An epic typhoon hurled surfboards into palm trees and tossed boats like toys, and now this storm-soaked island is a water-filled adventure that offers snorkeling with sharks, sunbathing on the beach and lazing on the lazy river.
The fun takes place at the foot of Mount Mayday. Body surf in a 2.75-million-gallon wave pool. Zip down awesome body slides. Feeling brave? You can even swim with real, live sharks.
Don't forget your sunscreen! Disposable underwater cameras, which are great for taking pictures on all of the water attractions, are available for purchase at Singapore Sal's near the main entrance. There's no need for waterproof watches, you can always check the time on the Park's Clock Tower. Bring water shoes when visiting the Water Parks. The ground can get hot and so will your feet!
Many Disney Cast Members are fluent in more than one language. The flags on their nametags indicate which languages they speak. Measure your child's height before you arrive at the Park so you know which attractions he or she is able to ride. Study a map of the Park prior to your arrival to become familiar with the location of the attractions that interest you most. We recommend wearing one-piece swimsuits on the more thrilling attractions, including Humunga Kowabunga at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Summit Plummet at Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park.
In addition, swim attire with rivets, buckles or exposed metal is not permitted on the attractions. Lockers, towels and life vests for children are available for rent. Life vests are provided free of charge for Guests who wish to leave an identification card. Arrive early if you wish to secure a lounge chair. Learn to surf at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park before the Park opens for $165 per person plus tax. Call (407) WDW-PLAY (939-7529) for reservations. Guests under 18 years of age must have parent or guardian permission to call. Disney's Water Parks have quick service restaurants and snack stands with a variety of offerings.
There are also picnic areas where you may enjoy your own food, however, please note that no alcoholic beverages or glass containers are permitted. Parking and inner tube usage are included with admission in each Water Park. When arriving at the Parks, start at the back of the Park and make your way to the front, since the Parks tend to fill up faster in the front. Tired of zipping down water slides? Both Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park have "lazy rivers" that circle the entire Park. Hop in and relax! During the busy summer months, the best time to visit a Disney Water Park is after 3 p.m.
