Today marks a big day in Disney’s mission towards a once again normal theme park experience amid the ongoing pandemic. For nearly two years, Typhoon Lagoon has remained closed. Disney reopened Blizzard Beach this summer, but for months later, we could only see an abandoned-looking water park when it came to Typhoon. For many, the thought of Typhoon Lagoon becoming the next River Country was possible.
Then, we saw the abandoned state lift as renovations and refurbishments were seen getting done, which finally allowed Disney fans to take a breath as we could see Disney was heading towards a reopening. Today, on January 2, Typhoon Lagoon has finally reopened. That being said, it seems that the Typhoon Lagoon section on the website has continued to remain broken through the opening. On December 28, it was announced Typhoon Lagoon would be reopening today, and when we reported that news, we also noted that the site was broken on the page.
At the time, we assumed it was not working, as Disney was likely updating the page to reflect the news that the Park was no longer closed. Now, however, it’s been multiple days, and the Park has officially reopened, and we are still seeing a broken page! For Guests planning a Walt Disney World vacation, this could be a big issue as many people decide whether or not they want to include a water park in their plans through the information noted on the website. It also poses an issue for those who are currently at Disney as they are unable to reference the page for Park hours or information. Guests looking for information can, however, use their My Disney Experience app.
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.
Hopefully, the page is up and running shortly so that Guests can continue to use it as a source of information and planning tool! At the moment, Blizzard Beach is under refurbishment.
