Typhoon Lagoon is a great family water park and considered the best option of the two choices at Walt Disney World® for younger kids. There are kid friendly water rides and splash areas but there are also some fun attractions we are highlighting below. The theme of the park is an epic typhoon hurled surfboards into palm trees and tossed boats like toys and “Mount Mayday” became a topsy-turvy oasis of water-filled adventure!
Miss Adventure Falls. This an all-new, family-raft attraction owned by Captain Mary Oceaneer, a sea-faring treasure hunter whose haul was caught in a rogue typhoon and scattered across this land years ago. You will board a four-person raft and ride an aquatic conveyer belt that will shoot you into action.
Typhoon Lagoon Surf pool – This is America’s Largest Wave Pool and is the centerpiece of Typhoon Lagoon. When you hear the big boom, look out! Every 30 minutes, six foot swells come out for about 10 minutes. You can surf here before the park opens and even take lessons on select days.
Crush’n’Gusher Slides–Choose from the Pineapple, Coconut, or Banana and ride down 400-foot-long tube slides. Your raft is propelled by powerful jets through uphill climbs, sudden dips, and hairpin turns through darkened and open sections.
Gangplank Falls- This is a 300-foot-long waterslide aboard a 4-person inner tube that will take you through rocky caverns, beneath drenching waterfalls and under rustic wooden bridges all while rotating and banking from side to side.
Mayday Falls-The tube ride begins in the shadow of Miss Tilly, the shipwrecked shrimp boat atop Mount Mayday and the icon of Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park. This is considered the most intense single-rider tube slide.
Humunga Kowabunga Three side-by-side enclosed body slides will drop you 214 feet downhill at a 60-degree angle in the dark and drop you five stories in seconds.
Keelhaul Falls- This is a slow single rider tube slide. Feel the force of whitewater rapids as you rush along a course lined with boulders and palm trees. This is the least intense raft ride and a lifeguard catches the tube at the bottom.
Storm Slides- Shoot 3 stories downhill on one of 3 body slides: Jib Jammer, Stern Burner or Rudder Buster. You will careen, twist and turn your way, through grottoes and end with a waterfall splash
Castaway Creek-Grab an inner tube at any of the 5 landings along the 2,000-foot-long and float along the river that winds its way around all of Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon under waterfalls and misters.
RELAX! – Typhoon Lagoon has many white sand beaches scattered around the park. There are covered areas where toddlers can play with their sand toys, and reclining lounge chairs by the wave pool for you to relax and catch some rays. You can bring sand toys into the park too!
