Did you know that there is a Disney Cruise Ship Water Slide? It is called the AquaDuck. It was one of the many things we were hoping to experience on our Disney Crusie. The AquaDuck is very popular which means long queues. Ethan gets very distressed when it comes to queuing but we had a plan of action that we hoped would help.
This cruise ship water slide consists of a water tube that winds around the top deck of the ship. It is a water coaster, water pushes you up and down the tube. You ride the AquaDuck on a two-person raft and it apparently falls four decks during the ride.
We decided that we would try to take Ethan on the AquaDuck for the first time either in the evenings or on our Castaway Cay day. Jet-lag hit Ethan pretty badly meaning the evenings weren’t really an option for him. So we took advantage of a quieter ship on the afternoon of the Castaway Cay day.
We were both able to ride with Ethan on the AquaDuck on the Castaway Cay afternoon. Everyone loved it but Little E was too small to go on. One of us stayed with Little E in Nemo’s Reef, whilst the other took Ethan onto the AquaDuck. The AquaDuck is very fast, you get very wet and the water is very cold. But it is so much fun!
The queue does get very long on sea days. Ethan knew what he was queuing for on our sea day so he was happy to wait for his turn to go on the AquaDuck.
I’m so glad we got the chance to ride on the AquaDuck. It was worth waiting for. I really hope that we will be able to get the chance to ride the AquaDuck with Little E in the future.
