Typhoon Lagoon is a water park located at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, United States.

The park, which opened on June 1, 1989, is home to the world's largest outdoor wave pool.[1]The theme of the park is the "Disney legend" of a typhoon that wreaked havoc upon a formerly pristine tropical paradise. Ships, fishing gear and surfboards are strewn about where the storm flung them. The centerpiece of the park is "Miss Tilly," a shrimp boat impaled upon a mountain named "Mount Mayday" that erupts a 50-foot (15 m) geyser of water every half hour, right before the bells of the watch sound on Miss Tilly. The parks’ mascot is named Lagoona Gator who is related to Disney's Blizzard Beach’s mascot Ice Gator.

Trivia

  • Want to surf the perfect wave at Typhoon Lagoon? Surfing is prohibited during park hours, but you can surf after hours or before the park opens in the morning. WDW books Private Surf Parties for up to 25 wave rides so they can enjoy the 2.75-million-gallon wave pool all by themselves. Waves up to six feet tall will roll every 90 seconds, giving you 100 chances for a great ride in just three hours.
