Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida has welcomed visitors for the first time in nearly two years after closing in 2020 in response to Covid-19.
Typhoon Lagoon, which reopened on January 2, 2022, had been closed since March 2020 due to the pandemic. Its sister water park, Disney’s Blizzard Beach, reopened in March 2021.
Inspired by a tropical paradise, Typhoon Lagoon features waterslides including ‘Crush ‘n’ Gusher’ and ‘Storm Slides’. Attractions also include a lazy river called ‘Castaway Creek’, family-friendly water rides, and America’s largest outdoor wave pool.
New offerings include a shipwreck-inspired F&B outlet at Typhoon Tilly’s called ‘Snack Shack’, serving Moana-inspired Dole Whip character cones, as well as mango, lime, raspberry and pineapple Dole Whip.

To mark the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World, Typhoon Lagoon has also added new menu items, including ‘Walt’s Chili Nachos’ and ‘EARidescent Ice Dream Cone’.
In an interview with CNBC’s David Faber, Iger said he knew it was time to leave Disney as he was becoming “a little bit more dismissive of other people’s opinions”.
“Over time, I started listening less and maybe with a little less tolerance of other people’s opinions, maybe because of getting a little bit more overconfident in my own, which is sometimes what happens when you get built up,” Iger said.
