There are two water parks in Disney World: Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon.
Typhoon Lagoon opened in June of 1989 when a typhoon wreaked havoc on formerly perfect tropical paradise. When you visit Typhoon Lagoon, you will find a shrimp boat, Miss Tilly, impaled upon Mount Mayday in the center of the park. It contains a geyser that erupts with 50 feet of water every half hour.
Typhoon Lagoon holds 2 world records. It is the most visited water park in the world and it also contains the world’s biggest outdoor wave pool.
If slides are your thing, Typhoon Lagoon has a few to choose from:
- Humunga Kowabunga – 3 different 5 story flume slides that are side by side so you can race your family to the bottom.
- Storm Slides – 3 wet and wild body slides through caves, waterfalls and geyers
- Crush ‘n’ Gusher – 3 different roller coaster like waterslides where up to 3 guests can rush down the slide together on an inner-tube.
- Mayday Falls – Fly down Mount Mayday on the longest waterslide in the park.
- Keelhaul Falls – If you aren’t sure if you will like a water slide, be sure to try this one first. It is the mildest in the park.
- Miss Adventure Falls – A family friendly raft ride, try this long fun adventure.
If you want to enjoy some quality family fun, you can all head down Gang Plank Falls in a raft together. It is a 300 foot long waterslide containing many surprises and special effects.
When you feel like relaxing and soaking up some rays, you can enjoy Castaway Creek or relaxing on the Sandy White Beach.
Little ones can enjoy Ketchakiddie Creek that features activity areas, water slides and a tot sized water play area.
Want to learn how to surf? You can book surf lessons either before or after the park closes.
And you can even swim with the sharks at Typhoon Lagoon.
In order to gain admission to Typhoon Lagoon, you will need the Water Park Fun and More Option added to your Disney World ticket. This option is an extra $55.58 per multi-day ticket. This gives you a set number of admissions into the 2 water parks, DisneyQuest, Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex or a round of golf at Oak Trail.
This option gives you an equal number of days of access on your ticket. So if you have a 7 day park ticket, you also have 7 days worth of admissions giving you a total of 14 days of fun!
If you only want to head to Blizzard Beach for one day, you can purchase a single day ticket at the gate or your resort hotel. Tickets are $52.19 for adults and $43.67 for children.
