Following a nearly two-year-long closure, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park in Florida is slated to reopen January 2, 2022. But before you get too excited, its reopening also means that Disney’s Blizzard Beach will be closing on January 1 for refurbishment.
Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon closed its gates with the COVID shut downs in March 2020, and did not reopen with the rest of the Florida parks in July 2020. Nearby Blizzard Beach did welcome back water park guests in 2021 after its year-long closure, but it will now get its turn to undergo a spruce up.
Among Typhoon Lagoon’s attractions are the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool; the coaster-like raft ride Crush ‘n’ Gusher; the family raft ride Miss Adventure Falls; the Humunga Kowabunga body slide; lazy river ride Castaway Creek; and the Ketchakiddee Creek water play area for little ones. Guests can also arrange to take surf lessons at the park.
