were wearing thongs, especially when their shirts were wet.  One pregnant lady wore a thong too!  She looked great.  But, she wore sort of a sheer top over her thong bikini.  I don't know if they were told to cover up or they thought maybe it was too cold to go without a shirt.  It was 80-81 but felt nice to me so I don't know. 

One thonged lady walked around like she owned the place.  Her bikini was sort of a waste band, maybe 1", with a small strip or a string in the back.  I couldn't tell.  She looked great and no one paid any attention to her.

The next day, I was at our hotel pool.  I struck up a conversation witht eh life guard.  He said that he used to work the waterparks.  When I asked him about wearing thongs, he said that years ago, they almost never said anything to anyone wearing them.  It took many many complaints before they would.  Then, a few years later, he said they would say something sooner, but it still took a lot of complaints before they would say anything.  Then, it got to be just a few complaints before they said something.  Now, he said, they put it in the park map.  However, he didn't like telling people to put something on, he always told his supervisor and they handled it. 

It seems there once was a culture of acceptance for thongs at the waterparks, but over time, it has gone away.  Will it ever comeback and be accepted like it once was.  He did add that if a tour bus came in with lots of South Americans, then they would be forced to allow them because there were to many to do anything about it.  So, they let them be.  He said it was their culture so how could they tell them no?  I agreed!

You must have been there on Saturday (Sunday was in the high 60s, way too cold for a waterpark lol). I didn't see any thongs at BB that day, and definitely didn't see as many small coverage suits as you did, I think my husband mentioned he saw 2 girls with tiny bikinis, but that was pretty much it. We went from opening until about 3pm, what time were you there?

 Eimeo, sorry I missed you.  It would have been nice to actually see you in person for a change and not in a picture!  :)  We were there on Sunday.  We got there at the opening and left around 3 like you did.  The temp was fine.  I remember Monday being cooler, maybe high 60s, but Sunday was good and warm.  I thought it was around 80, but I could be wrong.  It wasn't too crowded.  We were surprised that it was so uncrowded, especially for a weekend.

I did see lots, and I mean lots of smallish bikinis on Sunday.  Knowing about the ban on thongs I was surprised to see so many small suits.  They weren't thongs, but close to it.  The one lady wearing the waste-band thong walked right past a lifeguard and sat on the slide at the kiddie slide right next to my 4 yr old son.  He, the LF, looked right at her but didn't say a thing to her.  This was in the main area of the park, not Tikes Peak.  It's near the floating icebergs that the kiddos walk across.  I think they go by the thought that if no one complains, then they leave the thonger alone.

Stan, I'm going to side with DavyJ on this one. You make a good point that thongs are a choice whereas skin color is not. However, I don't think DavyJ was trying to equivocate them in that sense or put them on the same level of importance. Rather, the point he makes, and I think it's a valid one, is that the only way to incorporate change in the attitudes of others is to bring the issue to the forefront whatever issue that may be, which is precisely how the black civil rights and gay movements were started. If everyone who wants to wear thongs instead sucks it up and wears dork shorts then thongs on guys will never be accepted. Only by bucking the system can people incorporate change and I think DavyJ is spot on that we need to applaud those who try.

Sorry....not buying it.  With blacks and gays, the masses were substantial enough that coordinated, organized resistance had enough critical mass to be significant and have an impact.  If everyone who wanted to wear thongs, wore thongs....you would still have a fringe element of outcasts who would be ostracized by the masses.  I will use myself as an example.   At the NJ shore in the summer time, I used to wear a thong.  I stopped because of the harassment from the "Jersey Shore" crowd, who made my beach time there less than pleasurable.  So now I acquiesce and wear bigger swimwear (not dork shorts...but not a thong).   If I were to go back to wearing a thong, I would be back to where I started because very very very few people at the Jersey shore are probably not wearing the preferred swimwear of their choice.

Lets just face it.  As male thong wearers....we are not in the mainstream.  We live outside the norm (which is fine)but we are not going to gain any type of support by organized, coordinated "resistance" when it comes to public venue such as Orlando's water parks.  Even women are in the vast minority on this issue.  As guys...we stand no chance.

 I agree with being a little more conservative at water parks, especially at Disney, however...  In the past, I would typically wear square cut, or 2" speedo to Typhoon Lagoon or Wet N Wild.  This past summer, I was there in early August, wearing a speedo, and saw three guys in thongs, and several guys in Brazilian back suits, and several ladies in thongs.  Whenever I go to the beach, pool, water park etc. I always carry a few different suits with me, again, depending on the crowd and what I can get away with.  This particular day, I decided to change into my white Jovana Brazilian string bikini which has a rio back that can slide to make a thong back.  I kept the rio back for a while, then pinched the sides together to make the thong just before going into the lazy river.  When I got out, I walked around the water park and did not have any negative comments.  I actually had several people, guys and ladies compliment me on my suit.

