Escape to Typhoon Lagoon!

Disney legend says many years ago a furious typhoon hit a tiny resort, hurling surfboards into trees, blowing small boats through roofs and impaling the Miss Tilly, a shrimp boat originally from Safen Sound, FL, on the peak of the great volcanic mountain, Mount Mayday. The storm—plus an ensuing earthquake and volcanic eruption—left the village in ruins. Instead of bemoaning their bad luck, the townspeople turned their home into a world-class water park! Left in the typhoon’s wake are nine exciting waterslides and streams, roaring rapids, wonderful waterways and relaxing rivers—the perfect place for a day of escapism.


• Catch six-foot waves in the Surf Pool or snorkel at Shark Reef with real sharks!
• Little ones, under 48 inches tall, can go to Ketchakiddee Creek for fun water features and kidsized slides.
• Grab an inner tube and float around the park at Castaway Creek—a mild, relaxing ride.
• Thrilling big kids, teens and adults, Crush ‘n’ Gusher is a gravity-defying, multi-rider, coaster-like raft ride with gushing jets of water.
