When the temperatures in Orlando drop below a certain temperature, the desire to go to a water park is no longer as strong as it once was.

Just yesterday, Disney and Guests welcomed back Typhoon Lagoon with open arms as the water park finally reopened after almost two years of closure. For so long, Blizzard Beach has been the only option for Guests who wanted to jet down a water slide, but now, the waves of Typhoon Lagoon are back in action!

For a long while, the water park looked untouched, drained, desolate, and abandoned. There was no work being done, all water was gone, and it was clear that a refurbishment was needed. Luckily, we soon saw scaffolding in place with active work being done. This reassured Guests that Typhoon Lagoon would eventually return! Now, with Blizzard Beach closed for its annual refurbishment, Typhoon Lagoon is the only option available for Guests at the moment.

That being said, with temperatures dipping to 52 degrees today with a high of 64, Typhoon Lagoon will remain closed. Since the water park just reopened yesterday, it is a little unfortunate to see it shut down once again.

When the water park reopened, Disney noted:

The 50th anniversary magic continues at Walt Disney World Resort as Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park prepares to reopen Jan. 2, 2022. Offering tropical family fun for all ages, the park’s reopening will mark the return of favorite attractions and the debut of new menu items and other commemorative culinary features.

Known for its immersive storytelling, thrilling water attractions and family fun, the Typhoon Lagoon tells the fabled tale of a rogue storm and its ensuing tidal wave that wreaked havoc on a formerly pristine waterside paradise. From topsy-turvy architecture and storm-strewn nautical gear to the stranded shrimping ship, Miss Tilly, impaled upon the summit of Mount Mayday, each detail brings the legend to life for guests in different ways.

The Return of Favorite Typhoon Lagoon Attractions

Popular attractions and features will delight guests, including exhilarating slides, flumes and wet and “water-ful’’ play spaces for every member of the family. Among the favorites:

Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool, America’s largest outdoor wave pool where guests can “hang 10’’ while bodying surfing on the perfect wave every time.

Miss Adventure Falls, a fast-paced family raft attraction created, as the story goes, when Captain Mary Oceaneer – a seafaring treasure hunter – got her haul caught years ago in a rogue typhoon, scattering her treasure across this tropical paradise.

Crush ‘n’ Gusher, a thrilling water coaster featuring three 400-foot-long tube slides named for the various fruits they once transported.

Castaway Creek, a scenic lazy river encircling the entire water park, offering gentle passage past shady grottoes, gushing waterfalls, overhead rope bridges and lush rainforest landscapes.

Humunga Kowabunga, offering a choice of three adrenaline-filled body slides set against the steep inclines of Mount Mayday.
