Typhoon Lagoon Page 2 >>
This 56-acre water park would most likely be the
choice of fish if they could choose an amusement park,
as Typhoon Lagoon features some of the wettest and
wildest attractions at Walt Disney World. Before
Blizzard Beach opened, Typhoon Lagoon was the largest
water park on property. It is still immensely popular,
with its twisting tides, roaring rapids, wonderful
waterways and relaxing rivers. Typhoon Lagoon also
features a special area where guests can snorkel among
live sharks and other tropical fish. Excluding the
snorkeling area, all water is heated to a toasty 75-80
Typhoon Lagoon opened on June 1, 1989. As the
park's legend states, a typhoon wreaked havoc on a
tropical paradise, flinging items all over the area and
marooning the shrimp boat “Miss Tilly” atop Mount
Mayday. Every half-hour, a 50-foot geyser of water
erupts from the boat. Typhoon Lagoon's mascot is the
Lagoona Gator, a relative of Blizzard Beach's Ice Gator.
The park boasts the world's largest outdoor wave
pool. There aren't any restrictions in the park on where
to have a picnic, though there are two designated areas.
Coolers are allowed into the park as long as they do not
contain glass or alcohol.
