Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, one of 2 Water Parks in Walt Disney World Resort, features attractions for the whole family—from fast waterslides to a children’s area with pint-sized raft rides. Catch 6-foot waves in the Surf Pool and snorkel Shark Reef—with real sharks!
According to Disney legend, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park was created in the wake of the storm-of-storms. During the meteorological disturbance, surfboards were hurled into palm trees and boats were tossed through thatched roofs of beach houses… and onto mountains.
A hapless shrimp boat, Miss Tilly, journeying from Safen Sound, Florida, found itself swept up by the twisting tides of the fierce typhoon. The storm’s force propelled the boat onto the peak of the volcanic mountain, Mount Mayday.
To this day Miss Tilly, the shrimp boat, still sits—impaled and precariously perched. Every half hour, the boat’s whistle blows and the volcano attempts to dislodge its burden by bursting, causing an enormous geyser of water to shoot skyward.
After the storm swept out to sea, the Disney legend concludes, Mount Mayday became the source for many waterslides. Surrounding the mountain, a 56-acre topsy-turvy tropical paradise was formed—full of waterways, rivers, rapids and slides: a sun-drenched Water Park.
Renting a locker for your personal belongings is highly recommended, especially if you plan on experiencing the big thrill attractions—since it may be difficult to keep track of your hats, glasses, jewelry and things while plunging down high-speed and steep drops.
It is also advisable to wear water shoes or flip-flops while visiting Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, as you may choose to climb stairs to access certain attractions. Plus, the ground can get hot and so will your feet!
Experience an oasis within an oasis. A Beachcomber Shack is a private retreat on the sand that has a wooden roof, chairs and chaises. Enjoy a stocked cooler with ice and bottled water, all-day drink mugs, towel service for 6 and your own private locker. Each patio comes with a personal attendant and waiter service to make sure your every need is met. For reservations and pricing information, please call (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529.