  I don't particularly care to change people's attitudes, I do what I do because I want to AND feel comfortable doing so and if in the process I can change some people's attitudes about thongs, particularly on men, well that's all bonus; if other people want to carry forth the thong banner into other areas beyond the beach, here's more power to you. I too wouldn't wear a thong to a pool and much less a water park because I "think" that thongs are something people do go there not expecting to see, on women and much less so on men, particularly in the US where too many people are so easily offended. The beach on the other hand has several advantages that makes me feel more comfortable wearing thongs: it is free and public place, there is a lot of room so people can find a spot more to their liking and away from "undesirables", there are many beaches some more conservatives/family oriented than others, it is a place where it is expected people go there among other things so sunbathe and therefore wear minimal suits. At water parks I choose to wear somewhat cheeky briefs, nothing to revealing but nothing to outrageous. I am oftentimes considered European or South American.

I was in Miami Florida this fall for work. The days I was able to  make it to the beach I wore my skinz stuffit g-strings unlined black, and lined blue with tropical flowers anytime I went. I made up my mind I was going to do it any not chicken out and did just fine. One weekend I went up to Orlando and went to Typhoon lagoon. I have been to the Disney parks before and wore either a 3 in. speedo or 1 in. speedo solar. This time with my new confidence I wore my skinz classic rio in black. There were some square cuts and a few speedo styles on some men, but few and far between. I saw no females in thongs but a few in very skimpy rio suits showing far more rear than I was. Of all the men I saw, mine was the skimpiest suit. It took some confidence, i laid in the sun a bit first, went in the wave pool, then got up the courage to go on the slides. Everything was fine, I got no more attention than I would have if I was wearing a speedo style suit. I'm sure that wouldn't have been the case in a thong, but I don't think I will ever give that a try at a waterpark. At least I know they have no problems with a rio suit and will definitely wear a rio the next time I am at a waterpark in Florida.

I thought I would own up, and admit that even though it wasn't a thong- about 6 years ago, I did an entire day at Typhoon Lagoon in a bright red and blue bikini with a 2 inch inseam.  I had a fantastic time, and actually preferred that I didn't cause a massive scene, only eliciting a few smiles and long stares.  In big crowds like that, with all the up and down and around everywhere, I find that a bikini is skimpy enough to satisfy me but not draw too so much attention that I cant enjoy myself.

Well, I have been away most of the winter and missed this thread until now.  I certainly didn't mean to criticize anyone who goes out of his or her way to NOT shake up the system.  Of course everyone has that right and many times I also will try to avoid controversy.  But I think we should all be applauding those who do make the effort to effect some change, either by writing letters, complaining about overly restrictive dress codes, pushing the envelope themselves, or whatever they might choose to do.  And Stanpuppy, I am not so sure that thongers don't outnumber gays, especially if you include all those who would be thongers were it not for the harassment many of us have experienced.  (We probably have as many "in the closet" as we have out and about enjoying themselves.)  Certainly you are right, that African Americans outnumber both groups by a substantial amount, but I don't think the specific percentage is all the relevant.

Although I didn't hit a water park while there, I spent a week at a Disney resort this past week.  I wasn't even going to try to wear a minimal suit, but thought I'd be fine in my modest, Nike squarecut I use for lap swimming.  I still got some looks and whispers.  It almost made me wish I'd had my Skinz Spartan G-string underneath since I was being talked about anyway.  LOL

have been to both Disney parks and Aquatica, so know what to expect there, but upcoming visit  include stays at The Palms (south beach pool - adults only) and trips to Adventure Island. Anyone have experience or advice as it relates to these two sunning oppurtunities.

my standard suit in Orlando is Skinz rio, of various colors. The larger the crowd the more colorful. If in doubt (small crowd or cloudy day), black is alway good.

Last summer I wore a Dore low cut bikini (not a thong) at Discovery Cove. Didn't notice anybody looking or commenting at all, and it showed a lot in front, Brazil in back. With all the board shorts, I definitely felt out of place, but didn't let it bother me. It was hot as blazes that day, and I kept more comfortable then they could for sure!  I dare say people are getting more conservative each year.

