Get ready to make a serious splash, because SURF’S UP at Disney World’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park!
Typhoon Lagoon is one of two water parks at Walt Disney World Resort. (The other is Disney’s Blizzard Beach.)
We’re here to explore all that’s in store for YOUR day at Typhoon Lagoon!
The Story of Typhoon Lagoon
You’ll discover the story behind Typhoon Lagoon presented in a series of signs as you drive (or ride, by Disney bus transportation) towards the parking lot and bus stops: “A furious storm once roared ‘cross the sea, catching ships in its path, helpless to flee. Instead of a certain and watery doom, the winds swept them here to Typhoon Lagoon.”
One of those ships was the Miss Tilly, a shipwrecked shrimp boat that guests can still see to this day high atop Mount Mayday, providing a themed focal point for the whole park.
Typhoon Lagoon Attractions
Yes, you CAN ride a coaster in a water park! Okay, more specifically, you can ride a water coaster: winding and splashing through 3 chutes on the 400-foot-long tube slide that is the Crush ‘N’ Gusher.
Slip and SLIDE your way around Typhoon Lagoon on the park’s many water slides!
- Gang Plank Falls: It’s a group slide down Gang Plank Falls, with oversized inner tubes that carry up to four guests.
- Keelhaul Falls: Take a solo-inner tube ride and enjoy the views from Mount Mayday on Keelhaul Falls.
- Mayday Falls: Your Mayday Falls adventure will wind you through caves and underneath bridges on this solo inner-tube trip. Disney shares that, of the three Falls-slides, Mayday is the “most intense.”
- Storm Slides: Will you slide down the Jib Jammer, Stern Burner or Rudder Buster on the Storm Slides?
- Humunga Kowabunga: If you can brave a “near vertical” five-story drop down Mount Mayday, then YOU are ready to take on Humunga Kowabunga!
- Miss Adventure Falls: See the treasures of Captain Mary Oceaneer as you set sail on this whitewater rafting journey for groups up to four!
Get ready to catch some serious waves — we’re talking about 6-foot swells! — at the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool!
Looking to relax and float the day away? Then Castaway Creek, the lazy river that winds around the park, may be just your speed.
Just for Kids
Ketchakiddee Creek features shallow pools, mini water slides, and adventure upon the S.S. Squirt for children 4 feet and under.
Bay Slides features slides custom-made for guests 60 inches and under.

Unlike the Disney World theme parks, the water parks DO have refillable drink mug options. (These are entirely separate from the Refillable Resort Mugs that guests can purchase at the Disney World hotels.)

Typhoon Lagoon Extras
Surf Lessons and Private Sessions
You can learn to SURF in Disney World! This 2.5-hour Surf Lesson (held prior to park opening) is offered on select days, with a class size limited to 12 guests. Breakfast and digital photo images from the session are included.
The cost is $199.00 per guest (ages 8 and older), and interested guests may book by calling 407-WDW-PLAY (7529). Surfing equipment and towels are provided.
Private sessions are also available; however, these are for experienced surfers. These sessions are offered before or after regular park operating hours. 100 waves are broken into sets of 25 throughout the session, and this experience is limited to 25 guests. Interested guests may learn more and book the experience online.
H2O Glow Nights
H2O Glow Nights is an after hours event held at Typhoon Lagoon for select dates during the summer!
This extra ticket event features glow-in-the-dark fun after the sun goes down with shorter wait times for the park’s waterslides, a DJ dance party, and more.
Typhoon Lagoon Add-ons
Guests may choose to upgrade their regular-hours Typhoon Lagoon experience with an optional add-on. Beachcomber Shacks include room for up to 6 guests complete with towels, cushioned seating, refillable Water Park drink mugs, a locker to store belongings, and a cooler filled with ice and bottled water.
Getaway Glen Umbrellas can accommodate up to 4 guests, complete with a beach umbrella (of course!), towels, two reserved loungers and two reserved beach chairs.
There are also complimentary towels available for Disney Resort hotel guests. If you are not staying at a Disney Resort, you are able to rent a towel for $2 each, but you are also more than welcome to bring your own! Guests may also rent lockers for the day to store belongings; visit Singapore Sal’s or High ‘N Dry Rentals to inquire.
