Florida Guide > Disney General
Typhoon Lagoon is part of the Walt Disney World theme parks and can be included on your 5, 7 or 10 day theme park tickets. We visited Typhoon lagoon back In 2007 and must say we were very impressed with the general overall feel of the place. Normally waterparks can be a bit of a let down after visiting the main theme parks, but this is not the case with the Disney Waterparks.
Typhoon lagoon has many rides and activities to do, Ketchakiddee Creek, Crush ‘n’ Gusher, Surf Pool, Castaway Creek and Humunga Kowabunga to name a few. Feel like you don’t want go on anything, don’t worry there are many sun loungers scattered about where you can just sit back and relax and watch the world go by. Typhoon Lagoon really does have something for everyone.
For the children you can hire life jackets and towels (free of charge) and there are also lockers that you can put all your belongings in by the entrance.
One of my most favourite rides has to be the Crush ‘n’ Gusher. This ride is a water coaster that goes up to 20mph and reaches heights of 35- 40ft. The water coaster is designed to give you a unique experience, propelling you through hairpin bends, uphill climbs and sudden drops. Overall the track is around430 feet long.
Another favourite ride is the Humunga Kowabunga enclosed water slide. This slide runs down the side of Mount Mayday and has a vertical 65ft drop 9 (or 5 stories) in the total dark. Only at the end when it is light do you realise the surprise at the bottom!
If you just want to relax why not take a trip on the Surf pool where you can run along the 610ft track in huge rubber rings and view the whole park. This is a great way to unwind after the hustle and bustle of the main theme parks.
One of the main attractions of the park was the friendly nature of all the staff. It always surprises me how polite and courteous the staffs at Disney Parks are. They always seem to go that extra mile when it comes to customer service.
Overall I would say a trip to Typhoon Lagoon should definitely be on your schedule when visiting Orlando. It is a nice place to relax and unwind, but still has enough to keep the whole family entertained should they get bored of sunbathing.
