Located in the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando Florida, Disney Typhoon Lagoon will take you back in time to the Surfer Beach days on the Florida coast when surfing was at its prime and everyone joined around at various beach locations to have a summer fun bash. If you are looking for one of the most unique and lush Water Park environments in the Country, this is the one you want to visit. If you are living in the Florida area, you can take advantage of continued access by getting a year round pass and also get a discount just for living in the Sunshine State. If you are just visiting for a wonderful Family Vacation and you are interested in going to one of the main Water Parks in Orlando then Typhoon Lagoon one you will definitely want to check out.
The entrance to the park takes you back in time with ticket booths that look like beach huts with thatch roofs and some that even look like the wheelhouse of am old tugboat with the old curved smoke stacks towering above. Disney has created a tropical paradise to enjoy with paths leading through the park covered with magnificent trees and foliage that shade and bring beauty through the entire location. Keeping with true Disney fashion, everything is very colorful and laid out in a way that is very appealing to adults and kids alike.
In the distance, you can hear the crashing of the waves from the tremendous Wave Pool at Disney Typhoon Lagoon that acts as the central hub to Typhoon Lagoon. This Wave Pool creates continuous fun for all of those who enter but is also designed in a way that is very different from any other pools of this nature. Most Wave Pools have concrete walls that create the lining of the lining and also the tank that creates the instant dumping of gallons of water that create the wave in the pool. Although the mechanism to create the wave works the same, the appearance is very different. It is designed to make you feel as if you are in a Tropical Lagoon with rock walls and waterfalls flowing down the banks. This alone makes for an experience that you do not get at any of the other water parks.
If you are looking for some additional excitement during your trip, you will want to find your way around to the different Water Slides at Typhoon Lagoon. There are a total of 16 major slides to fit all of the different ages, heights and extreme thrill levels of each rider. Whether you are interested in the most thrilling speed slide that drops over 5 stories and hits speeds of about 30 mph or you just like to slip and slide more gently to the bottom in a tube, you will find just what you are looking for at this wonderful Disney Water Park. Don’t forget to take a ride on the one of the exhilarating water coasters at the Crush ‘n’ Gusher area of the park.
Have you ever wanted to go snorkeling but you were a little nervous to get out in the big ocean and try it for the first time? If this is true, you are at the perfect place and you probably didn’t even know it. Enter a place where you can swim in a more controlled environment at Shark Reef. When you first enter the area, you will not be able to miss the large capsized vessel sitting in the middle of the attraction. For those who do not want to get in the water with the fish, Stingrays and Sharks, you can safely look on through portholes below. If snorkeling is what you are looking for, put on your snorkel gear and jump right in. What a great opportunity to enjoy the fish around you without the worry of any danger you might find in the ocean.
How many times have you been to the beach and have seen people out in the water, riding their surfboard and having a blast in the waves thinking, “I sure would like to try that but I wouldn’t even know where to start”. If this is you, head on over the the Surf Lessons section of the park. There are additional fees for going to “Surf School” but it will be well worth it. You will have an experience that you do not find many other places where you will have the bay to yourself, along with maybe a few others who want the same experience and you will have a professional instructor walk you through the steps of getting up for the first time on a surfboard. Sounds fun right?
I don’t think you could have a water park without having a Lazy River and that is precisely what you will get when you enter Castaway Creek Lazy River. You have probably been on the slow rivers before but this one might be a little different from what you are used to. This Lazy River is about 2,000 feet long, that is over 0.3 miles in length. Grab a tube and jump in with some friends and family to enjoy the park at a slower pace. No matter what your speed, most everyone enjoys the simple floating and tranquility that only a Lazy River can provide.
