Surf’s up at Walt Disney World Resort’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, where legend tells the tale of a whirlwind storm. Hurling surfboards into palm trees, propelling small boats onto rooftops, and impaling a shrimp boat to the top of volcanic Mount Mayday, the tempest finally calmed and left behind a tropical paradise where you’ll experience peaceful bliss and pulse-pounding adventure alike!
The action begins with the park’s raft rides, which include solo runs at Keelhaul Falls and the extra-intense Mayday Falls. Or, grab a partner for the two-person Crush ‘n’ Gusher, a 400-foot “water coaster.” And the whole gang can enjoy a four-person journey on Gang Plank Falls or Typhoon Lagoon’s newest attraction, Miss Adventure Falls — one of the longest rides at any Disney park.
Not that you need a raft to have a fast time here. Storm Slides offer three ways to zip downhill in a hurry, and Humunga Kowabunga will send you flying 214 feet down at a 60-degree angle … in the dark!
Kids won’t be left out of the fun, either, thanks to Ketchakiddee Creek — featuring aquatic activities for little ones — and Bay Slides’ pint-sized runs. The latter feed into a shallow, secluded corner of Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool, where parents can enjoy 6-foot swells in the deeper section. And the whole family can take a relaxing journey around the park on the 2,000-foot-long Castaway Creek.

Crush ‘n’ Gusher