 I'm currently staying at Walt Disney World resorts. I have been here for 4 days. Have been to both Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon twice. Each day I've seen at least six women in thongs. I personally have worn a 4 in back suit and have had no comments or problems at all from the staff. A lot of looks from the clientele. But no comments or adverse problems.

Thanks for the update, first one in over four months from Disney.

FYI, today is the last day of the season for Typhoon Lagoon as it'll be closed from 10/26/2014 to 1/3/2015. Blizzard Beach then closes 1/4/2015 to 3/14/2015.

I might be at Blizzard tomorrow, but won't be wearing a thong.

You'll notice me tomorrow if you're there stop by and say hello. I'll be on the far left side. Not all the way to the end but Where here is a single palm tree.

 yes. Closing typhoon lagoon on a sunday was really stupid. However all of people went to blizzard beach and the thong count was at 12. I'll. Be at the fort starting later this week for 6 weeks. Hope to see you.

Found this link on the Disney Boards from somone who was at Blizzard Beach during Thanksgiving week and was shocked by the number of thongs:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3356012&highlight=thong

However, I was at Blizzard Beach today (Sunday) and unfortunately didn't see any thongs. Crowd was a conservative one, I didn't even feel comfortable wearing a speedo.

Shocked, just shocked, that an international destination like Orlando does not look as conservative as Tennessee or North Dakota. My, My, what is the modern world coming too?

As a general rule major Florida destinations get people from the North of America during the winter and from Europe during the summer. 
In the summer the North of the USA is hot too, so they don't need to come south for the sun. 
On the other hand the Europeans often don't have as warmer summer and do have long paid summer vacations,
giving them both the time and money for international travel with the family.

 I was at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort last week.  I know it's not a waterpark.  We went to the resort pool three or four times that week.  During one of the trips, there was a lady wearing a nice small thong bikini.  She was walking around or standing by the pool most of the time she was there.  She was bending over, standing beside the lifeguards, squatting down to talk to her kids that where in the pool, just enjoying the pool like everyone else.  All the while, not one lifeguard gave her a second look.  No one talked to her about her suit.  She walked around like she owned the place.  Her daughter even wore a small Brazilian suit.  I'd say it was at most 3" wide in the back.  She was probably 12 or 14 years old. 

While browsing through the gift shop, I picked up a small bikini bottom.  The tag read "Brazilian String".  It's promising to think that Disney might be relaxing their policies when you see things like that.

The Disney resorts have a more liberal policy regarding swimwear than the water parks, according to the Blizzard Beach manager when I spoke with him a year ago.

The current water park dress policy can be read at: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/faq/parks/recommended-dress/

It spends more time talking about not wearing Disney character costumes than dressing too sexily.

### begin quote ###

Q. What is the best way to dress for a visit to the parks? What clothing isn't permissible? A. We suggest you dress comfortably, wear good walking shoes and check the local weather report before you leave for the parks at Walt Disney World Resort. Proper attire, including shoes and shirts, must be worn at all times. The parks are a casual, family-oriented environment. Ensuring that the parks are family friendly is an important part of the Disney experience. In that spirit, we ask you to use your discretion and common sense. Attire that is not appropriate for the parks—and which may result in refusal of admittance—includes but is not limited to: Adult costumes or clothing that can be viewed as representative of an actual Disney characterMasksClothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics Excessively torn clothingClothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environmentObjectionable tattoos Adults can visit the parks if their hair (or makeup, if applicable) resembles a Disney Princess or character, provided that they are not also wearing a costume or clothed to look like the character. ### end quote ###

So, i guess that means i can wear a red wig and Ariel makeup, but not a shell bra!

Shavedboy,

The park maps for both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach say that thongs are not permitted.  If you look at the right side of both park maps you will find where they say it. 

I was just surprised to see that not one of the lifeguards gave the lady a second glance.  Especially after the water parks had banded them.  Yes, I know the WPs can be a little inconsistent in their enforcement of the no thong rule.  Just last summer I saw two or three ladies wearing tiny thongs at BB.  There were countless ladies in very cheeky or Brazilian bikinis.  The cheeky seems to be developing into the norm so I can see why they don't care about those.

FWIW, the dress code quoted above is the generic theme park dress code (i.e., animal kingdom, universal studios, etc...) not the water park specific code. The water park specific rules are printed on the brochures available in the park, and they specifically prohibit thongs. They are also posted on the waterpark FAQ web page:
http://www.disneydining.com/top-10-questions-answers-walt-disney-world-water-parks/

Interestingly, came across this recent debate over thongs at Disney waterparks:
