Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is one of two water parks at the enormous Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. Compared to the Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon presents a bit more variety in terms of things to do, with opportunities to get up close to different species of sea life, as well as a few more traditional slides and flumes.
The park is open daily with attractions opening at 10:00 and closing 17:00 sharp. Individual day tickets for Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon can be purchased for $58, or you can also get inside with Disney’s more expensive ‘park-hopper’ pass that allows access to all the other theme parks spread across the resort.

On the attractions front, Typhoon Lagoon has a good 10 or so water slides including the two-person rollercoaster raft-like ‘Crush ‘n’ Gusher’, ‘Humunga Kowabunga’ with five steep drops and ‘Storm’ and ‘Bay’ slides which are both a little slower and geared more towards the younger children. Elsewhere, there is a sizeable rapids course looping around the park.
Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon goes a bit further than just slides though. Surfers will love the ‘Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool’ which generate six-foot swells from powerful underwater turbines. Ticket holders can also jump in and swim with sharks, stingray and tropical fish at ‘Shark Reef’ – perhaps the park’s best rated attraction. The 363,000-gallon tank of saltwater holds an impressive array of marine species – all of which are safe to swim with. Snorkel sets are provided by the helpful instructors at Typhoon Lagoon, as a quick crash course is provided for beginners. Shark Reef is accessible at no extra cost but do note that children under 10 should be accompanied by an adult.
For those that forgot to pack lunch, or their swimming costume, the park also provides all the usual amenities such as refreshment stalls, restaurants, clothes and accessory shops and changing rooms.
