Park Spotlight: Typhoon Lagoon


When you need to cool off, look no further than Disney’s Waterparks. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is one of Disney’s Waterparks that is sure to provide hours of entertainment for the whole family.

For the littlest ones (48 inches or shorter) there is Ketchakiddee Creek with smaller versions of water slides, animal shaped fountains, and caves with waterfalls. Castaway Creek is fun for all ages to enjoy a ride along a lazy river. Also available for the under 5 foot crowd are the Bay Slides. These are smaller waterslides that end in the edge of the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool. Be sure to look around the beach areas and you will see complimentary life jackets for your little ones to wear.

If you are looking for fun for the whole family make your way to Miss Adventure Falls or Gangplank Falls for a family raft ride in a 4 person inner tube. Keelhaul Falls and Mayday Falls are two other tube rides through the white water rapids near Gangplank Falls. These rides are for all ages and heights.

Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool (wave pool) is like no other! You hear a loud boom and then shortly after huge waves come towards you. Some can knock a grown man down so hang on tight and enjoy the ride, just be careful with the little ones. These are some big waves! You can also sign up for private surfing lessons before the park opens or after it closes.

For the 48 inches and taller crowd - Crush ‘n’ Gusher is a wild ride! You will board a two person tube and choose one of three fruit chutes and enjoy the waterslide with a coaster feel, including uphill climbs, sudden turns and drops. Just be sure to go up and try all the fruit slides and find your favorite!

Tubes not your thing? If you prefer body slides you will enjoy the Storm Slides and Humunga Kowabunga. The Storm Slides are three different slides, Jib Jammer, Stern Burner and the Rudder Buster where you lay back and enjoy the twists and turns of these slides before splashing in the pool below. Humunga Kowabunga is three side by side 214 foot slides at a 60 degree angle sure to make you scream, and want to go again!

Once you’ve played a few hours you will probably work up an appetite. There are plenty of quick dining and snack locations for you to grab a quick bite and then head back in the water for more fun.
