01. What is Disney Typhoon Lagoon Water Park?
The Disney Typhoon Lagoon Water Park is a water theme park inspired by a Disney Legend about a typhoon that laid waste to a beautiful tropical paradise. This water theme park is divided into Mount Mayday, Hideaway Bay, Typhoon Lagoon, Former Shark Reef, and Castaway Creek. Overall, this water park consists of 12 attractions and rides, ten dining places, and one shopping spot.
If you’re staying at Disney Resorts or Hotels, you’ll have access to complimentary bus transportation. However, Disney rarely offers direct bus service from hotels to the water parks.
In most cases, you’ll need to stop at Disney Springs and transfer to another bus that will take you to Typhoon Lagoon. It can seem like a hassle, but it’s free and handy rather than driving all the time.
If you’re driving to Typhoon Lagoon, you can enjoy some benefits, such as free parking. You can search for the water park through navigation on your phone. Parking is free and is only a short walk from the park entrance.
Another mode of transportation to consider is renting an Uber. You’ll save a lot of time waiting for a bus to get you to other parks and places. Further, the drop-off and pick-up locations are just a short distance away from the entrance, so they come in handy.
For Water Park Hoppers
Although it’s rare, you can sometimes find buses that give service from one water park to another. For example, if you bought a water park hopper ticket, you could use this service to go to the other water park. However, it’s not always available, so check them out when Disney offers it.
Parking and drop-off points are within walking distance of Typhoon Lagoon Water Park. In the case of an Uber or a bus, you will be dropped off at specific locations, all of which are within walking distance of the water park entrance.
The Typhoon Lagoon is accessible to people with limited mobility. Guest Relations has a limited number of water-accessible wheelchairs available for free, but a valid ID must be left at Guest Relations.
ECVs are not permitted in the water. However, the wave pool allows wheelchairs to be pushed up to the midpoint of the wheels.
Neither Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool nor Castaway Creek has entry points. Instead, the attraction has an elevator and can hold three people on each raft. Cast Members can escort you up the elevator.
Guests with disabilities must be lifted into the chair from the pool’s edge by a party member. In general, guests must walk up a hill and depend on others to assist them in transferring from their wheelchairs to the attraction. No Cast Member is permitted to assist Guests physically with wheelchair transfers.
All restrooms are wheelchair accessible. In addition, the restrooms at Guest Services and First Aid are companion-assisted.
