Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon

We headed over to Typhoon Lagoon on Friday AND IT WAS PACKED! Very hard to find a seat and shade…forget about it!

We figured out next time we will plan to arrive about 2pm or 3 and stay until they close which is 8pm. (enough time for a waterpark I think) The lines were long some as long as an hour! It seemed that late afternoon people had enough and were getting up and leaving.

One of the most convenient features of this park presents itself as you walk in.  A huge billboard that discloses how many chairs are available in each section of the water park.

Transportation around the park? oh yeah! The lazy river…Choose a single, double or kiddie tube and use it like the railroad at Disney (stop at your desired location, rather than walk). The kids loved doing this! There can be a lot of people, but it seemed to be wider than most water parks. Absolutely LOVED the lazy river.

Now lets chat about the wave pool!

WHAT A WAVE POOL!!! I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS IN FOR! This is the ultimate rush!!! Parents, just be careful with the little ones that don’t swim, This wave pool is extreme!!! The 2.75 million (yes – million) gallon wave pool in this place is crazy.  From anywhere in the park you will hear what sounds like a huge crash of thunder, followed by the excited screams of a couple hundred people.  Waves up to 6 ft high are then belted out onto everyone brave enough to weather the storm.

Check out my video I apologize for the end I got a little scared 😀

The food here is nice but a bit pricey.  They do allow coolers so that is a positive as well.

One tip, purchase the cup that you can refill anytime. Totally worth it!

And what was Disney thinking in regards to lining their water areas. I understand they need it to be nonslip but after all the scraps and cuts you would think they would sand it down a bit so it’s not so sharp. It tears up your feet if you’re not wearing water shoes.

Of Course, I have to mention the themeing…..as always AMAZING!!!!

The rides include….

Crush N Gusher –  1,2 or 3 person tubes down a long slide.  Drops, speeds and turns. Since there are 3 courses to choose from it doesn’t back up as much as other rides. I’d say go on this one 1st when you get in the park.

Gang Plank Falls – a family coaster, but very short. For the amount of time we waited to get in this one, it was over in about 10 seconds. Not worth the wait.

Shark Reef – neat offering you can swim with fish and baby sharks for $20. We did not get a chance to do this but plan on it next time.

Overall we had a great time and will be back (Of Course!)
