Along with Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon is one Walt Disney World’s two current water parks. This park features 9 exciting water slides: the Crush ‘n’ Gusher (Banana Blaster, Coconut Crusher, and Pineapple Plunger), Gang Plank Falls, Humunga Kowabunga, Keelhaul Falls, Mayday Falls, the Storm Slides. Add to this the Shark Reef where you can swim with leopard and bonnethead sharks, stingrays and lots of other tropical fish in a saltwater coral reef environment.
Basic snorkels, masks and life jackets are provided for free. However, if you would like to lengthen your experience go on over to Hammer Head Fred’s Dive Shop to learn about the SAS (Supplied Air Snorkeling). For an additional fee you can use this equipment to give you more time with our special, fishy friends.
Even the tykes will have a blast at Ketchakiddee Creek with slides, crawl tubes, waterfalls, fountains and a mini rapids ride that is all made especially for younger children under 48 inches tall.

According to Disney legend, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon was created by an epic storm. Surfboards were hurled into palm trees and boats were tossed around like toys.
The typhoon made the storm-soaked Mount Mayday an ideal source for exhilarating water slides. Surrounding the mountain, a 56-acre topsy-turvy tropical paradise was formed—full of waterways, rivers, rapids and slides.
The park’s most famous icon is an ill-fated shrimp boat named Miss Tilly. She found herself swept up by the twisting tides of the fierce typhoon and came to rest on the peak of Mount Mayday.Every half hour, the boat’s whistle blows and the volcano attempts to dislodge the ship, resulting in an enormous geyser of water.
As far as safety goes in this park, rest assured knowing that Disney’s highly trained and qualified lifeguards all go through rigorous training that exceeds most national standards.
