While Blizzard Beach and its famous Summit Plummet waterslide reopened earlier this year, Typhoon Lagoon has remained abandoned, although several permits for the Park have been filed, most recently for the Ketchakiddie Creek toddler play area.
Now, Disney is seemingly continuing to prepare for the possible reopening of the popular water park with yet another construction permit.
This permit is to “Provide labor & materials for replacement of play surface”, so it is likely related to the seemingly ongoing Ketchakiddie Creek refurbishment.
Walt Disney World Resort officials have not confirmed how extensive the renovation of Ketchakiddie Creek will be, but it seems that little ones and their families will be able to enjoy at least some upgraded features whenever Typhoon Lagoon does reopen to Guests.
Ketchakiddee Creek is officially described as:
Kids under 4 feet tall can frolic in shallow pools populated by whimsical crocodiles, squirting seals and playful elephants. Let them explore mini waterslides, splash in a cave with a waterfall and take aim with a water cannon aboard the leaky tugboat S.S. Squirt.
Kid-friendly tunes and a small, sandy beach make this the perfect playground for water-loving kiddos.
Typhoon Lagoon also has plenty of rides for the older members of your family, including North America’s largest wave pool, the Crush’n’Gusher water slide that is inspired by roller coasters, and the completely dark Humunga Kowabunga body slide!
