Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon

Beyond the theme parks, Disney is the home of the world’s largest wave pool. This pool is located at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. As Disney legend has it, a fierce hurricane roared across the sea, hurling surfboards into trees, blowing small boats through roofs and the shrimp boat Miss Tilly, was found on the top of the great volcanic mountain Mt Mayday. Left in the typhoon’s wake was a thrilling water park filled with waterslides, surf pools, relaxing creeks and lots of sunshine.

Attractions:

Crush ‘N’ Gusher – Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool – Castaway Creek – Gang Plank Falls

Humunga Kowabunga – Keelhaul Falls – Ketchakiddee Creek

Mayday Falls – Shark Reef – Storm Slides

When arriving at the park I would suggest arriving early. Arriving at park opening will allow you to claim a beach chair & get a shady spot near the wave pool. You will want to pick your spot before swimming because once they are gone; they don’t usually become available again until late in the day. During the summer the park is known for closing early due to capacity and doesn’t allow more guests in until 2:00 pm.

Towels and lockers are available for you to rent near the park entrance. No buckles or metal are allowed on bathing suits and one piece bathing suits are recommended. Coolers are allowed but no glass containers or alcoholic beverages. I would also recommend water shoes or flip flops. The concrete can get extremely hot. There will be a lot of walking and stair climbing to get to all of the attractions.

Counter service options are available for lunch with plenty of snacks options as well. Disney also offers a refillable mug for sale (not your refillable mug from the resorts) that you can fill throughout the day. Picnic tables and covered areas are available for you to enjoy you items.

Our favorite ride is Crush-n-Gusher. This water coaster propels you through drops and turns while riding a two or three man raft. There are three coasters you can ride, “Banana Blaster” “Coconut Crusher” or “Pineapple Plunger”.

After several rides on the coaster we head over to Castaway Creek for a relaxing ride on an inner tube. While floating around the creek or flying down the Crush-n-Gusher coaster photopass photographers will be there to take your picture, so always be smiling.

Bring along your autograph books and camera because you never know which characters you may run into in the park.
