Guests were welcomed to enjoy all of their favorite water attractions today, as the water park resumed normal operations.

Disney World has already announced that beginning on June 12, 2022, Guests will be able to enjoy all the excitement of Typhoon Lagoon for a little longer each day. At this time, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park is open on weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and on select Fridays, Saturdays. and Sundays in April, the water park has been/is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., including April 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, and 17.

(No official word at this moment, but we’re hoping this wet and wild trend continues throughout April and into May before the extended hours begin in June.)

Beginning June 12, however, Typhoon Lagoon will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Occasionally, a Walt Disney World water park must close due to inclement weather or the forecast of inclement weather, in the interest of Guest safety. Normally, as soon as the weather poses no threat to the safety of Guests and Cast Members, the water park can reopen and resume normal operations.

At this time, Blizzard Beach remains closed. It is during Disney’s water park scheduled closings that maintenance can be performed on rides and attractions inside the water park.

As with any attraction or ride at a Disney park, whether at Disneyland Resort or the Walt Disney World Resort, the Typhoon Lagoon water park tells a story. According to the story, the island was once a tropical paradise that grew into a resort destination called Placid Palms Resort. But one day, a typhoon tore through the island, damaging or misplacing ships, submarines, surfboards, and anything else the typhoon could relocate.

Think of it as a Disney Park refurbishment by Mother Nature. That “refurbishment” transformed the resort island into the Typhoon Lagoon Guests know today. The history of the “typhoon” is the reason behind many of the names of attractions at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park. Words like “mayday,” “misadventure,” and “storm” have found their ways into the rides’ names.

Typhoon Lagoon is the perfect Disney water park for any family that visits the Walt Disney World Resort. Are you a water slide junkie? Do you love the lazy river? Do you get a rush when you visit a wave pool? Are you into any water ride that has the word “falls” in it? Typhoon Lagoon delivers!

Guests who visit Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park can enjoy all the water fun they can handle. There are several attractions and rides at Typhoon Lagoon, including the Crush ‘n’ Gusher, Gangplank Falls, Humunga Kowabunga, Ketchakiddee Creek, Mayday Falls, Storm Slides, Miss Adventure Falls, Bay Slides, the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool, and more.

As with any other park at the Walt Disney World Resort, Typhoon Lagoon‘s schedule is subject to change, so if you’re planning a trip to Disney World soon–maybe to enjoy the World’s Most Magical Celebration–be sure to check the calendar at Disney World‘s website when you buy your ticket.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
