Walt Disney World has confirmed that it’s Typhoon Lagoon water park is scheduled to re-open January 2nd.
Blizzard Beach was expected to close on December 26th for its annual refurbishment. This was pushed back to January 2nd in order to give Disney an operational water park prior to the re-opening of Typhoon Lagoon.
Disney had originally planned to re-open Typhoon Lagoon in late December, but delays to the refurbishment pushed that slightly back.
Typhoon Lagoon will also re-start Surf Programs, including the Learn to Surf and Private Surf Bookings. Guest can make bookings now.
Last summer, Disney shared the exciting news that Miss Adventure Falls, a new family-style raft attraction, was coming to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon this spring. With construction is nearly complete Walt Disney World has announced that the attraction will open March 12!
As the final touches to Miss Adventure Falls are being added during the next few weeks, Disney is giving an exclusive first look at some of the unique artifacts collected by Captain Mary Oceaneer – a sea-faring treasure hunter whose haul was caught in a rogue typhoon.
Here’s a sneak peek at Captain Mary Oceaneer’s dive bell, just one of the many items from her journeys around the world.
It’s one of the precious treasures you will spot from your four-person raft, as you twist and turn on this fun-filled white-water experience.
Typhoon Lagoon’s upcoming family raft ride has a new name – Miss Adventure Falls.
Along with the change of name from the originally announced Miss Fortune Falls, Disney has unveiled concept art giving us a first look at the new water slide.
Miss Fortune Falls will be Disney’s longest water park ride, and features a conveyor belt lift hill at the start of the ride.
This is Disney’s description of Miss Adventure Falls, due to open in Spring 2017.

From your 4-person raft, feel a rush of excitement with family and friends as an aquatic conveyor belt chutes you into action. Then, hold on tight as you spy precious artifacts collected from all around the globe.

The Shark Reef snorkeling attraction at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon will be permanently closing on October 2nd.
The Shark Reef gives guests the opportunity to snorkel through a sunken ship in a saltwater pool, complete with sharks and tropical fish.
There is an underwater observation area is available for those who want to view without getting wet.
The park will be opening Miss Fortune Falls, which is a new family raft ride in another area of the park in 2017.
A brand new attraction called Miss Fortune Falls is coming to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon in spring of 2017!
Miss Fortune Falls will be a family-style raft attraction that takes guests on a splashing journey through the fabled Captain Mary Oceanear’s past. Legend has it that Captain Oceanear, a treasure-hunting heroine, travelled across the sea collecting unique artifacts before she became stranded at Typhoon Lagoon many years ago by a rogue storm.
Onboard treasure rafts, guests will ascend to the top of the attraction before plunging into a white-water adventure where they will be able to spot some of the treasures Captain Oceanear gathered from around the world.
With a ride time of two minutes, Miss Fortune Falls will be among the lengthiest attractions at both Disney Water Parks.
Walt Disney World has just completed the roll-out of preferred parking to all four of their theme parks, and will be adding the option to the water parks.
Beginning on June 5th, preferred parking will be available at Disney’s Blizzard Beach, and at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon beginning June 19th.
Like at the main parks, a $15 fee in addition to existing parking fees will get you a parking spot close to the main entrance, and for the water parks, will also include a bottle of water for each guest.
