Orlando Water Parks: Disney's Typhoon Lagoon

Welcome To Disney's Typhoon Lagoon

disneys-typhoon-lagoon-orlando-floridaWelcome... to our tropical surf adventure here at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon. This is Disney's second largest water park here in Orlando Florida and holds one of the 'biggest wave machines' around, which sends a six foot wave down the bay every '90 seconds' and alternates with a 30 minute wave bobbing cycle.

Along with water coasters, slides, shark reefs (Grandad's favourite), sandy beaches, pearl shops, surf training and relaxing hideaway areas for all the family, this is a fantastic way to charge those batteries between the theme parks.

To find where you are in the Lagoon while navigating through this page, we recommend this useful map.

Handy Link's & Road Directions:

You'll find these helpful, the first one keeps you updated through out the year with events going on in and around all Disney theme parks. The second helps you out with opening times/parade times for all Disney parks and Water parks, useful info if you want to leave the water parks and catch a parade in the afternoon.

Directions to Typhoon Lagoon

Cool Savings On Ticket purchases:

entrance-typhoon-lagoon-orlando-floridaRemember you can use your pre-paid Disney tickets best-of-orlandoto enter Typhoon Lagoon, but if this is not the case, tickets can be purchased at the entrance.

Car parking is generally not a problem at the water parks, however, an early start is always advisable during peak times, for that prime position down by the beach and waters edge. "The kids will love it"

Rides, Play & Sun areas inside the Lagoon:

typhoon-lagoon-orlando-floridaWhere would you like to start? This will all depend on the ages of your children but remember you need to find some good seats in or out of the sun, so for the sun worshippers any where around the 'surf pool' is ideal, as there are lots of sun beds available.

For the sun shaders...most places just away from the surf pool are available. We always try for the right side of the surf pool overlooking the lagoon.

Here's a great list of rides and attractions and height restictions available at Typhoon Lagoon. Browse at your leisure and after this we will tell you all about the dining at Typhoon Lagoon:

  • Crush 'N' Gusher - The new 'water coaster' ride at Typhoon Lagoon located in Hideaway Bay. Blast your way up stream in 2 man rafts propelled along by jet powered water. A Height restriction of 48 ins is required.

  • Humunga Kowabunga - Wicked enclosed ride with speeds up to 30 mph which shoot you through caves...Great Fun. A Height restriction of 48 ins is required.

  • Keel Haul Falls - Sit on your inner tube and enjoy the ride through caves and waterfalls.

  • Gangplank falls - Great family raft ride for up to 4 persons, hold on while you travel down 300 ft, through rock formations and great water special effects.

  • Mayday Falls - We would put this ride the same as the Keel Haul Rides for fun.

  • Ketchakiddee Creek - Brilliant fun for the young ones in this activity fun park slides, floats, waterfalls and much much more!

  • Surf Pool (Wave) - 6ft wave every 90 seconds alternating with 30 minutes of bobbing waves, make sure if you or the children have tender feet to wear beach shoes, as the floor of the pool can be rough in places. Also take care of young children by the shore as the wave energy can easily knock them over.

  • Castaway Creek - Mums, Dads and Grandparents favorite ride. Float away down stream without a care in the world traveling through caves, grottos, and cold waterfalls...Paradise!
